Try up at the witch’s cottage. ” Hamish set out for the cottage. A great wind was tossing grey clouds over the sky. Buzzards wheeled above and a heron, its strong wings able to cope with the gale, sailed down and settled on a rock by the water. Two television vans were already down on the waterfront, and he could see Blair’s posse of policemen going door-to-door. One policeman was on guard outside the cottage, hunched against the wind. ” asked Hamish. ” The policeman barred his way. ” “Aye, but he meant the press or the villagers,” said Hamish.
