No, not me, Inspector.

l jacked that lot in - it's a...'s a mug's game, isn't it?

Well, I mean, there's no point... I've got the job...

- ...and the business.

- How is business?

Can't complain.

ls, er... he with you..?

Never saw him in my life before.

Got a warrant, lnspector?

What? For a social call?

This bloke's a better actor

than Mickey Mouse.

Well, er...

...I'll be seein' yer, Jack.


Scotland Yard here.


- Your call on number three.

- Oh, thanks.

Right, she's already made three

insurance claims.

Get onto Bedford, see ifthey've

got anything on her.

Right you are, guv'nor.

George. Go carefully, eh?

Remember who her father is.

- Well?

- Nothing.

- Still think Jack's the driver?

- That's my best guess.

This is the Squad, Inspector Langdon.

We deal in evidence and

arrests, not guesses.

l think you're right about him.

He's our man - but we've got to...

...get evidence and we've got

to make it stick.

You've got to make it stick!

Yes, sir.

That was a close one

yesterday, love.


Did you see the papers?

- Eighty-five thousand quid?

- Nah.

Not a penny over seventy-five...

...and that's trade valuation.

Not what we got.

Yeah... they're all at it.

- Where's Paul?

- He'll be here.

l've had the law round.

That was quick! Who was it?




Jack's had callers. The Squad.

Yeah. Langdon... a try-on.

Does he know anything?

- What? Him?

- Does he know anything?

Of course not!

Well, let's keep it that way.

Here's how it is, then.

We've got the capital now

for the investment.

We all agree to go ahead?

- Yep.

- Yeah.

Well, why don't we share out in

the usual way? I mean...

...we're doing all right.

l want us to do better, Frank.
