Obscurity, The Thirty-First Chapter

In which we spend a sleepless night in the company of those left behind by the widow.

We last read The Thirtieth Chapter — in which the Comte met his end at last. If you have recently joined us, start with The Prologue.

On the night of the Comte’s murder, there were three members of society for whom sleep would not come.
