He pulled the car back into the drive and phoned Jean Luc, masking his unease with easy banter. “Brother Luc hi. Is it okay to speak to you on a Sunday, you’re not off to the tabernacle are you?
“The whaternackle? I’m about to read New Scientist religiously, and sup a cup of irreligious full roast, does that count? How can I help?”
Vernon quickly described the conversation with Tarkey the previous night and the visit from Jarvis that had sparked it off. “Can Émile handle the Nonsense Filter app? What does he need to make speedy progress? We need to arrange a demonstration as soon as possible I’m getting pressured.”
