“Okay, you will have it by Monday is that alright?’

“Thanks Ralph; that would be fine.’

“I also want you to do a little investigation for me.’

“Wow, this seems a bit cloak and dagger my friend; what is going on?’

“I don’t know yet Ralph, but I aim to find out one way or another.


“Who is it you want me to investigate?’

“An Italian called Paulo Conti; can you do it?’

“Yes, of course; what’s this all about Gordon as the soup arrived and the waiter placed a basket with freshly baked bread on the table?’

“Yes hence the drinking episode last night.’

“I see why now Gordon.’

“How long has it been going on?’

“Three years I suspect as the letters were all dated.’

“Three years and you didn’t know?’

“I never had a clue Ralph.’

“Well I certainly didn’t suspect anything; I mean you came over to our house together and you seemed like a normal couple.’

The main course was brought and Ralph cut into the halibut and tasted it.’

This is really good; you should have gone for the fish.’

“This Italian is now living in England Ralph; he talked about opening a restaurant.’

“That makes it easier for me to track him down.’
