    Summary

    Probationary Constable Peter Grant met me for the first time when I walked up to him by the portico of the Actors' Church on a freezing winter night and said, "Hello. What are you up to?" However, I first met Detective Sergeant Peter Grant when he jogged up to my doorstep on a mild autumn afternoon and said, "There you are, sir. It is you, isn't it?"

    Summary

    Nicky doesn’t want a stupid police officer to bring the bad guys to justice, she wants a soldier. Nicky is upset, Peter is exhausted, for Oberon it’s Tuesday. And Nightingale, of course, is a soldier.

    Title comes from the quote, The first virtue in a soldier is endurance of fatigue; courage is only the second virtue.
