Storyline

Marlow recalls the last days of World War II and a train journey with his mother when they visited her family. He again recalls his mother going into the woods and having sex with a man they know, Raymond. When soldiers on the train try to get friendly with her, he lashes out. At the hospital, he has another session with the psychiatrist, Dr. Gibbon, who questions if Marlow really wants to get better. His condition is slightly improved however and he's now able to light his own cigarette. In his re-imagined novel, Marlow and Mark Binney have a row after the investigator questions his source of income. Binney pays him off and tells him to take a hike. When a woman who wants to speak to him urgently is shot, he learns that the sleazy nightclub Binney visited is a front for something sinister. Written by garykmcd
