    Summary

    Finé still made herself look at the lists. Dead. Missing. Once, she had tried to make every name mean something to her: somebody's lover; somebody's brother; somebody's sister; somebody's child. It had swiftly become more than she could bear. These days, she looked at the numbers.

    And these days, there was one name on the list of the missing that meant more to her than any other. No lover, not brother or sister or parent scanned those lists with a keener, more anxious eye than the one that their Archduchess cast at the foreign press, searching for news, any news at all, of 'Eylstadt's secret weapon'.

    There was a moment, that night before the very end, when Finé felt as if it might be possible to stop everything. That it might, after all, not have to cost her everything she had.

    Summary

    Do come. I miss you dreadfully, and I don't see why the Martins should have you all to themselves. There's me and Mother, Uncle Leonard, my brother George, and a cousin from Australia. I fear we can't offer you much in the way of amusement out here in the Marches, so all I can do is throw myself on your mercy and trust that you'll have pity and visit -

     

    - your devoted Edith

     

    Jane accepts her schoolfriend's invitation. But everyone at Buckland Grange has a secret, and when Edith's uncle is murdered everything comes to the surface.

    Summary

    Nothing could be more natural than that Takeshi and Yuuko and Yuuri should form three quarters of a sedoretu. It's only a pity, says public opinion in Hasetsu, that they can't find a fourth and give those poor triplets (those appalling triplets!) a stable upbringing in a decent sedoretu.

    But that's not going to happen, not when those feckless parents can't think of anything beyond skating and Victor Nikiforov.
