Peter’s Unexpected Evening of Entertainment.

Stolid excused himself and left the room at this point. Peter watched him with an enigmatic look on his face. Stolid made him sad as well as the contemplation of his work, Timonthy realised. It was typical of human nature that a man who had good health, probably excessive wealth, a beautiful property, a wife and son who appeared to love him and something to […]

Was it the Good Stuff?

He produced a jug from under the table with a quick look to make sure no-one was looking. Timonthy finished the water in his stoneware tankard and pushed it forwards next to Gerard’s.

Book Five / Ext. 21

“Yes I will,” he promised. “And give it back to them after?” There was a definite tone in her voice that suggested she thought this would be foolish. “Well,” he thought about it, “as far as we know, this is what Stolid arranged, to look after his garden and house.

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 […]
