Extract

'You've got a degree in woodcarving ...? 'Speedy asked drawing languidly on his cigarette and looking at Rigsby through the rear view mirror. 'It's in politics, philosphy and economics' replied Rigsby. 'Fat lot of fucking good that's going to be when we're in the middle of a punch up on a Friday night! We'll go once round the block and then back to the block for din-dins.'
