Tony’s smile was barely perceptible, but it reached his eyes. ‘I’m glad. You’re going to stay in the police?’

‘It’s the only thing I’m good at. I won’t work with Morgan and his people, though. I don’t care what he thinks. I’m not like him and I won’t let him convince me otherwise. They’re giving me some time to decide where I want to go, what I want to do. What about you? Are you going to keep hiding?’

‘No. I can’t. If the last few weeks have proved anything, it’s that profiling is what I do best. I’m going to put out some feelers when I get back, maybe see if there’s something for me with Europol. I can do good work alongside cops like Marijke and Petra.’

‘That’s a relief. I was scared you’d been put off again.’

Again, they grew quiet. This time, it was Tony who spoke first. ‘So, where do we go from here?’

Carol shrugged. ‘I have no idea. Onwards and upwards somehow.’

‘I’d like to be there for that,’ he said.

She smiled. ‘I don’t think you’ve got any choice.’
