Peter James gasped. It WAS him, Travers Baloo of the 59th! He recognized the heavyset figure that could move so swiftly, the full black beard and unkempt hair partially covering the jagged red scar on his forehead. In his left hand he held the heavy, hardwood shillelagh, which he called his death club … The old army blue uniform and the brutal, harsh features — all were characteristic of Sergeant Travers Baloo, the pariah of defenceless men. Revulsion filled Peter James as he recalled those terrible days.
