4000 km is almost 2500 miles, about the distance from New York to Los Angeles. Maybe it should be closer to 40?

I'd like to ask why she was told to leave behind the laptop (from what I can tell, the cushion was not attached to the recliner, and even if it was, I'm sure they could breach protocol that one time and tell her about the knife, since getting the info on that laptop would be useful), and how they knew that the bunker was white if everything is tinged green. Even if they interviewed her after, well, why would one think of asking about a detail like that?
The laptop was left behind due to the corrosion visible on the networking jack. Unknown contaminant. Also an interviewer of the returned subject perhaps felt curious if the color change was something visible only through the lens or also seen by the subject on the other side. The first subject probably didn't want to… discuss such details.
"On the beds are two skeletons and on the floor is a third, laying next to which is a simple six shooter revolver containing no ammo. Three spent casings are across the floor near the gun."
Revolvers don't eject spent casings as they fire, you do it manually. They should still be in the cylinder.
The assumption that you should have is that someone emptied the gun and took the rest of the ammo. It was a fight for survival over there, after all.

I think that would be clearer if it was a simple semi-automatic pistol with three spent casings and the magazine removed, that'd make it easier to conclude someone had taken it after the fact. I just figured they'd loaded the only three rounds they had or something.
Revolvers don't eject spent casings -> Somebody must've done it -> But the three people were already dead -> Gary was here
I was kind of disappointed that it was never stated what was in the book that the subject retrieved.
It was full of poorly-written erotica.
I feel somewhat picky about this, and suspect the author is no longer around so it probably doesn't matter anymore, but "Subject is co-operative in all steps of testing" is conflicted several times.
"After several minutes subject agrees to continue."
"After some convincing subject agrees to descend but does not close the hatch, overlooked concerns about severing the pulley return system in doing so are acknowledged."
"Subject refuses to touch or collect a sample commenting that it stinks so bad that if they want it they can come get it themselves. Control declines and subject leaves bunker."
Perhaps a better term would be "subject is somewhat resistant during testing"
