Sifting Through A Charade
"Nine men a dinner went by... six men in the shadow of their eye... one man they wouldn't watch, why? The two were ready to hear out his cry." - "Murder at Needle Hill" After Richard Bailey's last scream, the reactions around the table were varied: Screams to helpless gasps to surprised yet cold looks.

It was gonna be a long week for him, perhaps his last.
