The people at number 3 didn’t indulge in murder, but there was a nasty stabbing of one person and the severe beating of another, so I figure I wasn’t gilding the lily that much. About a fortnight later the police arrested someone there and Stella and I counted 27 officers coming out of the house. There is regular trouble there which is curtain-twitching gold for a nosey person such as myself.
