Nein, das war unvorstellbar. « �Den Tag über sind unsere Leute sowieso noch hier, und heute Nacht behalten wir das Grundstück im Auge. Vielleicht postieren wir draußen auf der Straße einen Wagen. « Hoffmann verzog das Gesicht. « �Unglücklicherweise wird ein Haus wie dieses immer ungebetene Aufmerksamkeit auf sich ziehen. « Leclerc schaute sich wieder im Zimmer um.
