It quickly emerges from this chapter that pretty much every one of our cast of suspects has been responsible for a death in the past – whether they would admit to it or not is another matter, and whether they would view it as murder is another thing altogether.
It reminds me a bit of The Usual Suspects – the main group pulled together are a group of criminals, and so there’s a sense that whatever happens to them, they probably deserve it – at least a little bit.
Either way, the die has been cast – and our first little Indian (or Soldier, if you’re reading an American version) or another word, if you’ve got the really, really old version – drops dead at the end of the chapter.
Nine to go. Question for the day: who would you bump off next?
See you tomorrow. No peeking ahead to the next chapter in the meantime…
