“The order from the prison engineer came through three days after she spoke to me. A limited exploratory dismantlement would be carried out before the end of the week to establish the exact extent of my inadequacy, followed by a small circuit insertion at the earliest opportunity. Of course, it carried an associated risk, but even if I wanted to object I had no choice.”
