Об этой электронной книге

Captain Torren, the warden of the Dormigan Prison, knows that the mysterious Prisoner 34 is much more dangerous than the authorities think. Torren does his best to guard him, going so far as to break some of his orders, but the new governor’s sudden wish to personally inspect the prison threatens to destroy the shaky balance the warden has achieved. Will the Prisoner comply and help Torren through the inspection? What will he ask in return? And will he keep his word?

Captain Torren slowed down his pace as he approached the main tower. He wished he could stop before entering, take in a deep breath, gather his courage; but the guards were watching. He couldn’t afford letting them notice his hesitation. Tall, broad-shouldered, intimidating, he was known as a fearless warrior in the past and the ironfisted master of the Dormigan Prison at present.

Not that their vigilance would help much, if things went bad. But he had to keep them on their toes.

No, sir. Never. We know our orders.

He nodded. Good. Now, open up.

The soldier reached for the keys, two others helped him to unbolt the door and remove the huge iron bar. Then they stepped aside and stood with their swords ready as he pulled on the heavy door.

Torren could just imagine how the Prisoner inside smiled at these precautions.
