The Luminaries Part 3, Chapter 10

By Eleanor Catton

Part 3, Chapter 10

 Equinox (20 March 1866)

  • George Shepard is taking Ah Sook's body to the Police Camp—yup, it seems he killed him. Devin shows up and asks what happened.
  • When Margaret realizes that Sook is dead, she's very upset. George pats her on the back for her loyalty to him, though. She runs out of the room.
  • George then asks Devlin to have a drink with him and explains his backstory with Sook. He justifies his behavior, seeming to claim he didn't do it out of revenge. Right…
  • Back at the jailhouse, the bullet has been extracted from Staines's shoulder, and he is in and out of consciousness. He refuses to leave Anna, and so they handcuff him like the other prisoners to prevent the other "residents" from getting grouchy.
  • Devlin watches Anna and Staines sleep together and knows that they are lovers from the way they are sleeping.
