Part 3, Section 1, Chapter 4

  • Mr. Kyrle meets with Walter and listens to his story.
  • Kyrle thinks Walter is freaking nuts.
  • He also says that even if what Walter says is true, there's pretty much no way to prove it.
  • What, there's no Victorian Crime Lab to do some DNA testing? Oh wait. Too bad this novel weren't set in the 1890s rather than the 1850s, because Sherlock Holmes would be all over this case and have it solved in about fifty pages, max.
  • Walter says thanks for nothing to Kyrle and heads on out.
  • He decides he's just going to have to take on Percival and Fosco himself.
  • When he arrives home, Marian has bad news: Fosco has sent her a letter warning her and Walter to stop poking around.
  • The gang pack up and move to new digs.
  • Walter says they must be on the right track by looking into the date, since Fosco is worried.
  • Then Walter hits on an idea. He says they have to find out Percival's secret so they'll have something to hold over the man.
