His work has never exactly been easy, but neither has it been quite so difficult. Every opening he finds leads only to more locked doors. He is good, but so is Blackbeard, and he must play a cautious liar's game. He must be patient, he must be careful. Never has he had such a difficult assignment. Never has he been more evenly matched - a battle of wits he never thought he would face. Nor has he ever been in greater danger, every move a risk in more ways than one.
And he has never had more fun.
