Interview with Erica Carlyle, in her office, along with Joe Corey and Bradley Grey. Learned about “that negress” that Roger Carlyle was associating with before his fateful African expedition; Erica believes that she was instrumental in setting Roger on the path to his doom.
Erica listens to the account of the possible sighting of Jack Brady reported second-hand by Jackson Elias. She tells of how Brady was acquitted of a murder charge with the help of Roger, and how they had been companions ever since, Brady being the one person in his life Erica considered a good influence on her brother.
Erica allows Dr. Schmidt to peruse Roger’s collection of occult books, which she is entertaining offers on from several book dealers, one of which happens to be at the party.
