"He's probably planning an ambush or a chase," and with this he drew a pistol from his belt and held it in his lap.
- Наверное, он собирается устроить засаду, а может, опять начнет преследование. Тут он вытащил свой пистолет из-за пояса и положил его на колени.

Plus, he was a drow, and no race in all the world knew better how to lay an ambush than the treacherous dark elves.
К тому же он дроу, а ни одна раса так хорошо не научилась устраивать засады, как эти вероломные темные эльфы.

Then he hastens back to his ambush in the back gardens, and then learns that Smerdyakov is in a fit, that the other servant is ill -- the coast is clear and he knows the 'signals' -- what a temptation!
Затем стремится на наблюдательный пост "на задах" и там -- и там узнает, что Смердяков в падучей, что другой слуга болен -- поле чисто, а "знаки" в руках его -- какой соблазн!

Dressed in Circassian costume, he performed the riding tricks of the natives and with Bogdanovich had twice gone out and lain in ambush, though on neither occasion did they catch or kill anyone.
Он, одетый в черкесский костюм, джигитовал верхом и ходил два раза в засаду с Богдановичем, хотя в оба раза эти они никого не подкараулили и никого не убили.

The drow then melted again into the blackness, seeking a back route to ambush the ambushers.
Затем он вновь растаял во мраке в поисках наиболее удобного прохода, по которому можно было бы зайти в тыл к оборотням, устроившим засаду.

The four remaining giants, having seen one group of their companions buried in an avalanche and another group cut down so very efficiently, had lost interest in the ambush and had taken flight.

A score of men, at least, for this was the very thickest of the ambush, joined in this cruel and untimely mirth.
Видимо, в этом жестоком и несвоевременном веселье участвовало не меньше двадцати человек.

I was not long in coming to myself; everything came back to my mind at once, without an effort, as though it had been in ambush to pounce upon me again.
Я приходил в себя недолго; все разом, без усилий, тотчас же мне вспомнилось, как будто так и сторожило меня, чтоб опять накинуться.

Half a dozen steppe sheep-dogs, suddenly leaping out as though from ambush, with ferocious howling barks, flew to meet the chaise.
