The stabbing in this chapter used to be the prologue of Tangled Web. It was written much more for the humor angle than suspense, and I was sad I had to cut the humor out. To read the original, funnier stabbing, click here.
Also, I originally had written a big long conversation that Eric has with the State Department (and with Special Agent Jeff Harrop). You can read that whole chapter by clicking here. (It got cut for time.) (Well, space.)
