Maxim confesses the truth to the narrator: his marriage to Rebecca was a facade, and he despised her so much that he murdered her in a fit of rage. In the end, Maxim realized that Rebecca manipulated him into killing her so that she would not have to die slowly of cancer. Maxim tells the narrator that Rebecca did not die in a boating accident: he shot her in a fit of rage and then put her body in the cabin of the boat before sinking it. He reveals that he never loved Rebecca, and their marriage was nothing more than a sham. The narrator is overjoyed at this news and finally feels assured of Maxim’s love.
