Example text

Overcrowded and dirty, Paris brought even the most levelheaded of inhabitants to the brink of violence. Conflicts were frequently adjudicated by a supply of weapons—from brass knuckles and clubs to daggers and rapiers—kept close at hand. When street “justice” was dealt, it came swiftly and often to the great shock of its victim. Only steps from the king’s library on the rue Richelieu, a watchmaker encountered a former customer. Bypassing all polite greetings, the man launched into vitriolic complaints about defects in the watch he had bought a year earlier.

D’Aubray had been ill before the trip to Offémont. Moreover, the only person close enough to poison d’Aubray at Offémont was the marquise. The very idea was preposterous. Surely a woman “raised in an honest family, who had such a pleasant face and complexion, and appeared so good natured” could not be capable of poisoning her own father. Equally reluctant to pursue the question, the civil lieutenant’s doctors declared that the sixty-six-year-old man had died of a sudden return of gout, an illness he had battled several years earlier.

As Tardieu crouched to retrieve it, the second brother reached underneath his belt and removed a dagger. With four strokes to the neck, Tardieu crumpled to the floor. Servants discovered the couple’s corpses when they returned from church. Shocked, they ran into the streets screaming. The local guardsmen came and, after searching the home, they found the younger of the two brothers crouching on the roof.
