Excerpt from Bawder House
The man smiles. It is charming and wicked at once and somehow I cannot turn away. He's a fellow gentleman. Dressed in a tailored suit the colour of dead ashes, fitted with a waistcoat in which his thumbs are hooked, he is an image of self-assurance. White hair tumbles thickly atop his head, his brows arched and his beard cloven at his chin. I feel toward him some bond.
“Brother,” says he, “I've a proposal for you.”
And so I listen.
