I could hear voices as I reached in to close the front door behind us: a brief question from his wife that received an even briefer answer. I didn’t have to wonder if he would tell her what had happened in the kitchen. He would protect her from it, just as he’d allowed her to think that he didn’t mind her brother being around the children. Because part of his problem with Derwent’s questions was that they had hit a nerve. He had been relieved that Barry had refused to come and live with them. Maybe he hadn’t pressed the point with him.
I waited patiently for the explanation. ‘Tremlett pleaded guilty to downloading child pornography three years ago. He was working for a small company in Kent and they found it on his computer. He did nine months. Lost his job, not surprisingly, so he set up on his own once the dust had settled. ’ I frowned. ’ ‘Apparently so. We can ask her about that. ’ ‘Something else to ask her about, but Lambeth CID say not.

Presumably I was supposed to respond with girlish horror. Derwent could try all day and he’d never manage to get a reaction like that from me. I smiled instead, as if the DI had made a witty, brilliant joke, and followed him to the blue tent.
