The Shadow Wiki

Quote1.png Tonight, your evil design was thwarted. Thomas Telford, the man you sought to kill, did not swallow that poisoned drink. I warned him, and he is safe. He stopped on the brink of death. He will be at the seance tonight. You will not be with him. Death will come to you, Martin Slade! Death that you cannot escape. You will linger in the death cell, waiting — waiting — for your day of doom! Death by the chair, if you prefer to wait. Death now, by my hand, if you choose to struggle. Death, of your own design, if you wish it. Death that you designed for others should be good enough for you, Martin Slade! Quote2.png
