Burlyaev set his hand to his chest in a gesture of respect. 'Begging your pardon, Mr Fandorin, you are, of course, a well-known authority in the field of criminal investigation, but you have little understanding of our trade in the line of security.'
Бурляев почтительно приложил руку к груди: – Извините, господин Фандорин, вы, конечно, известный авторитет в сфере криминалистики, но в нашем охранном ремесле мало что смыслите.

She shook back long hair that was no longer there, a reflexive gesture Duncan recognized as what she did when collecting her thoughts.
