Chapter Summary Edit
Inquisitor Glokta waits in a dark alley to arrest a high ranking Mercer named Gofred Hornlach who has been fingered by the assassin. The Mercer has bribed some sailors to smuggle him to Westport. Practical Severard kills Hornlach’s muscle1 and Glokta pays off the sailors.
Back at the dilapidated mansion, Hornlach quickly caves in under Glokta’s threats of torture and psychological tomfoolery. He admits to hiring the assassin on the orders of Magister Kault, the overall head of the Mercers. Glokta starts to train Hornlach to testify in Open Council, using the same method his mother trains her dogs; repetition, repetition.
