Synopsis
His name was John Larossa. He supplied books to country libraries in New South Wales. He had a heart problem and was on a strict diet. On his return from one of his country tcips his wife, Anna, had found a paper napkin with Delightfully French printed on it. She thought it sounded as if it might be a patisserie. He wasn't supposed to eat cake. I suggested to Anna that perhaps he just called in for a cup of coffee. She told me he wasn't supposed to drink coffee either. John Larossa's library run encompassed the New South Wales south coast as far as Bateman's Bay, then inland to Goulburn, Braidwood and Bowral. I'd set out to follow him, looking forward to a week in the country. I'd hired a car because my own was in the garage getting a new head gasket. My mechanic was in love with the car. If ever I wanted to sell, he'd buy it. I'd been thinking about that a lot lately. I was only keeping it for sentimental reasons—I mean you can't really follow someone for hours on end in a car as conspicuous as a 1958 Daimler.
