For twenty years, I have harbored a secret. People talk about my sons, and the evil things they did, yet still I remain strangely mute. I do not discuss my own actions that day -- or the rage I felt when I burned the two linking books which had snared them. Some people believe my sons died in those fires. But the truth is they did not.
You are the only one I can confide in, my friend, so I am asking you to come to Tomahna. There are things I must tell you about my sons.
