To Murder a Malfoy by Snooty Bob10/13/2006
"I must not only punish but punish with impunity." This story is loosely based on "The Cask of Amontillado" by Edgar Allan Poe. It is also a sequel/prequel to my earlier story "The Evil and the Damage Done."

It has also become rather AU due to the developments in HBP. But if you still enjoy pure-blood Snape...
