Governor Li's predecessor had built a fortress and prison on an island in the middle of Jīn-sè Mèn Bay. Or, rather, he'd started to build one and Li was apparently continuing the work. There weren't any soldiers garrisoned there, so far as Wen could tell; the soldiers were all on the mainland, and likely the happier for it. In fact, at the moment there weren't any workmen either; there didn't seem to be anybody on the entire island save for Wen and several very bored jailers and guards. In a way that ought to have been flattering.
