1st To Die notes; Chapters 24 to 30

cover for 1st To Die

Chapter 24

Maybe Lindsay had a feeling but her old partner goes ahead and calls it

“… Maybe we’ll just have to wait and take a shot at couple number two.”

They discuss any progress Warren Jacobi might have made with following up on the jacket and the wine but also have a brief pause where the partners edge around being reassigned. It’s a little terse but gets the point over that Warren doesn’t mince words or like the idea of not being Lindsay’s main partner on the case.

The Gates notes; chapters 25 to 27

The Gates

Chapter 25; In Which Bishop Bernard the Bad Makes His Presence Felt, and the Dead Rise from Their Graves, but Only the Nasty Ones

Oh well, a few clues are banded about but nothing that makes any sense. The furniture is in Jaz’s favourite pre-arranged display and it seems this “Raoul” may also be more than just a convenient coincidence in her life. He alludes to both Jaz and David having visited this location before but apparently they’re not supposed to remember this. Why, I wonder. Did Raoul make Vayl aware of her presence, if so, that would mean that certain events in her life are not coincidence or “free-will” but carefully planned & coordinated. And what does this mean for David, does he also have some part to play in capturing the elusive Edward “the Raptor” Samos? Continue reading
