"Sonia," said the agent, "the FBI needs your help with a sensitive matter."

"You need my help?" returned Sonia.

And her eyes gleamed with a strange light of puzzlement as if perplexed at the FBI needing her help.

"Yes, and this is regarding your brother Tito."

"Is he in any trouble?"

"As I said before, nothing yet," Jeff repeated, emphasizing the words "nothing yet" in a voice ringing almost ominously. "Roger Stark, my boss, wants you to contact him day or night whenever you think your brother is doing anything suspicious at home."

"Suspicious?" Sonia reiterated wonderingly, her eyes flashing with a grave light.

"Anything that looks suspicious to you," Jeff clarified with a significant glance.
