An old abandoned spy
An old man, shrivelled by long years of too much sunshine. His eyes remain bright and alert. He tends to carry a sheaf of newspaper in Arabic, Russian, English and French. He introduces himself as Nicky, he “retired” to Lebanon many years ago, and he spends a lot of time reading and researching here to occupy his mind.
His Russian accent is faint at best.
Left here by Arkady Shevlenko, he is the KGB’s man in Lebanon.
