Example text

Verity found herself digging in her bag for her handkerchief and even Edward found his eyes prickling. When the service ended, it was twenty minutes before they could even think of making their way to the West Door. Just as the crowd about them thinned and Edward had bent to retrieve his hat from underneath his chair, he heard a shrill cry which seemed to come from a woman who had been sitting a few rows in front of them on the extreme right, close to the entrance to the cloisters. Edward walked into the side aisle and saw that a woman was bending over a man slumped in one of the seats.

It was all false – down to the last Etruscan pot on the huge fake-marble fireplace in which an electric fire ‘burned’ fake logs. The floor was laid with imitation Turkish rugs and copies of Old Masters hung on the wall. Verity thought longingly of Edward’s home, Mersham Castle, where nothing was false. Swifts Hill was too much like an hotel – or rather, it suddenly came to her, the interior of the Queen Mary – to be truly beautiful. Its saving grace was the abundance of flowers. Vases of roses, crimson, creamy white and yellow, stood on tables and in the windows scenting the air and giving life to the scene.

Hold on! I’ve just remembered. ’ ‘That’s right and, as it happens, Maud Pitt-Messanger is staying at Swifts Hill. ’ ‘Really, V, you are incorrigible. You want to investigate . ’ ‘We may not like Pride but he is a very competent police officer,’ Edward said sententiously. ‘I have every confidence . ’ Edward pushed aside the breakfast tray and rolled over on Verity. ‘Stop it, you bully. ’ he retorted. They looked at each other with mutual indignation and then Verity was overtaken by the giggles.
