The hiss of it was audible in Cadel’s bedroom as Hazel covered most of Mace’s belongings with a fine layer of insecticide. After that, she picked up the magazines and took them out of Mace’s room, heading for the garden. Here she was probably planning to shake and swat the infested journals until every ant clinging to them had dropped into an empty flower bed. But she was halfway to the door when the phone rang – at which point she set her burden down on the hall table so that she could pick up a nearby telephone receiver.
Had she no idea what it meant, to have a hacker in your system? Obviously not. Her expression was tranquil as she turned off the machine. Tranquil but firm. ‘I won’t take any of the power-cables with me,’ she said, ‘because I trust you. You’re an honest boy, and a clever boy. ’ Cadel slumped. How could he possibly argue with a person who didn’t understand the full implications of a hack-attack? It was impossible. He would be banging his head against a brick wall. So he went back to bed without further protest.

By the time he fell asleep, Cadel had devised a neat little scenario which, though it would hurt Mace cruelly, could not possibly be blamed on Cadel. A perfect crime, in other words. But when he woke up in the morning, he felt ashamed. He told himself that such thoughts were unworthy of Sonja – that they were part of Prosper’s poisonous legacy.
