Bellman & True - Desmond Lowden. The man and the boy walked down the street with their cases. It was dark, October had come suddenly to London. And it was quiet, the Earl’s Court hotels were small and sad. One of them on the corner had a cold blue sign, Hotel Marina, and a card in the doorway saying Vacancies. The man led the way over.
