and as I stepped into the splendid marble foyer of Drake & Sweeney I glanced over my shoulder just long enough
to see him standing in the elevator, looking at nothing, still ignoring me. Madam Devier,
one of our very resilient receptionists, greeted me with her typical look of disdain. "Watch the elevator," I said.

Thanks.
