peking and the tulip affair, nick carter

Nick got to his feet, picked up the bottle of amber liquid, held it to his nose. There was a faint odor of burnt almonds, mixed with the fumes of whisky. Cyanide of potassium. Nick knelt by Carpenter's side. With one hand he lifted the man's head, with the other he forced the neck of the bottle into the man's mouth. Carpenter sputtered and his eyes opened. He saw the bottle in Nick's hand and horror made his eyes round. Nick stood up and watched Carpenter die.
