    Summary

    Solomon has a good idea of what he’s in for, agreeing to stay at Hickey’s place for a few nights. In the years they’ve known each other he’s never lived anywhere more than a couple of months, but it is consistently some shithole with damp walls and no heating. 

    Only when he actually sees Hickey in the extremely nice flat on the quays he turns up at does Solomon believe he really does live there. With a flatmate, obviously.

    Summary

    “I was a carpenter,” Tozer says pensively. “Never built a gallows, though.”

    “I am sure Mr Honey is more than up to the task,” Henry returns blithely. 

    “Have you ever built anything, Lieutenant?”

    Henry ignores him again, staring blankly at the canvas. There is a stain in the upper left corner, rust coloured. 

    “Nah, why would you,” Tozer says, as though Henry had answered him, “badly paid and no glory in it.”

    * * *

    Dundy guards the mutinous Sergeant Tozer, who's feeling somewhat out of sorts as he awaits his hanging.
