Since the advent of the Brownshirts, there was no protection either from a jackbooted invasion that left broken heads and windows in its wake. But here . . she thanked God for the German middle class. No bears here. They’d never get past Frau Schinkel. And there’d been at least one good thing from last night: she carried a healing memory of the concerned eyes of the policeman who’d sat City of Shadows 55 beside her on the stairs. A stranger, a man whose name she didn’t know, but kind. She wished she hadn’t had to lie to him.

The sitting room was three times the size of Esther’s bed-sit in Moabit, and as a joke—she hoped it was a joke—Nick had sent his hunting prints to decorate one of its walls.
