Chapter One

The orange streetlight bounced from the wet tarmac. 2.30 in the morning. No one about. No traffic, no pedestrians, no wildlife, nothing. The dark car approached the green lights. The driver saw a man coming from the right. He crossed the far lanes to the centre island. The lights turned amber. The driver slowed, coming down from fifth to third. The man glanced at the car and half nodded and set out to cross the road.

In the vehicle, the right designer clad training shoe switched from B to A. Brake to acceleration. The car surged forward. The man heard the engine roar and stopped dead like a fox caught in headlights, frozen in formaldehyde, as if in some sick art exhibition. The man couldn’t believe what he saw. The lights were red; he was sure of it. He tried to move, to jump away. Too late. The bumper smashed into his knees, shattering both. The bonnet crashed into his falling body, breaking ribs, sweeping the guy high into the night. He bounced on the roof, cracking his left arm, somersaulted through the air, and crashed to the pavement.

The driver glanced in the mirrors. An impression of moving black shadows, a black bundle hunched on the pavement, growing ever smaller as the car sped away. The bundle didn’t move.

It would never move again.

DARRITEAU YAWNED LIKE a hippopotamus. Karen glimpsed his tonsils and glanced away.

‘Excuse me,’ mumbled her boss.

‘Don’t mind me,’ she said under her breath.

‘Well, Greenwood?’ he said. ‘Anything new?’

‘Not much. We arrested Gary Jones at Ffrith Caravan Park, but you know that.’

‘Ah yes, Gary Jones,’ the crazy man who had been in and out of borstal and prison for twenty years. Hooligan, drug dealer, burglar, wife beater, scourge of society. At least this time he would be put away for good, but too late for some, and as if Karen was following his train of thought she said: ‘It’s Millie I feel sorry for.’

‘Course,’ said Darriteau, pulling a face, and pondering on how the courts could have handed down one lenient sentence after another.

‘Anyway,’ said Karen, ‘this time it’s open and shut. He’s confessed. His fingerprints are all over the knife.’

‘Mmm,’ said Darriteau, thinking of Millie and her mischievous face, that curly, mousy hair that framed her milk white phizog, those big blue eyes that entranced men so, they certainly entranced Gary Jones. Probably cost her her life. Entrancing partners wasn’t all it was cracked up to be. Millie should still be here, and Darriteau felt responsible for that.

‘Anything else?’ he mumbled, trying hard to sweep the image of her smiling face from his tired brain.

‘Not much. A hit and run on the by-pass.’

‘Oh?’

‘Just waiting for the post mortem.’

Right on cue, Mrs Carney swept into the office. Lobbed a file on the desks.

‘Hit and run?’ she mumbled.

‘Yep,’ said Karen.

Mrs Carney looked down and saw Walter Darriteau nod.

‘Two smashed knees, three broken ribs, broken left arm, and right ankle, but none of that killed him.’

‘So what did?’ asked Karen.

‘Cracked his head on the pavement. No one could survive that. This is the prelim; you’ll have the full report before I go home.’

‘Thank you, Sara,’ mumbled Walter.

Sara Carney pursed her lips, and glanced at the pair of them, bobbed her head and left them to it.

‘So who is he?’ asked Walter.

‘Who was he?’ corrected Karen.

Walter gave his sergeant a
