По глупости и незнанию он передал настоящему шпиону секретные материалы, над которыми работал его отец. Но теперь отец в больнице - его сбила машина. И за самим Вадимом уже следит ФСБ... А может быть, человек, который наблюдает за ним, совсем и не сотрудник спецслужб? Так или иначе, но Вадик не собирается сознаваться ни в чем!

100K S Ó Ceallaigh The City is teaming with activity as usual and it’s a warm day. This correlates closely with the average weather conditions for the season. We are proud, quite rightly, of our standing in the LOCE League (Law and Order, Comfort and Efficiency). We are usually in the Top 10 and that is quite an achievement. But nothing is perfect. Indeed, that very statement is one of the City’s slogans to keep us on our toes! We are also proud that our City is run on democratic principles (when possible), managed by our fine team of DM5’s (when necessary, but usually our parliamentarians are perfectly capable), and backed by what is colloquially known as Central Computer. But what was discovered by DCI Cody was shocking! I was instructed to write an account in this old language, an official language of the Archive Mountain. If you are reading this, you must be a real scholar! See if you can figure out what’s going on, but don’t skip to the end and then claim you’re clever! If you cheat, we’ll know.
