I didn't suspect him at first but gradually as I went along. The possibility suggested itself relatively early, but I think I recall a sense of shock at the end at the degree of Danser's venality. No surprise by then, however.

I find, having done some of my own writing and discussing writing in this and other forums that I'm watching the writers as much as the characters in the books I read. Not what will the protagonist do and how much does she/he know, but what will the writer do to maintain interest now and what is she/he holding back. Similar, but not identical things.

Who knows but one day I may actually learn to make use of such information.

Best, Kerry
