Corruption of Noir


            They had been corrupted by money and he had been corrupted by sentiment. Sentiment was the more dangerous. Because you couldn't name it's price. A man open to bribes could be relied upon below a certain figure, but sentiment might uncoil in the heart at a name, a photograph, even a smell remembered.
