Decade of Darkness
A little sister with a big mouth
Alice Albert is the younger sister of Dwight Albert and as such feels a protective sentiment towards him. She feels that he is the target of gold-diggers and woe betide any woman who gets friendly towards him without the approval of Alice.
She is nevertheless highly strung, having chafed under the yoke of monied society. This means that she can occasionally act spontaneously or speak out without considering the consequences.
In her quest to find out the truth about the disappearance of her brother, she forms a close friendship with Solomon Steinberg and an alliance with the party.
Caught up in the gunfight for the Majestic lobby, she escapes being shot at by Leonard the sinister porter but not long afterwards, she shoots Ursula, Leonard’s co-conspirator and frosty-mannered receptionist. In the exchange of fire, she is hit and very seriously wounded, but her life is probably saved by Solomon.
The arrival of the Albert family lawyer and a carload of private detectives who had been called to the hotel by Alice signals the evacuation of the Majestic and what the party believe is the end of their nightmares.
