The Thursday Murder Club, p. 24

The Waitrose in Turnbridge Wells has a café. Ian Ventham parks his Range Rover in a handicap spot outside, because it’s nearest to the door.

Walking in, he spots Bogdan by the window. Ian owes Bogdan 4000 pounds.

Ian scans the chalkboard, looking for coffee. He asks, “Is all your coffee fair trade?”

“Yes, all fair trade,” says the smiling young woman.

“Shame,” says Ian. He doesn’t want to pay an extra fifteen pence to help someone he’ll never meet, in a country he’ll never go to. “Cup of tea, please. Almond milk.”

Top dialogue! This guy Ian HAS to be the villain.

Stay cool, dear blog readers. Stay cool.
