His father has announced a reward for any information about his son; Russia’s finest detectives have tried to track Klim down but to no avail.
Only Klim’s fifteen-year-old cousin, Lubochka, has any idea what has happened, but she is keeping silent. There is little point trying to explain to adults the nature of the mysterious force that has commanded Klim to leave home, come what may.
