|Summary, etc.:|| Murder, mayhem and magic. Locked in a coffin-like darkness, there is nothing to distract me from my memories of killing Reyad. He deserved to die but according to the law, so do I. Here in Ixia, the punishment for murder is death. And now I wait for the hangman's noose. But the same law that condemns me may also save me. Ixia's food taster chosen to ensure that the Commander's food is not poisoned has died. And by law, the next prisoner who is scheduled to be executed me must be offered the position.
