Reilly, who is now estranged from British intelligence due to hard feelings as a result of the D'Arcy Affair, is now headquartered in Russia as a representative of a German ship builder interested in selling warships to Russia. Reilly immerses himself in the corrupt world of Czarist politics in order to obtain the contract including bribes and coercion and takes delight in anticipating that his business coup will embarrass Zhakarov.

For the pig hunt, Massino hands out four revolvers, a Chamelot-Delvigne Model 1873, a Colt 1878 Double Action Army, a Colt New Service modified with an ejector rod to resemble a Single Action Army, and a Webley Mk VI. He then says that when the hunt begins, safety catches may be removed, and clicking noises are heard when this is done. None of the weapons in question, however, was ever equipped with a manual safety of any kind. See more »
