“You want my help selecting a present for Inspector Lewis?” James asks.

Hobson nods.  “I’d like to get something he’d really enjoy.”

“You’ve known him longer than I have, Doctor.”

“We’re off duty; call me Laura.  You spend more time with him than I do.  And it’s a detective’s job to uncover secrets.”

“There are gaps in his Wagner collection,” James says, grimacing.

“Not your taste?”

“Hardly.  For opera, I’d rather have John Adams.”

When he unwraps his present from Lewis, James blinks at a CD of Doctor Atomic, and recalls that a pathologist’s job is also to uncover secrets.
