    A very nice and claustrophobic perspective, beautifully suggestive of the company's inhumanity and of how people operate in that environment.

    I really felt this did an excellent job showing Ramses's perspective, and giving insight as to why it was so impossible for him to reconcile it with what Moses was trying to tell/show him.

    Summary

    Rose was not one to offer platitudes for a man she hadn't known, to a man who hadn't cared about him. "What killed him?" she asked instead, for she couldn't think of any reason why Shaw would be telling her about this if it had been a natural death.

    "Poison's our best guess." He paused, as if considering how to most gently say what was coming next. "He took his final meal at the Hotel Iberville last night. So as you might imagine, I got a pressin' need to speak with your nephew, Gabriel Corbier."
