Daniel’s not going to the office today. A dying man asked him to deliver a letter, so he’s doing that instead. Though he’s not sure who the dying man was or where the person he’s delivering it to is. Or what, if anything, it has to do with his new neighbours, The Illuminated Brotherhood of the All Seeing Eye.
