[edit] Audiobook bonus track (transcript)

This details Grace Cahill's plane crash of June 1982, while carrying a Clue to Scotland for Anne Cahill. Image:EKAT.gif

Simon (tower controller): G328AlphaTangoCharlie. This is Inverness Tower. You are cleared for flight level 10.
Jim (tower controller): G087FoxtrotSierra. This is Inverness Tower. You are cleared for landing
Simon: N288ZuluBravo. This is Inverness Tower. You are cleared for...
Simon: Hey, Jim, There's an unidentified plane on the panel.
Jim: No information?
Simon: Just a tail number. R618GC. But no destination or pilot name.
Jim: It's probably just an oversight. But get the pilot on the radio.
Simon: 618GulfCharlie. 618GulfCharlie, this is Inverness control, please respond on 122.6.
Jim: Try again
Simon: 618GulfCharlie, 618GulfCharlie. Respond immediately on 122.6
Grace Cahill: Inverness Control, This is 618GulfCharlie.
Jim: 618GulfCharlie. Please squawk your transponder. You need to reset it, so information appears. We can't identify you.
Grace: It's for the best.
Jim: Who is this? Simon, check who the plane is registered to.
Simon: I got it. N618GC is registered to Grace M. Cahill. The plane is called The Flying Lemur.
Jim: Is this Grace Cahill?
Grace: Yes, but you really can't tell anyone you spoke to me. If the Ekats find out, we'll all be in trouble.
Jim: What's an Ekat?
Grace: All you need to know is that they have a talent for make people disappear. Have you heard of the Bermuda Triangle?
Simon: Ms. Cahill, I'm beginning to lose my patience.
Jim: Simon, call security. Tell them we have code...
Grace: Wait. If this gets out, it's going to...
Grace: I know how they operate? I urge you not to call security.
Jim: We can't let an unidentified plane wander in and out of our air space. Tell me your destination, and we can try to work this out.
Grace: Are you recording this conversation?
Jim: It's standard procedure.
Grace: Then I really can't say. You have no idea what kind of people will be after you.
Simon: Does this have anything to do with the Mafia?
Grace: Hardly. My family is much more dangerous.
Simon: How much damage can one old lady's family really do?
Grace: My family's involved with every major assassination in the past 400 years.
Simon: Are you taking a Mickey?
Simon: Jim, maybe we should call that therapist they use during hostage situations.
Grace: I'm 20 miles away from my destination. By the time you contact anyone, I'll be long gone.
Jim: You're not staying in Scotland?
Grace: I'm dropping a package off for a friend, and then I'm on my way.
Jim: You flew your own plane to Scotland to hand deliver a package? What is it?
Grace: Something I can't declare on the customs form at the post office.
Jim: Fine, 618GulfCharlie, please commence a holding pattern while flight control decides how to proceed.
Grace: I can't do that. My errand is rather time-sensitive. I have to leave my package and get out before anyone realizes that I was here.
Grace: You have no idea what is at stake.
Jim: You Cahill's seem to keep a lot of secrets.
Jim: Come in 618GulfCharlie. 618GulfCharlie please respond.
Grace: I was too late. They knew what I was doing.
Simon: What? Who? Those Ekat people?
Grace: Or the Lucians.
Jim: What's a Lucian?
Grace: They did something to my plane.
Grace: Oh no!
Simon: The Flying Lemur has dropped below ten thousand feet. Way below.
Jim: 618GulfCharlie? 618GulfCharlie? You are cleared for emergency landing. Proceed immediately to runway 4B.
Grace: It's too late. I can't believe it's going to end like this. They don't have a chance. They're going to destroy each other.
Simon: Who's going to destroy each other?
Grace: You have to cover up my crash. No one can investigate it.
Simon: No one's crashing. Just tell us what's going on, and...
Grace: There goes the landing gear. Drat those Ekats.
Jim: Simon, call James. Tell him we've got a code...
Grace: Don't tell anyone ... Oooh. That might just work ... Wooooohoo!
Jim: 618GulfCharlie? Are you there? 618GulfCharlie, 618GulfCharlie respond on 122.6.
Simon: That's not good.
Jim: Her transponder went off.
Simon: Where could she have gone?
Jim: I'm not sure. 618GulfCharlie, come in. 618GulfCharlie, do you copy? 618GulfCharlie...
