Pavel Zhirov, who was known first as Paul, was photographed with Madeline Hart by one of the women in her vacation party. After Madeline disappeared, Gabriel Allon learned from Anton Orsati that Paul had asked him to provide someone who could deliver a package from Corsica to Marseilles. At the villa where Madeline had been held, Gabriel and Christopher Keller learned that Paul had taken Madeline to a safehouse which he would not identify to his cohorts for reasons of "operational security."
