Australia is one of the highest-ranking parent-child abduction hotspots in the world.  The Child Snatchers takes an investigative look at some of Australia’s more notorious child-abduction cases. Each story is deeply personal, highly complex and frighteningly true. Were they a desperate act of protection or a despicable act of revenge?

The Child Snatchers explores the often bitter nature of separation and divorce, and our heavy reliance on the overburdened Australian Family Law system. It brings you the heartfelt, true accounts of left-behind parents and the children they longed for. Some are heart-warming, successful recoveries; others may never see their children again. All leave you questioning everything you thought you knew.

About the Author

Jasmin Newman is an educator, mediator and coach who has been an active proponent in the reform family law system since 2013. Her interest in family court matters arose when, through her work, she found herself listening to heart-wrenching stories of parental alienation and abduction, all of which involved complex family court decisions. Jasmin immersed in herself in understanding the history of Australian family law and the interested political lobby groups which shaped its legislation. With neither the mothers’ or fathers’ groups happy with outcomes, the system was failing everyone, but none more so than the children.

This raised deep questions on the efficacy of family law in parenting disputes and the public’s over-reliance on using it. How could legislation, which in theory was designed for child protection, result in such catastrophic outcomes?

With a pragmatic, child-focused approach, Jasmin helps parents navigate divorce and separation through her parenting after separation course and mediation business.  She remains a dedicated advocate for a less adversarial family separation process.

Excerpt from the Book

“By talking to dozens of parents, reading countless stories and watching associated documentaries, the standout observation is that the left-behind parent is always the one who was willing to co-parent. Even after abduction recovery, their strongest desire was to facilitate a relationship with the other parent so the children could have as normal upbringing as possible. 

When I learned of the mothers fighting for their children in Islamic countries, I felt sure I would be hearing stories of hopelessness. My experience was the opposite. These women were respected for choosing to follow the appropriate legal path of Sharia family court and were richly rewarded with custody for doing so. Their children were allowed to return to the country of their birth, the people they know and love and a culture they were intended to be raised in. Then most satisfying of all, they were not traumatised twice in order to facilitate their repatriation. 

In dire situations where parents use recovery agents, the least damaging approach is one of negotiations. Where that’s not possible, reuniting the children with their left-behind parents and allowing them to come willingly causes the least stress on the child. If, and only if the agent has done their due diligence on the alleged left-behind parent. By far the worst, most traumatic approach is when children are snatched away from loving family members suddenly – especially by people they do not know.”

This ground-breaking book exposes a taboo aspect of Holocaust history;   the sexual abuse of children. Children were sexually assaulted in ghettos, camps, on transit trains, while in hiding, and even when sent to supposed safety outside Europe.  The Nazi’s genocidal brutality facilitated the abuse of children, in addition to targeting them for murder. In addition, children were sexually assaulted by some rescuers and peers who took advantage of their vulnerability. After the war, they were again betrayed by those who discounted their experiences, and by Holocaust scholars who refuse to acknowledge their stories or give credence to their memories.

About the Author:

Dr Beverley Chalmers has dedicated her life to studying women’s and children’s experiences in difficult social, political, economic and religious settings.  She has held professorial appointments in Faculties of both Medical and Social Sciences and served for decades as a maternal and child health consultant to numerous United Nations and other global health agencies.  Her inter-disciplinary focus and extensive international experience provide a unique perspective on the Nazi era and on the neglected issue of child abuse in the Holocaust.
In 2015, Bev’s book “Birth, Sex and Abuse: Women’s Voices Under Nazi Rule” was awarded the USA National Jewish Book Award, the Canadian Vine Award for Jewish Literature, a CHOICE ‘Outstanding Academic Title’ Award, and a Canadian Jewish Literary Award. She has two doctoral degrees: a Doctorate of Science in Medicine (DSc (Med)) and a PhD in Psychology.

Reviews of “Betrayed:  Child Sex Abuse in the Holocaust”:

“Sexual abuse was one of the many horrors that some children were forced to endure during the Holocaust. But their stories deserve to be told.

‘Betrayed’ is a well-written and researched, albeit difficult, read that gives these victims a voice to be heard.”

(Dr Tessa Chelouche M.D, Unesco Chair of Bioethics, Haifa)

“With a rare combination of humane empathy and scholarly criticism, Beverley Chalmers delves into a disturbingly difficult subject: the sexual abuse of children during World War II. Her research sheds light on the various forms of child abuse, and undermines conventional categorization patterns. For example, Chalmers shows that children were sexually abused not only by people related to the occupying forces or by hostile strangers, but also by others, including some of their very protectors. Chalmers puts the children and their suffering in the center and makes their voices – their cries – heard; by doing so, she creates a wider awareness of this dreadful phenomenon, awareness that is crucial to anyone who wishes to build a better world for our children.”

(Noam Rachmilevitch, archivist at the Ghetto Fighter’s House, Israel)

Once in answer to the question, “What was most likely to blow a government off course?” Harold Macmillan is said to have replied, “Events, dear boy, events.”

Two striking examples show how serious and unintended consequences can flow from seemingly unconnected events.

In 1880, Lady Ampthill, the wife of the British Ambassador in Berlin took Crown Prince Wilhelm sculling. He jumped straight into the boat and capsized it, but could not swim. Lady Ampthill saved him. He later became Kaiser Wilhelm II and took Germany into the First World War.  If he had drowned, would the War have occurred?

Ruth Ellis was the last person to be hanged for murder.  She had an unremarkable affair with David Blakely.  It ended in 1955.  She shot him dead on the public highway with five bullets from a revolver. She shot the sixth bullet after he was dead deliberately into the ground which caused a passer-by to be very slightly injured from a ricochet. She was sentenced to death.  Petitions for reprieve were rejected.  She was duly hanged.  The Home Secretary explained “We cannot have people shooting off firearms in the street — she not only killed Blakely but injured a passer-by. I was determined that people could use the streets without fearing a bullet.”  If only she had fired the sixth bullet into Blakely’s dead body, she would almost certainly have been reprieved.

Chance is indeed a fine thing.

The aphrodisiac of power is what causes politicians and others in high places to indulge in secret risk taking, usually involving sex. They have a craving for applause and recognition. They have an astonishing belief in their own good luck in remaining undiscovered. At the same time, they enjoy the excitement of what Oscar Wilde described as “Feasting with Panthers.” The risks they take involve danger and secrecy and are all a potent mix of spice and drug. Lloyd George, Gladstone Asquith, Disraeli and Dilke all indulged.

Newspaper magnates like the Harmsworths and Beaverbrook craved a different power. It was to use their papers to exercise control over politicians and seek to dictate policy. Criminals like Bottomley and Maundv Gregory fed on the gullibility of investors to amass fortunes. David Owen (former Foreign Secretary) described it as the “Hubris Syndrome” namely a concern with image, excessive confidence in their own judgements and exaggerated self-belief, bordering on a sense of omnipotence.

“No Tall Heels to Tango” by Howard Jackson published by Red Rattle Books

‘IT DOES NOT MATTER WHO IS IN POWER. WE HAVE TRIED EVERYTHING. NONE OF IT WORKS’

About the Book: 

It is May 2018 and below the equator the summer is over. Argentina is in the middle of another economic crisis and the Government is being given budgetary warnings by the International Monetary Fund. Inflation is high and the value of the Argentinean peso is falling. One Englishman returns to South America after an absence of ten years.

NO TALL HEELS TO TANGO remembers a 3000 mile journey made by a seventy year old lone traveller around a troubled Argentina. He visits Buenos Aires, wanders south to Patagonia and then travels north to the towns below the Andes. The Englishman meets people who want to talk about politics and football. Sometimes, though, they remember high heels and the tango and wonder whatever happened.

“Shadow of Guilt” by Barbara Anne Machin is published

A collection of stories reflecting human strengths & frailties

About the Book: 

This is a new collection of stories from Barbara Anne Machin, here depicting our human frailties and the cord of life that at times holds people together and at times drives them apart.  Perhaps we can overcome, perhaps we can’t, but we all take this journey of love, anger and sometimes separation, often finding ourselves back where we began…. this is the circle of life.  

About the Author:

Barbara Anne Machin was born in 1940 and is the youngest of eight children. She is married and has one son, and recently celebrated her diamond wedding anniversary. She has always been interested in writing but has never attempted to publish before. A friend and her husband encouraged Barbara to send her trilogy of stories to a publisher. She writes more for a hobby and has worked all her life and still works part-time.  She has held many managerial positions in large companies and does not like to be idle.

Excerpt from the Book: 

“I don’t believe in love, Mr Loring, it only brings heartache,” she replied cynically.  Clare felt a deep pain in her chest.  Julie had died in vain and all hope of ever liking this man had vanished with his callous words.

“Well, now, we have agreed on a course of action I will call tomorrow and bring someone to babysit while we shop for a ring and some necessary items.”  Looking down at her slacks, he added, “I can’t have my bridge looking like a boy on our wedding day.”

Clare cut short her retort as he wagged his finger and walked slowly towards her.  She felt like a rabbit caught in a trap and could neither move nor drag her gaze from his face as he reached and pulled her onto her feet.  She didn’t struggle as he pulled her to him.

Looking into her eyes, he murmured, “If we are going to be married, we might as well act as if we are happy about it.”  He gripped her under her chin and kissed her with such passion it sent her senses reeling.  For one short moment she tried to fight her feelings then found herself responding to his caresses.  Clare felt him tremble, then abruptly he let her go.

“Would you like me to stay for a while so you could have a rest?” he said, lifting an eyebrow.  “I can listen out for Julian.”

“I have managed for the last two months,” Clare said sarcastically.  “I’m sure I can manage a little longer.”

Adrian took her by surprise and brushed his lips once more across hers.

“As you wish.  Until tomorrow, 10 o’clock sharp.”

He smiled mockingly as Clare dragged her hand across her mouth as if to wipe away any track of his kiss.”

“Burred Screws” by C. T. Lee published by New Generation Publishing

Extraordinary & riveting stories about real-life relationships

About the Book:

This book tells no tales; it speaks someone’s mind.

None of it can be helped.

None of it can be undone.

Some of it may be true.

This is a short book about relationships real or imagined and the cost of their distractions. Rest assured that every word is caked with autobiographical detail or other fantasies.

A cacophony of joy and misery awaits.

Excerpt from the book:

“And we’re back in the room. The walls change their material and geography gradually, but the confinement is unyielding. It’s a petrified voyage from concreted greenfield to polluted Parisian goldfish bowl, to life above a rural slurry tank and then a cramped, messy London flat I do not own or share.

All attention on the scar, once more: I woke up with an urge to cut my face this morning, just a line here or there. The itchy pains and weeping wound that come with it put me off. I hate myself and the situation I’m in. Still, I never looked tough enough to be left in peace, never looked like I’d fight for it with all of my energy. Perhaps I should acquaint some people with some harsh facts, get my scars the easy way and have the satisfaction of earning them publicly. I’m fit enough to do it, to hold my own, but then what? The scar-face look is hardly going to boost my job prospects, get me into some halfway decent office post. No, this is wrong: I won’t live long enough for such things to matter. I have enough to involve myself with until I can earn my title and carry the scars remotely through some obscure, critical analysis of another fool’s pain and suffering.

I know why I feel this way: I should’ve dropped her when I realised I didn’t have a certain future. I’m not angry at her; I’m selfish and stupid.”

An enthralling chronicle of two young men – one white, one black – in apartheid South Africa

About the Book

The destinies of two young men in apartheid South Africa become inexorably intertwined in their pursuit of what is right.

Zak Ginsberg is shaped by his parents’ sad histories. Awareness of the Second World War, his Jewishness and the status of the black population slowly infiltrate his consciousness.

Mpande Gumede has spent an idyllic childhood in rustic Zululand. At high school, he realises for the first time, that he is a second-class citizen.

Zak studies the art of saving lives. Mpande pursues the craft of destroying lives. Both are drawn into the anti-apartheid struggle. The one acts because his ancestors were victims, the other because he himself is a victim.

Newspaper and Amazon reviews: 

The Jerusalem Post

”The novel’s epic proportions, sharp political context and Hoffmann’s keen eye for detail make for an engrossing and enlightening read.”

The Jerusalem Report

”Hoffmann…. is a fine writer….

Be warned: This is the kind of book that might cause to you to smile or even laugh as you read it, but it will ultimately make you cry. Once you start reading it, though, you may not be able to put it down.”

Amazon

”A splendid book which juxtaposes the needs of conscience and one’s place in society.”

”A rare gem fusing literary genres….

(It) does not take us down the beaten path and feed us the same clichés we’ve heard before. Here, novel insights are presented in a beautiful, elegiac language, and a profoundly gripping and genuinely unique ending turns everything on its head.And throughout all of it, heartwarming humor bubbles beneath the surface, making the pain of the characters just a little less terrible to endure…..

I would recommend it to anyone who seeks something more from a novel than just a quick thrill, and who would like to be challenged, emotionally as well as intellectually.”

”A Wonderful Historical Fiction Dealing WithAnti-Apartheid Activism in South Africa”

”Jack Hoffmann has produced a superbly written novel…

This is a subtle, thoughtful work that deserves a wide readership.”

”Riveting….This is a skillfully-written book about two young men in South Africa as their paths cross in pursuit of what is racial equality.”

An account of a manorial estate in Medieval England

Today, in times of fading borders and challenged national identity, this book celebrates a treasured feature of English Heritage

About the Book

Domestic rebellions and foreign wars, the king’s rule, murder, traitors and execution, crippling debt, arranged marriages of young heirs and heiresses, avoidance of taxes, medieval decrees of inheritance, the black death and famine.  All that and more can be found in a fascinating new book based on the meticulous research of exceptional author Murray Johnston.

While his first book, The Watford Knight’s Fee, will satisfy serious students and enthusiasts of medieval English history, his second opens the door to everyone.  A time machine takes the reader along a fascinating and sometimes wobbly journey with the lords of the manor through 700 years – including, unique in English history, one family for 500 years.

Welcome to the world of manors in medieval England!

For more details about this book, see:  https://www.giveamanor.com

Excerpt

Eustace III: The Rebel

In his later years, King John saw a transition of the Watford manor to Eustace III. His father died well-advanced in years, so Eustace III was no youngster, long since ‘of age’. Although not destined to be lord of Watford for long, Eustace lived through one of the most tumultuous times in English history – the First Baron’s War and the Magna Carta…

John de Ardern, brother of Eustace III, was disappointed to find that the 7 virgates in Watford given to him in his father’s lifetime were mortgaged. His father, Eustace II, had given John’s inheritance as security for a loan from the Jews of Northampton. Eustace II paid 70 shillings annually to the king’s exchequer for the debt, and now the same obligation lay on John’s shoulders. Unfortunately, like his father he was short of cash. Instead, John provided a horse for the king’s use as substitute for his father’s annual payment of 70s, and so the king granted John his lands…

The First Barons War commenced when the barons attacked but failed to take Northampton Castle. Nonetheless, they proceeded to successfully take London. King John was forced to attach his great seal to the Magna Carta in June 1215. But John set aside the Great Charter and the war with the barons continued. Many of the barons, including supporters such as Eustace de Watford, were cast adrift by the king due to their allegiance to the rebel cause.”

About the Author

Murray Johnston is the author of several books on family history venturing as far back as the 16th century. Rediscovering medieval places, events and people became an inseparable part of his life. Exploring connections to an ancient English parish introduced him to the medieval world of manors and the rise and decline of one in particular through seven centuries. Living the adventure of researching more than a thousand documents found in England’s greatest archival institutions gave Murray the basis for his latest book: Give a Manor Take a Manor.

About the Book

International Political & Environmental Folly – Edition 7 [issued in early 2019] was started after a two year stint in USA & Canada was completed in 1959.

This publication shows that political organisations are taking too much money from the public and using it incorrectly. The politicians blame the banks for the same reason but it is thought that both are to blame.

The politicians appear to be taking the global warming threat seriously but do not seem to recognise the full story since the physicists who advise the Government appear to have gotten the issue wrong too.

This is a complex matter which is explained in the book entitled above. It is serious matter because eventually & SOON the central black hole of our galaxy, the Milky Way, which has been taking up space matter for millions of years will explode because the temperature and pressure rise with the take up till the system melts…. followed a few milliseconds later by a nuclear explosion.  This will undo the mechanism that holds our galaxy together and chaos will reign, killing all Earth bound life unless….

The book at Edition 7 goes on to explain how to shift the solar system out of ‘OUR GALAXY’ thereby saving the LIFE STOCK of Mother Earth. Of course, that assumes the task is completed before the predicted event takes place.

The author gave up the impossible task of warning Central Government
of the situation that was being built up by local authorities & Central Government in 2007 and bought a property in the Caribbean.  It was then he decided to carry out the seemingly impossible task of getting enough information to halt the ‘progress’ of local authority & Central Government.

This matter was solved by mentally returning to the UK research station that employed the writer as a scientist in charge of the Physics Electronic Section where coating of plastic bodies with a ‘metal skin’ was discussed. Although the BH termination is somewhat different, the writer solved the case of BH’s behaviour from the result of that recalled investigation, and the book developed from that standpoint. The book warns that a serious matter exists unless action is promptly taken.

About the Author

Born in 1925, the author served in The Royal Navy and was loaned to the Royal Canadian Navy during WW2. He and his wife Joan (who has now passed on) have three daughters.  Following demobilization from the Royal Navy, the author studied mathematics, physics, and electronics which were put to use in the USA and Canada. Returning to England, the author settled in Hertfordshire and was employed in research, military, medical, industrial electronics, nucleonics, and avionics. On retiring, the author relocated to Dorset where he obtained his pilot’s license and later his own Cessna Aircraft for recreational use. He also indulged in another hobby, horology. Later still, an attempt to relocate to his Caribbean retreat ended due to ill health. The author underwent spinal surgery in January 2011 and hopes to renew his recreational flying in due course.

This book has a timely message as the UK attempts to struggle out of the chaos of Brexit. It asks the question, should the majority carry the vote? If the answer to that question is yes then we have a lot to consider. Do our leaders always serve us well? Have they got our interests before their own? Should we just follow like sheep? The author asks some searching questions and finds some disturbing answers. This is a book that needs to be read – before it is too late.

Excerpt

“When I started to write this, the thought that was the uppermost in my mind is how our leaders are misleading us all. As I said right at the beginning, we have been guilty in the past of trusting blindly the leaders and those in authority over us, just because they are in the position they are in. Now when we see what is happening in the UK, in America and in many other places in the world, perhaps we realise that if we choose a blind man to lead us, then our world will turn into darkness. Do we really know what people are thinking? Do we really know that we’re not being fed poison drip by drip, so that our hearts and minds are changed?

This is not a time for leaders who have selfish ambitions. What we need in our lives are servant leaders, not those who place themselves in power over us as lords. There is only one Lord, and that is the Lord God, and with him caring for us, there is no need for us to follow blindly in ways that may not be good for us. God has a plan for you, and he will be the one who will guide your destiny if you trust in him. You can be very much less certain of what will happen to you if you put your trust in human beings.

Now it is time for us to take back the power to ourselves. I’m not suggesting that we use violence to take over the reins of power. With God as our Guide, we need to find a way to change the world in a peaceful and quiet way, and a way that is validated by goodness, fairness, and the desire to have all people treated equally. A movement has started in the area of climate change, where frequent demonstrations, many including children taking the day off school, to make a difference in the world that they will inherit. This is the kind of change that we need, and we also need to do what we know is good for us, and that is aligned with integrity on Christ-like grounds.”

Eric has a miserable childhood in a violent, drunken family in a tough London housing estate. He compensates by looking for perfection. For him, this means worldly success in a diplomatic career as far away from his childhood as possible. His single-minded ambition comes at a price. It makes him leave his childhood sweetheart Katie behind, since he knows that she can’t keep up with him. Their ways part. Eric marries an upper-class woman and becomes an Ambassador. However, Katie and he never quite lose touch. After his wife’s death Eric and Katie come together again. There is action and pace, fun and sadness, a huge variety of life experiences and a sense of providence and redemption.

Excerpt

“Katie cried herself to sleep. The next morning she woke up with a heavy head and a terrible anguish. The worst had happened to her. Eric did not want her. He was not going to marry her. She felt as if the floor had fallen from under her feet. She could not fathom it. He was not going to marry her because it would make her unhappy. That just wasn’t true. She might not have understood everything, but as she knew she made him happy, of course happiness would have followed in a marriage. She would not have demanded anything; she was content for him to rule the roost. He knew better anyhow.

There had to be some hidden reason for him not to want to marry her. She knew and felt that he loved her. Was it perhaps something connected to those deep, dark moods of which she had the odd glimpse on the occasions when he had got drunk in her company? The depth of those dark feelings had frightened her. She realised that she knew only patches of his character and what drove him on.

To the world he was jolly and superficial. What had he wanted? Now that she thought about it, Katie remembered how at the beginning he had tried to interest her in history, art and music, but seeing that she did not have the same enthusiasm, he had given up on that. He had tried to teach her card games, but she had no card sense, and it had had to be given up.”

New Releases

A cultural book, which tells the story about the relationship between two best friends in a struggle for survival in the forest, written in both English and Portuguese

 

 

About the Book:

 The Hunger in the Forest series of books represents a culture and way of life that children may not be familiar with. This first story on the series, Fuuuurrrrr n’bum, teaches important life lessons to children whilst telling them that life is not all roses and a happy ending, but if you learn certain things like ‘listening & following instructions’, then you’ll do great in life.

 

 

About the Author:

Rosa Brandao is of African descent.  Being an African is one of the richest benefits as a black woman in society. This gave Rosa the best childhood she could ever imagine.  Her imagination as a child has empowered her to create this magical world that she is so eager to share with everyone and especially with her son; the inspiration that made it all possible.

5.0 out of 5 stars

Excellent children’s story from African cultural written in both English and Portuguese

31 May 2019 – Published on Amazon.co.uk

“I read this children’s book to my two children, and they loved it! There is a hunger in the forest, and the wolf, rabbit and others need to be creative and crafty in order to fill their bellies.

This story reminded me of the Grimm Brothers’ tales which are more realistic than Disney’s fairy tales in teaching important life lessons to children, painting a picture of the real world that can often be difficult and challenging, but if you listen properly, pay attention to detail, focus on what you want to achieve and reach for it, and so on, you’re likely to be more successful in navigating your way through life.

I also like the fact that this story clearly draws from Portuguese culture, as the author (Rosa) says that she was told this story when she was a child, and she wants to share it more widely as the book is cleverly written both in English and in Portuguese, and beautifully illustrated with rich, vibrant colours, reflecting the African cultural values and experiences which imbue this story.”

About the Book:

Designed to help everyone, from complete beginners to those who want to take their next steps in the world of investing and trading, this book can help you learn and more importantly understand how to create wealth using stable financial assets like shares.

 

 

Excerpt from the book:

 “Somewhere in the middle of 2016, my son Michael, having just finished his zoology degree, said to me ‘so what’s all this share trading about then?’

Well, Michael, this is our answer!

In order to find out and answer that basic question, Michael and I have been on a year-long journey to discover what we can learn about share investing and trading and this is the result – a strategy and guidebook for anyone to follow in order to achieve a steady 10% return on small amounts of money which, if properly invested, will create financial freedom for most people and most families over time.

Our learning journey has been taken together as a mum and son – we’ve attended all courses together for instance and throughout the writings we have used I/we interchangeably.  Sometimes the I is Michael and sometimes it’s me.

We’ve also used £ and $ fairly indiscriminately.  These strategies work wherever you are and whatever your local currency might be and we invest in both the USA and UK for instance – but we could invest anywhere in the world from our desk at home.  We’ve identified a couple of share brokers who between them cover more or less the entire globe – so again, it doesn’t matter where you live or what currency you start with – these strategies are entirely possible for you!”

An eclectic and skilfully-written series of absorbing tales

 

About the Book:

Life thwarts Floyd’s goals sooner or later. A rival challenges his new invention. His buried gold is confiscated by HM Treasury. He is wrongly charged with arson. He is unfairly dismissed. He campaigns to change part of English punctuation, yet inadvertently continues to use it afterwards. Helping a friend lands him in hospital. What has he done to deserve all this?

Yet he is resourceful in dealing with his adverse situations, whether personal or confronting the might of the state. Other characters must eat humble pie to stay afloat. College lecturer Ed Beck forsakes his principles. And Matt abandons his business dreams to preserve an old friendship.

 

Excerpt from the book:

“He was in town about to make arrangements to obtain a basket of European currencies: German marks, Swiss francs, Italian lire, French francs and Dutch guilders.

‘Excuse me sir,’ said a man in a raincoat, ‘police.’ He and his colleague produced a badge.

‘What’s this about?’

‘Where were you last Thursday night, around 11.00 p.m.?’

‘I don’t have to answer this!’

‘We can do this down at the station if you like.’

 

The detective offered Floyd a cigarette, which he refused.

‘So,’ asked the detective. ‘Where were you last Thursday night, around 11.00 p.m.?’

‘At the Cloak and Dagger, having a drink.’

‘On your own?’

‘No, with a work colleague.’

‘Where do you work?’

‘Not working at the moment. I’m due to go on an Inter-rail trip around Europe quite soon.’

‘Where did you last work?’

‘Frixton library.’

The detective and his colleague exchanged glances.

‘Who was the work colleague you were with at the Cloak and Dagger?’

‘Jack Mills,’ said Floyd automatically. It was not until a few minutes later that he remembered what Jack had told him about grassing. But what had Jack done, if anything?”
