I catch Cat’s eye and she gives me a quick nod. ‘OK,’ I agree. ’ I protest. Three Strands raises an eyebrow and I quickly shut up. This is the best offer I’m going to get and I’d better take it, or prepare for a bit of finger-painting on a police file. Cat is getting her purse out. ‘I’ll lend it you,’ she offers. Yeah, too right. It’s her fault I’m here in the first place.

He kept looking across at me from behind the mascara stand and at one point I’d thought he was going to open up his raincoat and give me a flash of the shop’s biggest bargain – I don’t think.
