There was something special about the woman at the restaurant. Thalia did not know what it was, other than that she was obviously terminally ill, but that wasn’t it. No, there was something more to it, but Thalia could not put her finger on it. When Mercy Wolfe followed her into the restaurant bathroom, Thalia had no idea her whole world was about to change.
