LN: No. Helen’s only ever spoken of you in the most positive— RH: I didn’t meet her by accident, the one time I met her. She came to find me. She wanted to speak to me before her appeal, in case she didn’t come back to Geddham. She said what you’ve just said, that it would be natural for me to envy and resent her if she walked free, and she wouldn’t blame me for doing so, but she wanted me to know that my time would come: I’d appeal too, and I’d win. I’d get out. She mentioned your name. Said you’d helped her and you were equally determined to help me.
They nearly shat themselves, but I made a good case and I talked them round. ’ A good case? Do what I say or I’ll put the kibosh on the film – that’s his idea of a good case? He can’t even be bothered to put a convincing gloss on it; that’s how little he values me.

Your value’s just gone up. ’ He spins round to face me. ‘You’re worthless,’ he says emphatically, as if I might have missed the point.

When it isn’t, he holds the phone too far away and sounds like a robot at the far end of a tunnel. ’ Using the strange card to push my hair back from my face, I turn and look out of the window to my left. Through the condensation that no amount of towel-wiping seems to cure, across the tiny courtyard and through the window on the other side, I can see him clearly, hunched over his desk, eyes hidden behind a curtain of messy blond hair.
