Biography[edit | edit source]
With the destruction of the vampire Dirk Wilkins, Gregory Trask found himself in a position to offer comfort to Judith Collins, who had been under Dirk's thrall. While assuring her that the nightmare was over, Tim Shaw burst into the drawing room at Collinwood. Trask pulled a gun on him and instructed Judith to call the police, declaring that he had apprehended his wife's murderer. Shaw convinced both Gregory and Judith to abandon this tactic, as it would mean that he would have to tell the police about Judith murdering Rachel Drummond. To keep Tim from blackmailing Judith, he called the police himself on an entirely different matter. He told them that Tim Shaw had been in Bangor, Maine on the night his wife died and could not have murdered her. An uneasy truce was established between the two men, but Trask had an additional condition: Tim Shaw was to leave Worthington Hall forever. (DS 777)
