General Korolkow schien allmählich besänftigt zu sein, er entspannte sich auf seinem Sessel. « Jarkow senkte den Blick. Am liebsten hätte er gefragt, wie es denn möglich war, dass nicht einmal der Chef des FSB wusste, was sich hinter dem Begriff »Schwert des Marschalls« verbarg.

Das ›Schwert des Marschalls‹ und sein Besitzer Otto Forsman müssen gefunden und beide müssen … vernichtet werden.
