Here are some excerpts from my book.
Placed right under the noose was a stool. Like a zombie, Mat made his way to the middle of the bathroom and climbed on the stool. He raised the noose and placed it around his neck. He raised his right leg to kick the stool away…
Suddenly his fingers became sticky with a thick red liquid and he realized that whatever the object was, it was not an apple. Alarmed and very uneasy, Mathew picked up little Karen and the object she had dropped and rushed indoors.
Suddenly a thought struck him, and he turned around and said to Mat, ‘You know it is surprising that the blood on that object washes off all of our hands except Karen’s lips.’
The fiddler lowered his voice and said in a very quiet tone, ‘Something really terrible happened in that house Sahib. Listen carefully as I tell you the tale.’
Mat sighed. He was alien to all this cloak and dagger business. In the skies, it was your quick wit and reflex against your opponents’. If you were faster than him, you escaped, and your opponent paid with his life, otherwise, you lost your life. The equation was very simple. But here he was fighting a powerful enemy he did not understand.
As he read this, Mat could almost feel the agony the man had gone through as he wrote the letter. Mat realized that Gabriel had discovered exactly what had transpired in that house in the one week he had been absent. Gabriel knew the truth when he wrote that letter. And he had blamed himself bitterly for it. And if Mat wanted to save his Karen he had to find out exactly what had happened in that house that week.
