Aldershot on a pension
“Theodore’ll have to die, somehow; can’t execute him, but can’t have him hanging around Aldershot on a pension, either. Public wouldn’t stand for it. He’ll just have to be done in on the quiet, accidental-looking.”
“What hypocrites you are!”
“No such thing. It’s just the civilised way of doing it, that’s all.”
Flashman on the March, pp.211-12, Harper Collins, paperback edition 2005.
