    Summary

    When Valjean arrives in Arras, he realizes that there isn't only Champmathieu to save, but that Fantine's debts have forced her to sell herself as an indentured servant to the town of Montreuil. It seems impossible to save both Cosette and Champmathieu - until Javert offers Valjean a deal: sign himself over into indenture as well... which would place Valjean directly into Javert's power.

    Summary

    Beneath his hand, Rivette could feel stomach muscles contract, hard and tense. A man like this would have had him on his back in seconds.

    But fortunately Javert had his prey conveniently tied for him. Like a cat bringing home a mouse for its young to toy with.

    Summary

    There were many nights Valjean would spend on his knees on the cold stone floor in his empty house, weeping as his guilt caught up with him. In the mornings, he would put on the clothes and the smile of the mayor once more, becoming a different man until Javert’s eyes met his and he found his disguise melting away beneath the implacable gaze.

    All of that changed in the spring.

    Summary

    Rivette's mouth tightens. He's pretty like that, Despiat can't help thinking. God help him, but he really has it bad, and for a police spy at that. It's not right that a police spy should have such sad eyes and a mouth that's always longing to smile but is so rarely given an occasion to.

    Summary

    It was easier than he’d feared to make his way to the barricade. The entire mission was stupid, of course; it stood to reason that with Javert taken prisoner, a second spy would stand even less of a chance to keep his cover.

    Still, Rivette didn’t have a choice. The moment the note about Javert’s capture came in, he knew what he had to do.

    Summary

    Javert peered into his eyes, using his thumb to pull up his lid, then slid his hand down to untie Rivette’s cravat. When Javert’s fingers touched the bare skin of his throat, Rivette cried out. Javert frowned at him, still keeping his fingers on where Rivette’s pulse was racing so fast that he thought he’d lose consciousness any moment now.

    “You’ll have to be silent,” Javert said. “This is a whorehouse, but still. If you make a racket, you’ll lead them right to us.”

    Summary

    Javert was still watching him intently. Then he took a step closer. “Perhaps Monsieur le Maire would like a demonstration of what I would consider a thief’s penitence?”

    Valjean was breathless. Now, more than ever, he needed to end this conversation. Instead, his heart shuddering with an overwhelmed, ecstatic terror, he held out his hands.

    Valjean and Javert play a dangerous game in Montreuil.

    Summary

    There were no cannons fired within his soul, no guns discharged. The battle that took place inside him felt as inexorable, as chilling as the cold that had taken hold of Paris that night.

    Rivette finds Javert on the bridge.

    Summary

    Javert opened his mouth, but nothing but a desperate laugh escaped him. Beneath him, Valjean was still at his mercy, his chest rising and falling. Javert could feel the heat of his body through his clothes.

    “Let me go,” Valjean said softly. “Just to save this boy. Then I’ll be yours. You have me already. I promise.”

    Summary

    For a moment, Rivette entertained the ridiculous notion of inviting his Chief along for a bottle of wine. His lips twitched slightly. He knew exactly what Javert’s response would be. No, he wasn’t going to get his superior out of this office, especially not with an invitation like that. He should just go home. It was late and he was tired, and there’d be more work waiting for him tomorrow.

    Summary

    Javert grasped hold of the simple cotton cravat Valjean wore. “You’re not going to have any need of this where you’re going,” he said, treasuring every word as he slowly pulled until the knot unraveled. “Open your mouth.”

    Summary

    “Tell me, Monsieur le Maire.” Javert’s voice had darkened. Was Valjean imagining it, or had all pretense of politeness gone? “If a man is caught in a lie, is there not a need for consequences? A need for punishment?”

    Summary

    Javert traced a scar. Valjean instinctively tensed, expecting a blow, but all Javert did was slowly follow one of the long scars that wrapped from his shoulder nearly to his waist.

    Summary

    Unmoving, Javert looks down at Valjean, who stares back with the same burning brazenness. Valjean is breathing hard, his chest still rising and falling rapidly. His muscles are tense; Javert can see his tendons stand out like cords of steel.
