The Weekend Australian - Travel - - TRAVEL & INDULGENCE -

‘The af­ter­noon was slip­ping idly by in an in­sid­i­ous si­lence. No word from the squad cars, noth­ing but yawns from the oper­a­tions room and not a soul in the im­mi­gra­tion of­fice. As he walked along the de­serted cor­ri­dors, Com­mis­sario Soneri was al­ready look­ing for­ward to the leisure of the fes­tive pe­riod, dur­ing which he would be able to en­ter­tain thoughts he had kept at bay for weeks but which, now that he had dropped his guard, were surg­ing cheer­fully into his head.’
