Chapter 74 Summary

As Kamran stares down the barrel of his brother’s gun, Dane shouts at Darius to lower his weapon. Darius doesn't comply, only wrapping his arm around his brother and pressing the gun to Kamran’s temple. Dane continues to shout; someone fires a shot and Dane slumps to the ground, a hole in his forehead. At first, Kamran isn't sure who’s fired. A woman appears in a black robe that covers her entire body, including her face. She has the same build as Aaliyah, and at first Kamran believes it’s her.

The woman begins to speak. Her voice is familiar. It’s not Aaliyah, but someone else that Kamran knows, though he can't place her. She reveals that Haydar Ansari, “the Lion,” (226) is dead. The woman tells Kamran that it is his fault Ansari is dead: “As far as I am concerned, any man, woman, or child who call themselves ‘American’ is responsible for what their government does” (227). Kamran realizes that Darius is working with this woman, and finally places her voice: She is Ansari's widow, Bashira Ansari, but prefers to be called “the Black Widow” (227).
