Obvious variations aside, there’s only one human body. 206 bones, 5 major organs, 60,000 miles of blood vessels. All it takes is time. Days. Months. Years, spent memorizing the finite ways there are to hurt and break a man.
Preparing for all of them. I’ve escaped from every conceivable deathtrap. Ten times. A dozen times. I can slow down my breathing to control panic and control air. Straitjacket’s kindergarten. Locks, too. Bench-pressing a pine coffin lid though 600 pounds of loose soil that’s filling my mouth, crushing my lungs flat and shredding my dehydrated muscles? That’s harder.
But far from impossible.“
