The Hanging Tree

She really had no idea what she was asking for, but I knew better than to try and explain. “Understood,” I said.

“And Peter,” said Lady Ty, “Nightingale is not to know about this—is that clear?”

“Crystal,” I said.

As soon as she hung up, I called the Folly.

“Well,” said Dr. Vaughan, “here’s the thing. If you look at this close-up here—see where the brain looks spongy? These are indications of tiny points of tissue damage to the brain.”

“Caused by what?” I asked.

Dr. Walid chuckled and Dr. Vaughan sighed.

“To be honest, my guess would be that somebody sliced open her brain, pricked it with narrow bore needles and then reassembled the brain—seamlessly mind you—and then popped it back in her head with her none the wiser.”

“That seems an unlikely scenario,” I said.

“It does, doesn’t it,” said Dr. Vaughan.

“Sir,” I said, because Stephanopoulos wanted me to encourage him but not too much.

“I know it’s hard, Peter,” she’d said. “But if you could contain your erudition and ready wit for just a little while we’d be most grateful.”

“Am I allowed to be cheeky?” I’d asked.

“No you’re fucking not,” said Seawoll.
