The maniac had poured bleach in. ’ Gilmore’s head shot up. ’ asked Gilmore. ‘Of course I didn’t recognize it. ’ Gilmore flushed. It would almost be worth his job to smack the smug bastard one in the mouth. ’ ‘It was obviously disguised. Very soft, almost a whisper. ’ ‘Things came through the post - newspaper cuttings, obituaries of people called Compton, or reports of killings or sudden deaths with the victim’s name crossed out and our name written in.

He raised his eyebrows to the ceiling as Gilmore entered, inviting him to share his disgust at the treatment meted out to rate-paying members of the public. ‘My car’s been pinched. They won’t accept details over the phone - that’s too bloody easy. ’ A balding, uniformed sergeant with a mournful face came in. This was Bill Wells, pushing forty, tired and fed up. Today should have been his rest day. ‘Right, Mr Wilkins. ’ The sergeant shrugged.

Right, you sod. Mullett wants the dirt on you, I’ll find it for him. With a curt nod at Duffy, he followed the inspector out. The sobbing from the kitchen was much softer, weaker. The mother had cried herself to exhaustion. Outside in the car they watched as a hearse pulled up to collect the body for the post-mortem.
