Argyle gives me a dark look. 'There's no need for that. If you do insist on being difficult, I'll keep watch as you sleep. If there's anything amiss I can wake you up and you can barricade yourself in the laundry until help arrives.' He pauses for a moment. 'On second thoughts, you might like to keep that pepper spray close at hand after all.'

'You'll be able to stay up all night?' I ask him.

'Of course,' he responds. 'I am nocturnal, you know.'

Just in case, I call Raff again as the sun sets. I get the machine.
