The murder scene. And I am positive, now, that the arm holding the knife could belong to any of the girls. Everyone wants it to be Mel. Little wonder she ran off into the night. The video ended at long last with the BBC News. Grim prognostications of success for European neo-fascist groups in the forthcoming Euro-elections. At this point Jim snapped off the TV and turned to face me. I was glad at that time that I hadn’t abandoned my position by the door, despite the 37 inevitable strain that standing for long periods inflicts on my back, which was injured on disembarking from a fishing-boat on a recent visit to St Ronan’s.
It is almost too painful for me at this point to try and describe Chris Bradley—for this was his name—as he told me on that bright day in what I now see as the house of ill fortune that is 109 Bandesbury Road. In my line of business—old houses and their inhabitants, revenants and inheritors—one soon develops a sixth sense.

I showed, I hoped, that I had no intention of being disturbed while I performed these last rites for a friend who had been a proud housewife—and whose mental state had deteriorated rapidly subsequent to the death of her husband and mother.
