    Summary

    David knows this line of work isn’t for everyone, and it isn’t even something some people are willing to talk or think about. And he knows that’s part of why he loves it. Ever since the first afternoon he’d walked into the mortuary, armed with a case of discount makeup and a healthy fear of what he was about to see, he’d been surprised at how well the funeral industry suited him.

    Summary

    David has thus far refrained, with difficulty, from commenting on the flashlight (he may have mentioned the bears) but he is beginning to suspect that the awful chunky boots and the pocketknife Patrick always seems to have handy are just scratching the surface when it comes to his outdoorsiness. David hasn’t seen a pair of cargo shorts yet, but they haunt his dreams like a khaki Sword of Damocles.

    Summary

    He is in the Kremlin waiting hall, surrounded by white Neoclassical columns, sitting on the pseudo-Rococo silk couch, with Ivan killing his son to his left. He holds Deputy Chairman Shcherbina's report the aide just gave him.

    He doesn't know what he's doing here, even if his hands know the motions. But the motions are odd, like his first, awkward drags on a cigarette at twelve. Why does he feel out of step with himself? A vague curiosity for the report of an apparatchik is there at the back of his mind, as well as the throat-tying apprehension of sitting in a room with members of the Council of Ministers and General Secretary Gorbachev.

    Well, his throat should be tied. He hanged himself a few seconds ago.
