Details about Against the Clock by John Carson
Against the Clock by John Carson ePub PDF free download – Lenny Smith stood at the exit door of the block of flats and put a hand on his side. He was sweating and had a stitch and that was just from coming down in the lift. That and the fact he’d come out in his slippers. His wife had wasted no time in pointing that out, and he’d been tempted to tell her that he’d give her a slipper over the arse, but that would have resulted in his waking up with a body part missing. The kicker had been when he saw the old boot from next door in the lift just as the doors began to close. ‘Hold it!’ he’d shouted, and he could have sworn the old cow pressed the close button. He’d just managed to get a hand between the closing doors. ‘Thanks, love,’ he said, silently cursing her. ‘Aye,’ she replied, as if English were her second language and that was the only word she’d mastered so far. Down in the lobby, he’d stood and got his breath back. He double-checked that he had indeed removed his slippers and was pleased to see the trainers with the Velcro fasteners were on his feet.
