“You have acquired something dear to my employer, ” continues the suit.  Wolverton slows his breathing, trying to stay calm.  This puts a new perspective on things.

“I am sure I don’t know what you are talking about,” replies Wolverton carefully.

“Do not prevaricate Mr. Jones.  Your associate Mr Shen was most forthcoming.”

The last time Wolverton saw Shen, the Triad hacker was shuddering in front of his CRT, lit from within by the verdigris luminance of the Flood.

This is also unfortunate as Shen is wrong; Wolverton doesn’t have it, it’s gone.  He blinks, which turns out to be a mistake.
