Während die Perry-Rhodan-Heftromanserie von den geopolitischen Begebenheiten der realen Welt Mitte des 20.

Sample text

Maddie had stopped talking, though her face twitched from time to time. Fitz had risked moving her into the recovery position, despite the injury. He hoped he’d got it right. Sam’s first-aid training suddenly seemed terribly limited. What happened if Maddie stopped breathing? He looked at her again and saw that she was shivering violently. Shock, he thought. She’s in shock. I should have covered her straight away. He ran up the stairs, plunged into a room, saw a bed and ripped the counterpane and blankets from it.

Fitz moved, very quickly, and got to, the trapdoor just as the head and shoulders of a man came through. Fitz had time to register a slightly sallow skin, heavy brows – Chinese? Indian? – then he saw that there was a hand, too, a hand carrying a gun. The gun was pointed at his chest, and he was dropping, dropping as the gun fired and – Had he been hit? He wasn’t sure. A second shot, and Fitz kicked out at the man’s gun hand. It dodged, but the gun jumped loose, fell down towards the landing.

This grip, too, was almost painful. ‘Neither will I,’ he said. ‘Come on. ’ She glanced at him sidelong.
