The heavy truck gets up to cruising speed and makes short work of the drive to Relay.
Relay is a village that's formed around an ancient power installation including a burner of fossil fuels and an array of wind turbines, some of which have been made to keep working. There are some massive tanks of fuel nearby as well.
As the truck drives up the road to Relay, following Rhyme's vision of the orange van, it travels through a field of strange antennae that rings the village. Shortly you all realize that the place is nearly deserted. Even if you've never been here, it must be. There are many shacks here and only a few people; squatting in the dust, peering at you all.
Which of you have had any contact with Relay? Do any of you know the woman who nominally runs the place -- Babcock?
Rhyme, the van drives through a closed overhead door and disappears. What are you telling your companions, Lemming especially?
There's a guy who came out of the building in front of you and he's walking over with a covered bucket dangling from his left hand.
Who's doing what?
