Episode 5 – Lotus Eaters

The pages being read are near the end of Chapter 5.
It starts about 3 pages from the end.
Look for a long paragraph beginning…..
‘He stood up’.
In that paragraph we start with the sentence beginning
‘ He passed, discreetly buttoning,…..’
and we end about 2 pages later with the one sentence paragraph,
‘ He strolled out of the shop…in his left hand.’
