Book 5 /8

“Well I agree. I just thought that he was planning it for his return: a self-sufficient life style, perhaps.” “I haven’t been this far down in the garden before,” Timonthy admitted as they left the cover of the archway. This section was tidy but desolate. It looked like an area dedicated to fruit and vegetables. There were a few permanent plants but generally the earth […]

Book 5/ Release 7.

They walked back across the top of the hill with the whole town at their feet. The hill was a wide open space of grassland. Timonthy appreciated the fresh air. He had lived too long in a city, he mused. He loved the amusements of the city; the theatres, the shops, and restaurants but concrete and stone was wearing on the soul: not that you […]

Book 5 Release 7.

Then they were at the road between the field and the sea which brought them back to civilisation where there was a caravan park, a small fairground and a slipway to the sea. They turned their back on these delights and made their way up the hill. On the top there was a lonely shack in a field of green. Inside it was a surprisingly […]

“Keep looking unless you’ve finished,” Timonthy said and he went into the study again.  He leant over the open laptop. He was in an e-mail account. There were no personal messages that would have given him a clue to the user’s identity. Paris was right. Someone was doing a lot of shopping and by the look of the e-mails they were mainly garden related orders. […]

May be a coronavirus after effect but a sullen resignation and hopelessness has dropped over me. Whatever I do I seem to be failing in gaining notice in the world. No one reads my blogs. Well, I have no indication that they do apart from a few twitter contacts. Can’t set up monster insights which should give me information about how many people are looking […]

Book 5

He had a quick look in the family bathroom. It was empty as he had expected: just a hand towel and a bottle of soap which looked as if it had been there some time. The other small bedroom was full of gym equipment. He had a fleeting and uninvited vision of Stolid’s thigh bending under exertion again before banishing it quickly. He did not […]

Book 5: Who is in the House?

He checked the address with the one Miss Gregg had told them and they were the same. He put the letter in his inside pocket, inside the notebook with the train journey details. He was trying to be organised. Surely with an address it would not be hard to find Stolid eventually. Then life could return to something like normal. He had a sudden image […]

Book 5 – Mystery Deepens

They got back into the car and carried on their journey in silence as though they were both considering what they had learnt.. The countryside rushed past in the corner of Timonthy’s eye. He concentrated on the road with intensity. He remembered making a similar journey many years before. Although they had started in London they had left the Motorway and travelled cross country just […]

Book 5 It carries on…

and gets exciting in the next instalment. Stay with me. Perhaps I should leave this part out? But it helps to draw out the suspense. *** “That was only Miss Gregg’s opinion,” Paris said. “Do you think she would have thought that, if he hadn’t made an effort to charm her?” Timonthy thought about this. There probably were men who were so naturally good looking […]

Book 5 Further Tastes

“Perhaps I was impatient. I had waited twenty six years already. I suppose that’s enough to make a man impatient.” “Surely you just didn’t sit and wait all those years? Surely you would have gone and found someone else to make you happy?” “No, I wasn’t unhappy all that time. For years I was enjoying myself watching you growing up. It’s only been since your […]
