What happens here in the book: Bond is taken to Searstown
“The car went silent, the driver sullen. Bond watched the signs – South Roosevelt Boulevard, a restaurant alive with people eating, Martha’s. There were wooden, clapboard houses, white with fretted gingerbread decorations along the porches and verandas; lights flashing – Motel; No vacancy. Lush tropical foliage lined the road, with the ocean on their right. They appeared to be following a long bend taking them away from the Atlantic. Then they turned suddenly at a sign to Searstown. Bond saw they were in a large shopping area.
The car pulled up beside a supermarket alive with late shoppers and an optometrist’s. Between the two lay a narrow alley.
‘It’s up there. Door on the right. Up above the eye place, where they sell reading glasses. Guess y’awl want me to pick you up.’
‘Five o’clock,’ Quinn said quietly. ‘In time to get to Garrison Bight at dawn.’
