Also, skip forgets about meeting "Charles Blue" on page 191 and at the start of chapter 4 and keeps trying to place him every time he meets him (he also keeps forgetting the last names of the girls who die in the explosion meant for chelle's mother, supposedly planted by Susan) When Blue returns to Chelle at the end he is going by the name Smeedy. At the dinner, blue gives skip the number for Coleman Baum and this is what gets zygmunt killed. Perhaps Skip is in someway Blue's "friend" Coleman Baum or that phone number lead Zygmunt to the submerged spy cell.
However, there seems to be no firm connection between "Blue" and East Asia; it is suggested he works for the Os and the Nau as a double agent.
Skip misplaced his walking stick somewhere. Chelle seems to ask about it and Skip blows that question off. Any chance this is the explosive device? Blue has a blackthorne stick as well.
