Jack Harvey - Ian RankinBuy a Copy of this Book
Reeve had come into the dark cool bar after a hot, unprofitable walk in the sunshine; and he'd drunk too many beers too quickly. And he'd got talking to the man on the stool beside him, who introduced himself as Eddie Cantona. Reeve started off by saying there was a football player called Cantona, then had to explain that he meant soccer, and that the player himself was French. It's a Spanish name/ Eddie persisted. And it was too, the way he said it, turning the middle syllable into 'toe' and dragging the whole name out - whereas in England the commentators would try to abbreviate it to two syllables at most. The conversation could only improve from there, and it did, especially when Eddie announced that he was 'between appointments' and owned a car. Reeve had been spending a fortune on cabs and other modes of transport.
