at a bus stop. ANNE approaches her.

ANNE Excuse me.


ANNE Could you tell me how to get to Mitchell Street?

WOMAN Yes. You’re going the wrong way. You need to go straight along here, past the silver balls, turn left, and it’s the second on the right, opposite the Town Hall.

ANNE Thankyou very much.

SHOPKEEPER Over there. Next to the trees.

JOHN Come in!

ANNE enters and looks around.

JOHN (to ANNE) Sorry.

He hangs up and leaps to shake ANNE’s hand.

ANNE Mr Barbour?

JOHN John. Private investigator. You must be Ms Lee. Please sit down.
She does so, hesitantly.

She puts the photo of DAVID on his desk.
