A Russian friend of Brossard testified that she took part in a ménage à trois with the couple—Stern had them dress as schoolgirls.
Even though they went out for part of the time that Stern was seeing Brossard, this woman said she never heard mention of her.
Brossard's childhood was like a traffic jam of traumatic events.
Brossard walked over to the dressing room where Stern kept his sex toys—and, as he had shown her, his three pistols.
And when police seized an old letter her lover had written promising marriage, Brossard asked them for a copy.
Seems to me Brossard himself would be afraid of you if you looked at him that way.
His trembling excuse was interrupted by Brossard, who had seized him by the arm.
It sounded like a song, and the words were not like any that he had ever heard since he came to live with Henri and Brossard.
There in the doorway stood Brossard, bigger and darker and more threatening than he had ever seemed before.
"Brossard has been sent away from the Ciseaux place," she said.
