Extract

There were people things happened to. Billy knew that because he'd been one himself - for a while, anyway. The boy in the swimming trunks had been another. So, for that matter, had Trevor Lydgate. What was the quality they shared? Were they unlucky, or naive, or were they simply weak? He couldn't decide. Nowadays, of course, they would be called victims. not a word you'd ever think of applying to Raymond.
