Er sah sich unruhig im Raum um und ließ den gereizten Blick nie länger auf einer Person ruhen. Alle paar Sekunden drehte er sich nach der Eingangstür um und sah auf die Straße. Seine Haltung hatte etwas Soldatisches, und aus irgendeinem Grund machte er Sara nervös. Sie blickte sich um, um zu sehen, was er sah. Jeffrey war an einem der Tische stehen geblieben, um einem Polizisten zu helfen. Er schob das Holster zurück, als er sich auf die Tischkante setzte, und tippte etwas in den Computer.
