This is an important book with a substantial argument to make.

Он надеялся, что не совершает ошибку. - Сьюзан, - начал он, - этого не должно было случиться. - Он провел рукой по своим коротко стриженным волосам. - Я кое о чем тебе не рассказал. Иной раз человек в моем положении… - Он замялся, словно принимая трудное решение.
Премного благодарен, приятель! - крикнул тот ему вслед. - Увидишь Меган, передавай от меня привет! - Но Беккер уже исчез. Двуцветный вздохнул и поплелся к танцующим. Он был слишком пьян, чтобы заметить идущего следом за ним человека в очках в тонкой металлической оправе. Выбравшись наружу, Беккер оглядел стоянку в поисках такси. Ни одной машины.
