In lying, Baba contradicted his beliefs; as he had told Amir “There is only one sin….. that is theft” (Hosseini 18). Baba, a thief himself, thought that his lies were going to help only him, and that they were not going to influence anybody’s relationship. He was wrong.

Realizing the killer who was handed a better childhood turned into a ruthless killer leads the audience into blaming Dick completely for his actions as he has nothing to fall back on as a scapegoat. Perry can be said to have a sense of level headedness about him, although not enough to stop the murder altogether.
