112 EXT. ST. JAMES’S CLOSE. LATER THAT NIGHT.

Lindsay’s car (blue lights off now) pulls up in a quiet,

middle-class neighbourhood.

Lindsay, Wallis and Butler get out. An unmarked vehicle is

parked on the drive of a detached new-build house -- all the

house lights are out, it looks deserted.

They exchange looks. Lindsay is puzzled, not sure what to

make of the deserted house.

From the shadows, suddenly DET SGT JAYNE AKERS (early 30s)

advances towards Lindsay.

AKERS:

DS Akers. Thanks for stepping in,

ma’am. Let’s keep this between us

for now.

Akers throws a look to Wallis and Butler. Lindsay moves into

the shadows with Akers, leaving them behind. They talk in

murmurs. Wallis and Butler take a keen interest.

AKERS:

I need a safe and available

destination asap.

LINDSAY:

4th Street Station’s 15 minutes. We

can move him there till you receive

further orders.

AKERS:

Straight into town?

LINDSAY:

I’d take the back roads.

AKERS:

(Beat. Nods.)

You lead.

LINDSAY:

What?

Ma’am, please -
