In his war, there were no rules, except the ones he made. And Lord Caspar had humiliated him. He felt the rush of blood, just like the old days, when he contemplated how he would crush a hated adversary. Let him wait, let him wonder… At the end, he wanted to look into the earl’s eyes. He wanted to tell him who he was and how he’d escaped from the carnage in the monastery, and how he’d prospered—not bad for a despised poorhouse boy who could rise no higher than a shipping clerk, eking out a living in London’s docks.

No quarter asked or given. If Piers could not resist baiting him, why the delay after he’d murdered John Collier? Piers wasn’t the sort of man to wait for Bow Street to pull itself together. He’d want him, Case, to know that the game wasn’t over yet. He wasn’t any farther ahead than he was when he arrived. After locking up his files, he left. Dark came early in November, and by the time he walked from Whitehall to his rooms on Piccadilly, lamps were lit and lights flickered from every window. He stayed long enough only to bathe and change his clothes, then he took a hackney to Bell’s Hotel, just off Covent Garden, to meet his friends.

But what was a title to a man who already had everything? He wondered what Castleton would think if he could see him now, if he could know how far he’d come since St. Michel. After escaping from the monastery, he’d spent two years in hiding, biding his time until he could collect the gold he’d hidden without fear of reprisal. He’d wanted everyone to think he was dead and they had. Then, when they’d retrieved the gold, he and Joseph had set sail for England where they’d established new identities.
