CHAPTER ONE. Mr. Sphincter pays a visit.

Thump. Thump. Thump!

Mr. Banto Carbon’s body instinctively jackknifed from the sudden invasion into deep sleep by this horrible, intrusive heavy pounding on his apartment door, and he grabbed his 45, flipped off the bed, and crawled into his closet. The dark, closed-in space sent Mr. Carbon's blood pressure to dangerous levels, and with the doorknob rattling like that his breath came in short heaving gasps.

They want in. They want in, the dirty, rotten….

Mixed images from those years with SS4 raced through his head. Oh, good heavens. That was years ago, before he became an American citizen, before he started the work at the Museum. Jackal. Jackal has found me. At long last we can have this out, you lousy, no good...Wait: maybe that's not Jackal. Could be a drunk, trying to get in the wrong apartment.

Pile drivers hammered his head. The door‘s locked. I know I locked it. Mr. Carbon tightened his grip, but the pearl handle of the 45 slipped like a bar of soap in his wet palm. He managed to hook a finger around the trigger. The sights! Focus on the sights! If that door moves...

The door did not move.

Carbon hated his 45, but she gave him comfort, helped him sleep, like those blue pills. After he quit SS4, he simply wanted the 45 to rest quietly in his shoulder holster, certainly not like this.

Thump. Thump. Thump!

Oh no. They’re not going away.

Mr. Carbon's stomach leapt to his throat, and he drew deeper into the closet, laying flat on the floor with the laundry.

Who the...

"Banto! Come on, man. I know you're in there. Your landlord saw you come home. Open the door. That's an order."

Steve Sphincter, my boss, is messing around again, waking me at odd hours, the dirty son of a…. Mr. Carbon peered from the closet at his glowing digital alarm by the bed: 4 a.m., Wednesday morning. Why’s he doing this? The doctor told me to get plenty of rest, and try to forget...

"Carbon! I need you, now. Let me in. Emergency."

He slipped into the slacks draped on the chair, the brown pair he wore to work at the Museum. Trembling, he somehow fastened the belt buckle. A carving decorated this particular buckle: a gun, a knife and a bottle of poison. Members of SS4 had carved this buckle. Colonel Henrik had presented it to him as a going away present. The memory of Colonel Henrik stepped from the closet. "Commander Carbon, the boys here - and I, of course - want you to wear this in good health for the rest of your miserable life." Colonel Henrik faded into the closet. Carbon hated the belt buckle almost as much as he hated the memory of Colonel Henrik.
