Enter the Chief Constable
IT WAS JUST SEVEN-FORTY-FIVE WHEN MAJOR
Heatherington's car came flying up the main street of Burchester and rocked to a standstill outside the bank. There were two other cars drawn up at the kerb and a uniformed constable standing at the side entrance, who saluted smartly as the Chief Constable jumped out of his car,
" 'Morning, Symes," nodded Major Heatherington. " Superintendent Turner inside ? "
" Yes, sir," answered Symes; " and Dr. Blake, too, sir,"
The major nodded and strode briskly up to the rear entrance. He was met in the porch by the superintendent and a younger man.
