  • John ends the book with these words:

    “By the time I returned to the hospital, he was on the roof. Sherlock standing on the edge. He called me. Tried to convince me that he was a fake. That everything they said about him was true. I wouldn’t believe it. I still won’t. He was being forced to say it. Had to say it.

    Then he jumped.

    I owe him so much. I needed him. I still do.

    But he’s gone.

    He told me once that I shouldn’t make people into heroes. He said that heroes didn’t exist and even if they did, he wouldn’t be one of them.

    Which goes to show. He wasn’t always right about everything.”
