Bond laughed. "If you absolutely insist," he said. "And now listen, in exchange, I want you to try and remember anything you can about ABC and the London end of this business. That telephone number.

Marc-Ange said diffidently, 'And now may I bring in Teresa? She does not know what we have been discussing. Let us say it is about one of the South of France jewel robberies.

'Oh yes,' said Bond airily.

"Yes," said Bond, "still the Beretta."

Bond had no time to clear his head before the gangster gave a thick grunt and came for him head downwards with both arms flailing.

Tiger said, and it was an order, 'Sit down, Bondo-san. If you have any regard for your country, you leave tomorrow.' He consulted his watch. 'By the twelve-twenty from Tokyo main station. Your ultimate destination is Fukuoka on the southern island of Kyushu. You will not be going back to your hotel. You will not be seeing Dikko. From now on you are under my personal orders.' The voice went very quiet and velvety. 'Is that understood?'

'Used to be. Isn't any longer.'
