Carter was a shrewd and paranoid man. He took notes on everything and made records of all his dealings. A different kind of man would have done the opposite. Of course he kept it all hidden but that wasn’t much for a wife with too much time and more doubts. I’m sure he never expected me to find them. He had no idea I even knew they existed. When I found the contract I couldn’t believe it. Neither what it said or that’d he would hold on to something like that. Why would he pay to have himself killed?
