    Summary

    What are you supposed to do when you've been fired from your sweet job in Hell for thwarting the schemes of Satan, you've got a swanky flat in Mayfair, and you're looking for an excuse to spend all your time in someone else's bookshop? Obviously, you turn to the dubious world of short-term vacation rentals.

    The resulting Airbnb property has been variously described as "an instagram trap," "a vampire den but make it botanical," and "the weirdest bed and breakfast in the shared history of beds and breakfasting."

    Summary

    More than a year after his release from the Baltimore State Hospital for the Criminally Insane, Will finally succeeds in putting the Chesapeake Ripper behind bars. Hannibal Lecter is locked away for good, giving Will a chance to finally pick up the pieces of his broken life.

    Until a few months later, when Matthew Brown is pardoned and released from his cell.

    This is not a story of second chances, of redemption, of a quiet comfortable life by the sea shore with a warm summer breeze. It is a baptism by blood and fire, both a new beginning and a continuation of what was already begun before. Will was a fool to think Lecter's games would end with his imprisonment. And he was twice a fool for underestimating a very determined and endlessly patient Matthew Brown.

    Summary

    Will says, "You're the one who keeps giving me things."

    "It's courtesy," Matthew says. "Y'know, sometimes wardens pay for Death Row prisoners' last meal out of their own pocket. Whether it may be fried chicken, lobster, a steak dinner."

    "Sometimes," he continues, "the prisoners even share their meal." He shrugs his shoulders, rolling the muscles back, his hands still in his pockets.
