It won’t work if I’m seen around the Palace of Patience before the hangings.” “What won’t work?” “The plan.” “Oh-ho! Nervy little Shades’Hill purse-clutcher, thinking you can keep me in the dark. What plan?” “The plan to steal a corpse.” “Ahem. Anything else you’d like to tell me about it?” “It’s brilliant.” A passerby tossed something into the kettle. Locke bowed and Chains waved his hands in the man’s general direction, his restraints clattering, and yelled, “Fifty years of health to you and your children, and the blessings of the Lord of the Overlooked!” “It would’ve been a hundred years,” muttered Chains when the man had passed, “but that sounded like a clipped half-copper.
