From The Rise
The Scouser said he used a meat-delivery van as his cover so he'd only drop at suitable places, restaurants or big pubs that serve food. No, the only place round here that fits the description is The Rise club.
Okay. The club makes sense as a dropping point. But why would Roper leave his money in there and not in own his office? He doesn't own the club.
Albert's in his pocket and it puts some distance between him and his money in case he ever gets his collar felt.
I suppose his firm looks after the club so he thinks it's safe there as in his own office.
