Contents / Notes
|General Note:|| "A Forge book."
|Summary, etc.:|| "Oscar Stone is a hangman. Ordinary people do not understand Oscar Stone or his motives. Everything he does, he does impeccably. He is more bloodless than bloodthirsty. He is a profound student of his art, completely versed in its traditions over the centuries. He is a student of ropes and their properties, a master of the latest scientific knowledge about the human neck, a careful calculator of weights and drops, and an exacting observer of results." -- Jacket.
