  "Where is she?"

  "Brazil, we think. She's a missionary working with a tribe of Indians."

  "How long will I be gone?" Nate asked.

  "It's a wild guess, but I'd say ten days. There's no hurry and she might be hard to find."

  "What part of the country?"

  "West, nearBolivia. This mission she works for sends its people into the jungles, where they minister to Indians from the Stone Age."

  "You want me to find the right jungle, then walk into it to find the right tribe of Indians. I tell them I'm a friendly lawyer from the States and they should help me find a woman who probably doesn't want to be found."

  "Something like that. Think of it as an adventure. Someone has to go, Nate. A lawyer from our firm has to meet this woman face to face, show her a copy of the will, explain it to her, and find out what she wants to do next. It can't be done by a Brazilian lawyer."

  "And if I say no?" Nate asked.

  Josh smiled. "We'll find someone else. Think of it as a vacation. You're not afraid of the jungle, are you?"

  "Of course not."

  "Then go have some fun. You can leave next week."

  “她在哪里?”

  “在巴西,我们是这么想的。她是一个传教士,正在跟一个印第安部落打交道。”

  “我要去多久?”尼特问。

  “不好说,要我说的话是十天。不用太着急,要找到她可能会很难。”

  “在那个国家的哪个地区?”

  “在西部,玻利维亚附近。她效命的这个组织派人去荒野丛林传教,在那里牧养还依然生活在石器时代的印第安人。”

  “你是要让我去找到正确的丛林,然后钻进去找到正确的印第安部落,告诉他们我是来自美国的一名和蔼可亲的律师,他们应该帮我找一个可能并不想被找到的女人?”

  “差不多是这样。你就把它当做一场探险旅行,总得有个人去,尼特。隶属我们事务所的某个律师得去和这个女人面对面交涉,把遗嘱的复印件给她看,给她解释,然后弄明白她接下来想怎么做,一个巴西律师可没法完成这个任务。”

  “要是我拒绝呢?”尼特问。

  祝什微笑:“我们会找别人的。你就把它当做休假吧,你是不会畏惧丛林的,不是吗?”

  “当然不会!”

  “那就去开心一下吧,你下个星期就可以出发。”
