‘Infrared can be disturbed by weather, light and dust.’
The Professor nodded and stood up. It was Brett’s last chance to ask which of the bees was deadly.
The Professor narrowed his eyes at Brett.
‘Which bee? I mean, from a personal safety point of view.’
The Professor’s head dropped, and he sighed. ‘Treat them all as if they were deadly.’ Then he scanned right and left around the office, his gaze resting briefly on the computer, the briefcase, the pictures of old planes on the walls, and finally a photo of Hebden in his dress uniform with the Chief of Airforce who out-gilded him with his brace of metals pinned to his chest – but not by much.
Brett had wondered if the office was bugged – a precaution against something passing between the Professor and himself. The Professor clearly thought the same.
He stood up and offered the Professor his hand. ‘I’m sure Group Captain Hebden will keep you abreast of progress, sir.’
A wry smile crossed the Professor’s face as he shook Brett’s hand. ‘Perhaps. Be sure to test the security settings before you leave, Flight Lieutenant.’
Brett frowned. An odd instruction. ‘Yes, sir.’”
