murder, which arouses different and deeper emotions than the murder of a
stranger. A hundred years ago Mrs. Christofi would have been a tartar of a
mother who never allowed her children to marry; 200 years ago she would have

Roman empress, and before that her story would have formed the basis of a
tragedy for her Greek ...

death of her husband. Her love for her son is no doubt genuine but its
manifestations are ...

sister." He shook his head. It was as if he couldn't judge her, couldn't judge at all
