The next day, someone knocks on Gerard’s door. It’s Erik, his body torn, but dapper as always, a warm smile on his face, but the slightest strange twitch in his eye, a stiffness in his limbs, a drawl in his voice.
This isn’t his son. But Gerard doesn’t care.
When Comte Philippe is mysteriously murdered by what seems to be a wild beast some days later, Gerard pretends to be a witness to attest the case. Christine finds out about Gerard’s horrid crime soon enough. But instead of recoiling from the old man in horror, she comes knocking on his door too.
