“And now the truth, Paolo! How did you get this diamond? And why are you so worried about it? You didn’t get it honestly, did you? It wasn’t yours to give, was it? Who knows about it... who’s likely to miss it? We can talk about Mrs Flaherty later... but I’m sure she’s connected in some way!”
“Okay, okay, okay!” said Paolo, “but please keep it out of sight, for now. The diamond was given by Ronan Flaherty, Mary’s husband, to a girl he was shagging on the side.”
“...and you were shagging her too maybe?”
“Maybe...” Paolo agreed, sheepishly.
