He tried to "force his hand" and lost it. I don't think see any hint that he was successful after Latro's return from the North. Are there some things specifically you noted? Latro's depression was surely due to the death of his lover, the Amazon (whose name I can't remember right now). Jerry Friedman defered: Don't mind me. I'd forgotten that incident and was believing Robert. I'll leave this one to people who have the book. Crush responds: Actually I was directing my question to all readers and participants of this thread. Important details in Wolfe's works frequently walk right under my nose (which is no surprise to some). --
