Henry laughed obligingly but he was not enjoying the conversation. Susan picked up the glass and offered it to her father, putting a hand on his shoulder at the same time. Her voice was a gentle caress. Take some of this, Father.

Yet he felt uneasy beside the man now, fearful that Wickens might probe him about his earlier desertion of his usual haunts.
