When he goes via the Place Between, Christopher leaves a life behind in
his (comatose) body at home.  Gabriel would know instantly that he was
world-hopping, and might by now even have a way of tracing him by
examining the body.  If Christopher really wants to give Gabriel the
slip, he needs a method of travel that takes all his lives with him in a
way that Gabriel can't easily trace.

I wonder.  Gabriel did something with Christopher's last spare life:
removed it from his body and hid it.  With only one life attached to his
body, can Christopher use the Place Between that easily now?  (There may
be something about this in Lives, I can't remember - does Christopher
travel in this state and notice his body looking thin and washed-out or
something?  Particularly vulnerable if so.)
