Part 85: Good Cop, Bad Cop - Part 15

If the rain hasn't stopped, they must all be soaking by now.

Back to the potty? Ee, I can't keep up.

Obviously the ivy itself isn't important. What's important is...

Ee, keep your crazy hair on, Prof. I'll see if I can't get it right this time.

What's important is where the ivy were growing ont' castle walls.

Hilda, can you see that small ledge along the wall underneath where the broken ivy is?

Yes, I can see it. What of it?

Well, don't you think you could get a foothold on a ledge like that?

You can't be serious.

The rooftops of the West and East Towers are at almost the same level as the top floor of the Central Tower.

That doesn't look like a “little” jump to me.

All you'd have to do is shuffle along the ledge towards the West Tower, and jump off at t' other end.

You'd be on the roof of the West Tower in a jiffy.

But you couldn't...I mean, put a single foot wrong, and you'd plummet to your death.

Aye, just the sort of antics you'd expect from a daredevil like Justin.

Have we ever seen Justin show any sort of “daredevil” behaviour?

This is all very compelling, but it's the first I've heard of this circus act way to move between the towers.

Of course I do.

You are the evidence, Justin. Your body is proof.

What? How? Where on my body?

Al's so angry, he's turned into Dracula.

Ee, keep your crazy hair on, Prof. I'll see if I can't get it right this time.

I'll tell you where, Justin.

All over, that's where!


I bet you were pleased with yourself when you thought to use the self same trick to kill Diane as her father.


That seemed a bit too easy.

Ee, Justin...

Just think if you hadn't killed Diane, nobody would be any the wiser.

Al probably would be dead by this point if Justin hadn't killed Diane, but who cares about that, right?

It was big risk to use the same trick to kill that girl. A big risk.

I was well aware of that.

Then why did you do it?

Take what?

The constant feeling that I might be found out at any moment. It's been four long years.

And these last few months have been the worst.

I thought that everyone who knew about what happened was out of the picture.

And to make matters worse, Makepeace's daughter made an appearance as well.

I couldn't be sure what her father had told her.

I needed to be assured of her silence.


It all started to go wrong that fateful day four years ago.

Hah! Don't flatter yourself.

You couldn't shoot me. You know you couldn't.

Keelan shooting Al is fair game though.


Let me spell it out for you.

Is that true?

Diane's murder was the same.

Left to her own devices, she would almost certainly have shot me in the head.

Ah ha ha ha hah! So, we'll just leave it at that, shall we? All is forgiven!


Give over, Justin. That's not going to wash.

Now throw me in a cell before I change my mind.


Poor Al. He really didn't deserve any of this.

Would you like me to, Prof?

No. No, it's alright, thank you, Lucy.
