Dining with Cannibals - Secondo


It is in the nature of corruption that you don’t see it coming until you start losing your fingerprints.

In the sterile environment that constitutes a meeting there are few oportunities for Swann to open his mouth other than to justify some particular issue which requires his particular skill: the art of making plans to build things; planning. He is tolerated in these meetings because he can access the facts that inform the following important questions:
