Looting in Recent Months is a book that can be found in Dishonored.
[Excerpt from a letter found in an empty house at the edge of the Rudshore Financial District]
My husband Malkus was with the Meierson Tobacco Leaf Company, which closed last year during the Month of Clans. He ran the fire boxes and the main curing barn. Malkus always said flue curing made the sweetest leaf. Sickness hits the tobacco men the hardest because of all the smoking.
They ran with a small crew for awhile, but around the time my husband got sick the fires were put out and the tobacco sat rotting.
Somehow the thieves knew and started stripping the place. Later, they moved on to houses, the bastards.
The book can be found in the Dunwall Whiskey Distillery on a shelf near the crank wheel during the mission House of Pleasure. Another copy can be found in Dunwall Tower in the first floor whale oil closet during the mission Return to the Tower.
