His situation becomes so calamitous he knows he must somehow change. First get rid of the murder charge- then stop cheating on his two mistresses- start to live a normal life. To do this he reasons he must go back to the slum street. There, his problems began- there, his problems must end, a calculation based on shaky botanical folklore that states wherever a poisonous plant grows, another plant nearby can salve its effects. What began in the slum, will end in the slum.The result of his quest closes the novel in a most unexpected way.
