Mrs. Johnson, the school crossing guard, is recovering in hospital but in a semi-comatose state and has no recollection as to what has happened. Wexford does learn from her that the unidentified dead teenager had recently asked her for directions to the job center. There are several possible leads. The burglar's girlfriend seems to be living beyond her means: Mrs. Khouri is known as a difficult employer who can't keep her servants and Wexford wonders if the unidentified girl might have worked for her; and then there are the silent phone calls Wexford keeps receiving. Wexford also cannot help but remember the question at the town hall from the young woman who asked what to do if you had a rapist in the family. Somehow, the Chief Inspector knows it all fits together. Written by garykmcd
