Kane had known of the murder of Stavros’s wife and used it to force the man to cooperate or else spend the rest of his life in prison. If that wasn’t enough of a conspiracy, Ariadne had then linked Stavros to Rachel Rachman’s campaign and implied that the assassination attempt on Karp had been motivated by revenge, not to secure the election for herself. The big question was—with Kane dead—who else would have had the motive and the juice to persuade Rachman to pull the trigger? After Karp was shot, Murrow had gone into his office to secure whatever papers might have been left out and noted the school photos of the murdered children spread like a fan on the desk.
You were shot…. …Mid-October? Time they let me out of this place. Karp looked around the room. Or at least tried. Except for a diffused glow from beneath the door, there was little illumination beyond the small green blips that stared out from the machines next to his bed like the eyes of lizards caught in a flashlight beam. All he could see were shadows within shadows, and there was nothing there to cause alarm or disturb his sleep. Yet something wasn’t right. He sniffed the air and would have sworn that the usual antiseptic bouquet of the hospital room now carried a faint earthy odor, like the windowless basement of his parents’ home in Brooklyn when he was a boy.
S. officials have declined to comment on the record. But the first source identified the “person of interest” as former Soviet KGB agent and current member of the Russian secret police Nadya Malovo…. Murrow rubbed his eyes, hoping that it might produce a miracle that would make the story disappear, but it was still there when he looked again. He decided to add an extra jigger of vodka to the shaker. His boss, Butch Karp, was sure to assume that he, loyal and tight-lipped aide-de-camp Gilbert Murrow, was one of the unnamed sources.
