Sadly, it had exactly the opposite result. ' Jazz nodded. That made sense. By the time Mo had returned from another trip to the toilet, Jazz was so engrossed in Gilbert's story that the distant sound of female screams from outside the church made no impact on her. Harry Noble had arrived.

It made her feel she knew him somehow. He put his hand on the door handle, turned round to the room and spoke in a deep, clear, velvety voice.
