    THE KNIFE HAND

    Itís always cold just before dawn no matter where you are, heíd heard it said. They were right, the wind sneaking up from the riverbank found the holes in his denim jacket and quickened his pace along the railway cutting. The random flare of sharply inhaled cigarettes and rustling of newspapers guided him across the gravel to the knot of figures clustered around the gatehouse.
