Summary of Part 3
Diamond consults with a couple psychiatrists and gains a lot of insight about how Spence’s mind works. This is crucial information, but he still has to figure out a way to use this information to save Lieutenant Levinson, Spence’s hostage.
What makes Louis Spence tick?
The psychiatrist has worked with Spence for four years in the mental hospital. He tells Diamond how Spence sees himself, how he sees authority, and whether he is capable of carrying out his threat.
For Spence, his therapy used music. Hearing beautiful music made him feel secure. He sees himself as very talented and sometimes even believed he himself had written the song. But the feelings of safety and security brought on by the music would not last long. He would fight off anything that he felt was manipulating him to be good.
Time’s up! Diamond has to get going, but at least the doctor has given him an idea.
