49 Q and A with Jessica
Mrs Thompson, you had been working, hadn’t you, in an Intelligence unit before you met the engineer. Did you talk to him about it at all ?
Was it not done, to speak of these things?
Well, it was not done to speak about any Intelligence affairs.
So, he couldn’t have known about your involvement with Intelligence?
Unless someone else told him.
Because, you can see what I’m getting at, there are, there is a theory about this whole affair, that the man on the beach was a spy, of some kind?
Um, it’s a, quite a melodramatic thesis, isn’t it?
Why would Jessica give such detailed information about Alf Boxall to Detective Canney the day he visited her, only to remain mute thereafter?
