demand to see your superior officer.” The Gestapo man's hands were flat on the
desk. He lifted his right index finger, the smallest possible gesture. One of the
policemen hit Hubbard on the right kidney with his baton. Another looped a chain
around Hubbard's thumb and twisted. A third seized him by the arm and twisted it
to his shoulder blades. The last policeman stood, legs spread, baton held across
his thighs, ...
