A Pocket Full of Murder

The Disorderly Snape

"What's wrong? Has Francis been rude? Then you must try to overlook it. I know you wouldn't think so, but he is thoroughly upset by T--'s death; and when Francis is troubled he doesn't show it, he just goes and makes life wretched for somebody."
-- Dorothy Dunnett, The Disorderly Knights

You know what I said before about Snape reminding me of a Dunnett hero? Oh yeah.
