Код? - сердито переспросила. Она посмотрела на панель управления. Под главной клавиатурой была еще одна, меньшего размера, с крошечными кнопками. На каждой - буква алфавита. Сьюзан повернулась к. - Так скажите же мне. Стратмор задумался и тяжело вздохнул.
Стратмор на минуту задумался. - Не спрашивай меня, как это случилось, - сказал он, уставившись в закрытый люк. - Но у меня такое впечатление, что мы совершенно случайно обнаружили и нейтрализовали Северную Дакоту. - Он покачал головой, словно не веря такую удачу. - Чертовское везение, если говорить честно.
Si, senor, - засмеявшись, ответила Мидж с подчеркнутым пуэрто-риканским акцентом и, подмигнув Бринкерхоффу, направилась к двойной двери директорского кабинета.
