Cadel clicked his tongue and shook his head. As he closed the ‘Mindbenders’ file, his glance strayed to the message he’d scrawled on one of Hazel’s Post-it notes. Crosswords, acrostics, diagnostics, enigmas, labyrinths . . C-a-d-e-l. There it was. A double acrostic. Another message hidden in the first.

After Cadel had dropped his black bin near the laundry, he turned to find a flushed Mace looming over him. ‘You did it,’ said Mace, with infinite menace. ’ Cadel was playing for time. ’ Mace took a step forward. ’ Cadel ducked sideways, and might have escaped if he had judged his route more expertly.

Cadel chose the typist’s chair. He felt ill at ease in his room, which still bore traces of its previous occupants: a name (‘Carlie’) scratched onto the skirting board; half a dozen hooks screwed into the ceiling; a unicorn transfer peeling off the window-pane.
