Nothing but shadows and an eerie stillness in the heat of a simmering night as a figure stoops under a lintel and makes his way quickly, through a labyrinth of alleys, before finding Berry Street and heading north along the Farringdon Road. For a fleeting moment he pauses and looks over his shoulder, to be seen briefly against the backdrop of a Smithfield's butcher 's shop... and grasped tightly in his hands, a book. Musty pages from another lifetime, another world away and on its broken board, just one word-- Liberty.
