Tom Turvey

We briefly meet Tom Turvey in Career of Evil when we learn that he is dating Matthew’s old university friend, Sarah Shadlock. Robin finds him “boring and obtuse.”

In Lethal White, it is revealed that Tom and Sarah have recently become engaged and that Tom has helped get Matthew a new better-paying job at his firm. Matthew and Sarah often team up and tease Tom about his baldness, a fact that Matthew knows Tom is self-conscious of. In most of the instances that we meet Tom, he appears drunk, including at Robin and Matthew’s wedding reception, their housewarming party, and on a night out with Robin and Matthew where Tom appears to have finally lost his patience with Matthew’s teasing.
