A note from the Authors

The scrupulous biographer canít help feeling embarrassed when faced by the task of recounting this turning point in the joint lives of Patrick Moriarty and Jack Waszowski. Up to a certain time, the facts are clear enough-- but in the many years that have passed after that fateful winter night in 1896, nobody ever could ascertain what really happened in the dead hours before dawn, when even London falls silent.
Was it Dr. Waszowski who stepped out of the front door of the sandstone building in Kensington, or was it the more slender, tall frame of Mr. Moriarty? Did the step sounding on the pavement in the chill of deepest darkness mark the determined rhythm of someone who follows after his decision, however painful it may prove, or the hasty staccato of a man who runs from his ghosts?...
What is known is the outcome, and that is history.
