Episode 9

Harriet Walter reads Episode Nine of a dark and mysterious thriller by Sian Busby. DDI Cooper wants to find the spiv called Dennis.

Cooper is distracted temporarily from the case by a raid on a packaging factory. One of the apprehended villains though happens to be in possession of something that he hopes may lead him to the spiv that Evelyn said Lillian went off with. So next on his list of people to talk to is a barber called Manny Cohen, who it's said can fence anything from a cigarette to an elephant.

Meanwhile, Dennis has had one of his dreams again - the one that always ended with him flying through the air with the feeling that the bit that of his brain that had been blasted out of him in the war, was gone forever.

A Commonplace Killing by Sian Busby is abridged by Lauris Morgan Griffiths and produced by Sarah Langan.
