(From the publisher):
Farret looked at himself in the mirror and saw how the pea-jacket collar framed him from behind, almost like a mantle. Generals and important aristocrats used to be painted this way.
He took out a cigarette and lit it. He saw there was real dignity in his gestures, that there was real strength in his face. Farret smiled to himself, feeling wonderful suddenly.
Yes, he was quite insane and quite dangerous. Before the week was up, he had brutally tortured two people, beaten and killed two others, and terrorized an entire community. Why? Because it was all part of his master plan, all part of his mission for vengeance...
