Michael Dundas overheard the mutterings of a young woman coming out of a faint. They were unintelligible to him then, but when later that some woman was murdered on her way to see him, he regarded the few words she had mumbled as direct evidence pointing to her killer. Lydia Courtney was not an attractive person, but there did not seem to be enough actual malice among her acquaintances to account for murder. She had walked in fear the last few days of her life, and Michael felt that the cause of that fear must be a motive for her murder. He and Nick Prevost of the Homicide Detail followed through every piece of information they could get on Lydia, which, added together, made an epitaph for her and pointed a finger at her killer.
