There was a small bar in a dark corner of the room, where an old, wizened bartender stood for long stretches of time without moving.
He had paid them to do it-he whom the law permitted no other way to gain his freedom, no right to state the facts and plead the truth-the law which delivered his fate, not to objective rules objectively defined, but to the arbitrary mercy of a judge with a wizened face and a look of empty cunning.
There are no more uses of "wizened" in the book.
