Author’s Note

For the purposes of the story, I have made some small alterations to the working practices and structure of the Metropolitan Police. My hope is that it’s done subtly enough not to cause any offence.

Part One
 

1978

1

It took them an hour to get to the beach, a small, horseshoe-shaped bay on the southern tip of the county. The father had wanted to get there early, to avoid having to fight for a space in the tiny car park, and because someone in their village had told him that there were five spaces – tucked away beneath the slant of a vast, ninety-foot rock face – that stayed in the shade all day. When they arrived and saw there were two spaces still empty, the father drummed out a victory beat on the wheel of the Hillman Avenger and started whistling to himself. His wife, in the passenger seat next to him, broke out into a smile.

‘I think we can safely say you’re happy.’
