of course you can expect to be questioned by the cops about a murder victim, if you are proven to have been ranting about the precise mutilation you were going to enact on him roughly 15 minutes before time-of-death...and the corpse thusly mutilated. however, Brady's resultant interview with a major suspect who likes to issue grotesque threats has opened a whole other can of worms. and yet, that also seems too easy, too early.
I'm going to try and read a bit more of this addictive book later tonight before beddy-bye, so that I have a fighting chance of wrapping it up in time I allot myself tomorrow morning. we'll see.
