Chapter 47: Missing Letters

  • Stone stays in Marion's room talking until the wee hours. He also saves the hospital's surgery program by adopting it into his own program.
  • Stone and Marion go to an Ethiopian restaurant in New York. The waitress recommends a place called the Queen of Sheba if he's ever in Boston.
  • Stone gives Marion back the bookmark he had left in his apartment. He asks for the letter the bookmark refers to; Marion thought that Stone had it. It's a mystery.
  • Marion tells Stone about his life at Missing and also gives him Ghosh's dying message.
