Who masterminded the Pizza Snatch, the Rectory Job, the Museum Swindle, the Gas Fire and the Guano Heist? The supergrasses have been singing like birds. Alas, they do not all sing the same tune. But it is no less embarrassing for that, as they all name the same three pillars of our gallant constabulary, P. C. Plant, Inspector Hound and Commissioner Cod.
Here, in tabular form, is the word according to Fingers Flanagan, Harry the Horse, Sam Snout, Tell-tale Ted and Willie Whisper. Please take it that each is right in exactly two of his allegations and work out the villain of each case.
