one of the cards is from Faye Mansfield, and she asks Sandy if he ever hears from Faye. Sandy says no. When he
is alone Sandy dials Faye Mansfield's phone number. Faye's flatmate answers the phone and says "Hello." When Sandy
realises that it isn't Faye speaking he doesn't say anything. "Hello, Giles. Is that you?" asks Faye's flatmate.

police," says the woman. Sandy puts the phone down.
