and went to visit Terry.
In his kitchen, they sat and talked about their visits from the

"What do you think happened?" asked Susan.
"To your Dad?"
"Yes. The detectives seem to think he was killed, a robbery maybe.

"You read about these things," said Terry. "But you never think
they will happen to someone you know. Someone so close."

"Why don't you eave it till the morning,'' said DI Bell. "There's

"Let's begin with Susan Coot," said DI Bell, observing Thomp-

"I know."
"Why didn't you tell us that you knew him?"
"I told the PC who was there. But I didn't really know him," said

to us ... co-operate more."
"What do you want me to say? That I was best friends with Terry?"
"Is it true?"
"Of course not. I visited Susan a few times at his house. I said hello
and goodbye to him ifhe was there. That's it."
"Is there anything else you would like to tell us?" asked DS Pearce.
"Anything else you don't think is important?" added DJ Bel.

"I don't know," said DI Bell. "Maybe you've remembered some-
