    “Is everything okay, Chris’? You’ve been awfully quiet all night, and more than a bit agitated. What’s going on? I wasn’t the only one who noticed, either.

    Christa Delaney turned to her husband and hesitated before responding.

    “I’m sorry, John.

    “I—I discovered some very, very disturbing information today about the Russians and what they’ve been representing to us. I’m not sure what the hell to do. I can’t sit on this discovery, that’s for sure, but … wow! Off the charts doesn’t begin to describe it.

    “That is good news, Mr. Danko.

    “But she knows, Aleksandr. That is not good news.
