The Master and the Messenger
Many days and weeks after that cold night in Germany, when he had settled back in London, and after the report, a report, he was told, that had to be watertight, he let Alex go from his mind, without triumph and without grief. He heard how hard it must have been for him, being side by side with Alex, knowing and not knowing his mind. He did not know what to make of it. Alex was Alex and they did not know each other well, not really. Alex had been a troubled man for a long time. 'Alex,' he now wanted to say, 'Alex, I'm troubled, too.'
