“You know these guys, you’ve chased them all at one time or another,” said Lewis, “Who better to lead them; to keep them in line?”
Grantaire stared down at the files in his hand, the names of Cosette Fauchelevent and Eponine Thenardier leaping out at him, and thought that this Mr Phillips had clearly never tried to keep anyone like them in line before.
