”What next?”
Bhuto gestured. “That is something you will tell us, Sean.”

”Understand, we are here to help you, but we are also here to help your father, and we could not — can not — do that without you. You are our link to him.”
I looked up at the stars in the midnight sky (one thing I always forget is how many more you can see) and blew out a breath between my teeth while I thought.
Finally, I said, “how do we do this?” I was looking at Bhuto, but he gestured to Brock.
Brock was holding a silver needle.
