It wasn’t an accident,’ Edney broke in. qxd 36 2/7/07 12:00 pm Page 36 Pauline Rowson ‘At this school! ’ The secretary’s fleshy face flushed with indignation. Horton felt a flash of anger. ’ The look the secretary gave him made him feel like the twelve-year-old boy back here being reprimanded. His muscles tensed. ’ She rose from her desk and crossed to the cabinet which she wrenched open with such vigour that it almost made Horton’s eyes water. He practically snatched the file from her. Edney said, ‘Janet, get me the chairman of the board of governors.
Should there be one? ’ Horton could see that. It wasn’t that the grime was inches thick but from what he had gleamed so far, cleanliness was not next to godliness in Langley’s book. Maybe she was an atheist. Though Horton got the impression that Langley didn’t have time to clean being too devoted to carving out her career as a super head. And maybe she hadn’t yet found herself a reliable cleaner. ‘There’s a couple of bottles of white wine in the fridge, one half drunk,’ continued Cantelli. ’ Horton followed Cantelli’s glance, where four bottles nestled in a rack.
Just checking the kitchen. ’ Horton glanced around the lounge seeing something of the disarray he’d witnessed in Langley’s office. Newspapers and magazines were scattered on the coffee table in the centre of the room in front of a low-slung maroon sofa. He flicked through them. There was the Sunday Times from last Sunday, a couple of copies of The Times Educational Supplement and SecEd magazine as well as Sailing Today and Yachts and Yachting, which certainly tied in with the photograph he’d taken from Langley’s office.
