I certainly couldn’t see the row of body parts. Standish finished packing the sat comms into its case and wedged it between the front seats, then stood up on the flatbed behind us, one hand gripping a section of frame, the other his AK. He was clearly going for the Lawrence of Arabia look. We reached the lower ground, about a K from the target, when a light-coloured vehicle detached itself from the buildings. Its dust trail flew high into the air as it headed out to give us the once-over.

I thought Sam must be taking the piss, but then I saw the expression on his face. It was like Standish would have looked if you’d told him Beef Wellington wasn’t on the menu tonight. He lifted his arse, fished in his back pocket and handed me a battered leatherbound book. ‘Go on,’ he said. ’ I flicked open the cover. ‘It’s the New fucking Testament. ’ I suddenly felt like I’d been locked in the same cell as a double-glazing salesman. .

But out here I do front-of-house and he polishes things up in the kitchen. ’ He listened some more, then finally cut away, almost throwing the handset back at me.
