    Summary

    Connor hasn't forgotten what Amanda said to him. He hasn't forgotten what he'd almost done. Hank hasn't forgotten what he'd said to Connor. He just wishes he'd acted sooner.

    Summary

    He cursed himself under his breath. Probably this was just some ridiculous fancy social-programming-algorithm-whatchamacallit-thing, just a code designed to manipulate humans into giving Connor (and by extension, Cyberlife) whatever he wanted. Probably it wasn’t real at all. But fuck if Hank wasn’t falling for it anyway.

    Summary

    “Let me see if I’ve got it straight,” said Shadow. “So Abraham leaves, nine thousand dollars the richer, and in the parking lot by the train station he and Barrington meet up. They split the money, get into Barrington’s Model A Ford, and head for the next town. I guess in the trunk of that car they must have a box filled with hundred-dollar violins.”
    “I personally made it a point of honor never to pay more than five dollars for any of them,” said Wednesday.

    If there's anything Boyd can do well, it's play a fiddle and charm the pants off of anyone he meets. Ned wishes he could say the same about himself. In a diner in Atlanta, Georgia, the two partners in crime do their best to pull a fiddle grift, and it doesn't quite go the way either of them expect.

    Takes place six years before the events of The Moth who Came In from the Cold, though can be read as a standalone.
