Great little story. Great POV (we knew there were secrets), great imagery (hushed laughter echoed in the cellars . . . splashing footsteps among vaults), and great representation of an vivid imagination (drop-forges for bones and skulls, hooks along the dark where they had hung to dry the breathing men).
By the way, is this the same Michael Cadnum that was a National Book Award finalist a few years ago?
