I sized up the old man, who was picking up scraps of paper and lobbing them with precision into a wheeled refuse bin. “An old soldier. He limps. He was wounded. His large body is mounted upon spindly legs. Probably spent a great deal of time in a military hospital recovering from his wounds. Not an officer—he doesn’t have the bearing. Infantry, I should say. ” Montague bit the corner of his lip and gave me half a wink. ” he said. “Now then,” he went on, pointing with his chin towards the woman sitting alone on the park bench closest to the water.
Please stop! Please pull over,” I called out. “I think I dropped my phone, back there, when I fell over. ” “Blimey. Righto. ” The taxi skidded to a halt and the moment I heard the doors unlock I grabbed the door handle and was out and onto the pavement and off like the proverbial rabbit. “Thank you,” I called over my shoulder. But I hadn’t gone ten feet when I stopped dead and spun slowly around. “No, no, wait a minute. ” I returned to the taxi and bent down to be at eye-level with the driver. He lowered the window.

And I settled back in my seat, let out an audible sigh of relief, and then reached for my mobile telephone.
