‘Avatar’


The Last Testament
Sam Bourne


It is in Jerusalem that chapter forty-three of The Last Testament by Sam Bourne ( http://www.harpercollins.com/) opens. There is this Maggie, troubled by a sinking feeling. Kyon? “Their phone calls were bugged, they were being followed and, it seemed, her work on Shimon Guttman’s computer had been watched. Someone, somewhere, was probably reading this right now…”

So, Maggie slips out of the room, and tiptoes down the corridor, “heading for rooms that all hotels maintained even though, in the era of the BlackBerry and wi-fi, hardly anybody used them any more: the Business Centre.”
