About This File
An Eye for an Eye
Serbia, 1925. The Orient Express is delayed by snow en route to Sofia. Our heroes, by now desperate for medical attention, find an ally in Dr. Gaspari, a fellow passenger. His skill in medicine (and his readiness to use large doses of morphine) has people feeling better in record time, and soon the group settle down to play a few hands of bridge with their new companion.
Unbeknownst to most of the rest of the party, Mrs. Sunderland takes the opportunity to contact an old adversary once more, but his response is less...visceral than previously. After winning handily at bridge, the Colonel is accosted by a supposed member of the otherwise impeccable Orient Express staff. A brief scuffle ensues, after which the Colonel finds that he finally has something in common with Milos (although he probably wishes that he didnâ€™t).
Violet discovers an important clue to the Simulacrum in a local newspaper, whilst the Colonel experiences some unsettling visions as the Orient Express continues on its journey to Sofia.
Upon arrival, Mrs. Sunderland checks into the Moulin de Violet, whilst the rest of the party check into the local hospital.
We also learn something of the joys of combining cheese and cake.
