But not without one last twist in the tale.
A night of fear
Therefore the night they had chosen was dark and impenetrable, but for a pale half-moon whose light reached them faintly, like a table lamp in a cavernous room. It was regrettable, then, that the last few days had brought a change in the weather, so that shifting clouds now covered, at times completely, the curved face of that pale satellite. There was no turning back now, though; everything had already been arranged.
Lazaro had explained everything down to the last detail. He was to turn left at the crossroads with Via Bulbara and proceed along the avenue. Just beyond the fifteenth tree, was a well-worn path, which he should follow for one-hundred yards. At the end of this, to his right, was a narrower, less visible path, whose entrance he would recognise by the “No Tipping” sign.
Once beyond the pile of waste, which seemed to lie in comical defiance of the sign, he was to follow the path until he reached the villa walls.
Lazaro had also told him not to be deterred by the height: just thirty feet to his right, some missing bricks would provide a convenient foothold by which to scale the wall.
