That’s a warning. ’ Mr Gatto: I kept hearing that I was a target. ’ • • • So, on 23 March 2004 when Benji saunters into his ‘office’ Mr Gatto is a little nervous. He is also surprised, even though moments before he had spoken to Veniamin on the phone telling him where he was, to ‘keep in touch’ and he was ‘welcome any time’.
