Yes. It has to do with my drinking years. I was a blackout drinker. I had serious memory blackouts—some lasting an hour or two, some longer. In the final years, I had them every time I drank. That’s a lot of time, a lot of things I’ve done, that I have no recollection of. When I was drunk, I wasn’t choosy about who I was with or what I did. Frankly, the alcohol references in those nasty little notes I showed you are the reason I’m so upset. ” Despite his skepticism, Gurney was struck by something authentic in Mellery’s tone.
Revenge? For something awful I did, but they don’t want money, they want …” His voice trailed off pathetically. ” “No. I told you. ” “Okay, I believe you. But under the circumstances, it may be worthwhile to consider a few simple questions. ” Mellery opened his elegant briefcase and withdrew a small leather notebook and a Montblanc pen. “I want you to make a few separate lists, as best you can, okay? List number one: possible business or professional enemies—people with whom you were at any time in serious conflict over money, contracts, promises, position, reputation.
If what you mean is, did I think of a number, yes, I did. ” Mellery cleared his throat. ” He repeated it, articulating the digits—six, five, eight—as though they might mean something to Gurney. When he saw that they didn’t, he took a nervous breath and went on. “The number six fifty-eight has no particular significance to me. It just happened to be the first number that came to mind. I’ve racked my brains, trying to remember anything I might associate it with, any reason I might have picked it, but I couldn’t come up with a single thing.
