A general in the US army is a little indiscreet and tells me about a plan for hit squads. Later, unbeknownst to him, I overhear a conversation he has with another military man, who is also being indiscreet, about surveillance of dissidents. The implications are inescapable. When the general glances at me, he knows I have put two and two together. I quickly realise he will decide that I must be eliminated. So I make a run for it through some complicated fortifications, together with somebody who supports me.
