Thursday December 10
Gary had been glad to spend the rest of Saturday at home. Although he was curious about Cleo’s meeting with the three women from the OAP home, it was partly because it distracted from his own interviews, especially the confrontation with Miss Plimsoll, whom he declared to be a pain, and Brian Crab, who had no entertainment value and seemed to lack the common sense he was probably born with. As for Peregrine Plimsoll: he had been drinking even before embarking on the bistro exploit and was so drunk after imbibing the cooking sherry and brandy in the bistro kitchen that he completely lost control and went on the rampage, which was not to Crab’s liking. He then had the misfortune to be killed and left Crab to carry the whole can. Cleo told him to forget it all till Monday. They had Vera to keep up with, not to mention a round robin hockey tournament next day. That would – Gary claimed – make crime a refuge in times of trouble, especially if Miss Plimsoll officiated.
