"I walked right into a trap," recounted W. while they huddled into his tiny rented room, across the street from a stream that gurgled happily in its lowered bed. "They have eyes everywhere. At the train station. At the post office."

"What about your acquaintance?" asked the Caretaker.

The old man shook his head. "He's a shadow now. Either I've been away for too long, or else..."

"So much for your investigation."

"On the contrary. I found the center of things."

"You know who's behind this, then." Y.'s was a statement, not a question.

"Ah, but you know him as well, dear. Didn't you recognize the crest on his house?"

Anton snapped his fingers. "Val's photos," he told the Caretaker. The Reaper nodded glumly.

"So you know this... person?" asked Anne.

"Oh yes. We should have taken him down a long time ago."

"We may yet succeed," puffed W. "But first we need to get ourselves home."
