Grant was shaving when he first heard it, a rumour, a voice outside his tent as it flapped lazily in the breeze; somebody whose voice he didn’t recognise said it.The magician is gone. Grant couldn’t hear the other person’s response.

He wasn’t alarmed, or certainly wouldn’t have described himself as being so. But Major Grant had carved a career out of the necessity of keeping his eyes and ears open, he was very good at it, and there was no point in failing to act on whatever information one received.
