Merrick was more often to be found at the card table. He’d known Merrick for a long time, from their poorhouse days. They had once been partners in crime, petty thieves who’d stolen from the homes of the wealthy in Mayfair to augment their paltry wages as clerks. Their careers as housebreakers had come to a sudden end when they’d killed a wealthy merchant who had surprised them in the act. When the authorities started closing in on them, Merrick had retired to his home in Yorkshire for a time while he, Gideon, decided to try his luck as a soldier.
They’d played this game before in Spain. Sometimes it was hard to tell who was the hunter and who was the prey. The ending would be spectacular, a fitting revenge for the destruction he and his special unit had inflicted at the Monastery of St. Michel. No quarter asked or given.

He wanted to tell him who he was and how he’d escaped from the carnage in the monastery, and how he’d prospered—not bad for a despised poorhouse boy who could rise no higher than a shipping clerk, eking out a living in London’s docks.
