Headbutting Continues
13 March 2019 | by HitchcocSee all my reviews

Carston is off on his own. He is such a dolt at times, too young to know the implications of his actions. He has decided to take up the law, so he can look into the people controlling his possible inheritance. Of course, here is a twenty year old looking into something that batteries of lawyers have been perusing for decades. He has also fallen into the firm with Guppy, who is up to no good. His interest is entirely in Esther. He's also slimy enough to be dangerous. Jo, the young boy who helped Lady Dedlock, is cornered and has to admit that he helped someone (he doesn't know her name) look into the circumstances of Nemo's death. Mr. Krook is piling up documents, even though he can't read any of them.
