Chapter abstracts are short descriptions of events that occur in each chapter. They highlight major plot events and detail the important relationships and characteristics of characters and objects. The Chapter Abstracts can be used to review what the students have read, or to prepare the students for what they will read. Hand the abstracts out in class as a study guide, or use them as a "key" for a class discussion. They are relatively brief, but can serve to be an excellent refresher of the text for either a student or teacher.

* His herdsman, Jacobus, tells him that a body has been found by the river.
* Mehring notices the body must have been dumped, because it does not have mud on its shoes; the body is also well-dressed.
