Example text

My intelligence is the lower-profile kind, intelligence from the sidelines, with no fanfare, no full marks or gold stars. It’s a practical intelligence, the kind that’s useful from day to day. The kind that could save her dear daddy from a life behind bars. Because while I was putting together an alibi for her oh-so-intelligent father, all he could do was sit around noisily blowing his nose. ” Finally! “Of course, darling,” I replied. ” 8 It was tempting to follow Ernesto – I dared not think of the number of cock-ups that man could make in four hours.

That gave me half an hour to do what I needed to do. I went through all of Ernesto’s drawers. This time I found nothing. ” I thought. Then I went through her drawers.

And while Ernesto pursued his monologue with Lali, I began to imagine what I was going to say to him. ” I mean, how would he have answered me?
