Robert passed Avery and entered Neville’s office through the large oak double doors that tended to overwhelm most visitors. Few people knew it, but the doors were all that remained of an old Catholic church that had been destroyed during the horrific bombing of Dresden, Germany. He was never certain whether the smell of blood and ash that he sensed as he walked through the doors was his imagination or some lingering haunting from the terror of those three days so long ago. When Neville had first installed the doors Robert had asked why and he had said that it was to remind himself that even great works can be destroyed in a fit of anger. Robert thought it had more to do with the sense of intimidation such doors engendered when someone stood before them.
