John straightened in surprise. ”You don‘t know?” John said, “Don’t tell me you’ve never heard of Marianne Doe?

“Is that what you need?” Sherlock asked, “A man without a heart?”
“Yes,” the woman replied fluttering her long, blond eyelashes, “Love is a terrible thing.” she said, “I hate love.”
Sherlock examined the woman from head to toe and then said, “Your life has been threatened. Is there a note?”
“Yes,” she said while unzipping, “He left it on my body.”
