Not personally. I phone Mr Hamer, the deputy in Bristol Central. ' 'I see,' Jenny said, forming a picture of this cosy arrangement. A deputy coroner in another part of the city, not even troubling to look at the files, taking the word of a retired police officer that no further investigation was required.
