    Summary

    “Very interesting times,” he ventured carefully, taking a diplomatic sip of his wine.

    Molokov gave a dismissive look. “No help by the Americans,” he said with disdain.

    “You’d have to take that up with the people in Washington,” he said with the slightest lilt of amusement. “But I’m not here to discuss business.”

    Summary

    Bishops have a low rating compared to rooks because, despite no limit on their range, each can only cover half the board. A dark bishop and a light bishop can get as close as they like to one another; they can never capture one another.

    The American has never been one for facing consequences. After what he sees in the 1980 World Chess Championship, he wonders if it's time for a change.

    Summary

    Что за глупости, разве не знаете, что моя жизнь — это шахматы? Можно ли взять и покончить с дыханием, бросить в коробку фигуры своей души? Эндшпиль стихии, в которой единственной ты существуешь, — вы можете это представить?

    Summary

    Damn Freddie and his vile sense of humour. Why on Earth would he even think to publish something so…uncouth?

    Summary

    “What?” he asks, because Frederick is contemplating something to himself and struggling to make a choice.

    “After our rest day,” he says slowly, not looking at him in the eyes, “I’m going to play the King’s Indian Defense.”

    Summary

    Just in case things went wrong, or just in case he was sabotaged and needed an escape. He’d leave everything here behind and fly up to Canada in the many safehouses scattered across the country. He’d been honey trapping in America alone for only two years. It was too short of a time to judge anything, but the just in case scenarios turned into what if?

    What if he took the passport and fled the country anyhow, with no forewarning of his plan and no danger that could sway him with urgency?

    Summary

    At the lobby Anatoly asked: “Are you hungry? I think you’d like something more than just stale bread and tea, yeah?”

    “If it’s not too much trouble,” he said.

    “No, not too much. I’ll see what Yulia Alexandrovna has. Wait for me upstairs. You remember where my room is? Good. I will answer your question by the time I return. You’re a good reporter… it makes me hate you a little,” he said teasingly, and turned away just before Freddie was able to catch his smile.

    Summary

    Walter smiles brightly, folding his hands easily behind his back. “I don’t know what you’re talking about,” he says. “Congratulations on the win, by the way. Freddie’s been taking it very hard, he’s hardly let me out of his sight for the last two days.”

    Molokov takes three steps forward, placing him firmly inside Walter’s personal space, but maybe eastern Europeans have a different sense of that sort of thing. Walter stands his ground, relaxed.

    “Not much of a win for me, I’m afraid,” Molokov says coolly.

    Summary

    Фредди всё ещё презирал русских (что никогда не могло измениться), а Сергиевский — всё ещё — едва ли владел и десятком английских слов. Вместе с тем Фредди должен был признаться в своей зарождающейся симпатии.
