“He turned left out of the apartment building and walked a block down to the Parker Méridien. Across the street Ed Rushia, in a chauffeur’s cap, nodded at the wheel of a stretch limo. Bond smiled to himself. Ed was certainly an operator. They had told him to hire a car and back up. He had obviously done just that and hired a stretch limo. The night porter was on duty outside the 56th street entrance to the imposing hotel, and as Bond approached him, he stepped forward.
“I help you buddy?”
“I need to use one of the public telephones.” He slipped a ten into the man’s hand.
“Oh, okay, sir. Thank you. You want I should get you a cap?”
“I’ll be just fine,” and disappeared into the bright lit interior. A minute later, he had swiped a credit card through one of the telephone booths and dialled the same local number as before.”
