"Captain?" one of the DCPJ agents now called from across the office. "I think you better take this call." He was holding out a telephone receiver, looking concerned.

"Who is it?" Fache said.

The agent frowned. "It's the director of our Cryptology Department."


"It's about Sophie Neveu, sir. Something is not quite right."



Usually detached and cool under pressure, Fache tonight seemed emotionally engaged, as if this were somehow a personal matter for him.

Not surprising, Collet thought. Fache needs this arrest desperately. Recently the Board of Ministers and the media had become more openly critical of Fache's aggressive tactics, his clashes with powerful foreign embassies, and his gross overbudgeting on new technologies. Tonight, a high-tech, high-profile arrest of an American would go a long way to silence Fache's critics, helping him secure the job a few more years until he could retire with the lucrative pension. God knows he needs the pension, Collet thought. Fache's zeal for technology had hurt him both professionally and personally. Fache was rumored to have invested his entire savings in the technology craze a few years back and lost his shirt. And Fache is a man who wears only the finest shirts.

Tonight, there was still plenty of time. Sophie Neveu's odd interruption, though unfortunate, had been only a minor wrinkle. She was gone now, and Fache still had cards to play. He had yet to inform Langdon that his name had been scrawled on the floor by the victim. P.S. Find Robert Langdon. The American's reaction to that little bit of evidence would be telling indeed.


"Where's Langdon?" Fache demanded, exhaling the last of a cigarette as he paced back into the command post.

"Still in the men's room, sir." Lieutenant Collet had been expecting the question.

Fache grumbled, "Taking his time, I see."

The captain eyed the GPS dot over Collet's shoulder, and Collet could almost hear the wheels turning. Fache was fighting the urge to go check on Langdon. Ideally, the subject of an observation was allowed the most time and freedom possible, lulling him into a false sense of security. Langdon needed to return of his own volition. Still, it had been almost ten minutes.

Too long.

"Any chance Langdon is onto us?" Fache asked.

Collet shook his head. "We're still seeing small movements inside the men's room, so the GPS dot is obviously still on him. Perhaps he feels ill? If he had found the dot, he would have removed it and tried to run."

Fache checked his watch. "Fine."

Still Fache seemed preoccupied. All evening, Collet had sensed an atypical intensity in his captain.

More and more headphones are out in the market that you can't really tell which one is good and not. At they rank the best products there is in the market. I surfed online and I found some at There are so many headphones but what caught my interest is the Grado headphones. I was trying to look for a headphone to use when talking to my husband online. I have a problem right now with our microphone as well as the headphone that I am using so I need one that I can vividly hear him and less scratchy in the background.

As I have said I am interested with the Grado headphone SR 60. It has a wizerank of 96 and so far the reviews are excellent. A lot of user recommends it especially if you are going to use it with your ipod as well. It has a good sound card and high quality hi-fi system. There are other design and style as well as different type with different usage. I may have to tell hubby about it and hopefully he will agree with me to get a Grado headphones that I like. utilize it and get benefited

This time out, Allan has created seven new project-based tutorials that push the built-in Particle Flow particle system to the limit and beyond. With a running length of over 6 hours, this training DVD is aimed at intermediate and advanced users. Allan starts off with easier effects like creating a DNA strand out of particles, then ramps up to more complex natural effects including procedural lava and particle fire, as well as building a crumbling iceberg, splashing barrels and exploding tanks.

To achieve several of these effects, Allan spends time showcasing two Autodesk Certified Animation Plug-ins: AfterBurn 3 and Particle Flow Tools: Box 1 and discusses how they can extend what the core PFlow particle system can do.

Finally, Allan illustrates how to set up your render passes and through the use of Eyeon's Digital Fusion compositing application, blends the various layers together to achieve the final effects.
