Had I never taught Ben Stokes to write the difference between a V and an A, I would still be ignorant of the hideous truth.

If poisoned sherry almost kills my mother instead of my wife, then a dagger, it is!  Her motives can only be hatred for the entire Collins family, but why?  Envy of our status?  Insanity?  I should be careful; I tell Ben Stokes that I shall be.  But why? Revenge is not sweet.  It is a necessity.  That knowledge is the only quantum of morality left to me.

A portrait of Josette — a wedding gift — arrived today.  Yes, a reminder of what must be done.
