Summary:
What makes a man like Ox? Not simply his enormous physical strength, nor his unshakable logic. Neither is it the fact that he has learned, at the taxpayers' expense, an awesome variety of ways to end people's lives. No, there is more to Ox. Beneath the love for opera, the joy in good food and fine wine, is a violence so real and so deep that it contains its own special logic, its own strength-and its own terror.
