    Summary

    "Midway along the journey of our life I woke to
    find myself in a dark wood, for I had
    wandered off from the straight path."

    Dante. The Divine Comedy: Inferno.
    Canto I, l 1-3

    As Spring dawns over Oxford, Robert Lewis teeters on the brink of a New Life; a respected retirement, a new relationship, the prospect of seeing his children and protege set out at last on paths of their own.

    But his nights are spent among the dead, in a prison whose secrets are so long buried all joy, all hate, all grief, all secrets have crumbled to dust.

    As James climbed back into his car, he began to mentally prepare himself for the challenge of these next couple of weeks. He knew Lewis and he knew that this was not a man who would take kindly to being told what he couldn't do, not to mention the fact that he would be bored out of his mind in less than a day.

    Summary

    What happens after they die? How do friends go on?
    No gore, no violence. Just brief, blatant sentimentality. And angels.

    What does Purgatory look like for the Chief Super? What if Val Lewis lived? Why is Hobson sitting on tombstone? What if Lewis had died at CreveCoeur?

    All of the major characters are dead in these ficlets. And all of them are okay with it. Really.
