TOP OF THE SHOP
The sun shone down on that glorious, typically English, high summer afternoon. As he swung through the gates of his ten-bedroomed country mansion and onto its carefully maintained gravel drive Martin Harrison thought, as he so often did, that the powerful rumble from the V8 heart of his convertible Ferrari was ideally suited to that particular moment: after all, he could hear it so much better with the top down.
At home, just a quarter of a mile up the drive, his wife would be waiting for him. Martin's wife was quite a bit younger than him, at just 31 to his 52, and an attractive woman. He, it has to be said, was rarely the object of second glances but that wasn't too surprising:men of his age carrying too much weight and too little hair aren't often appealing.
