Strike stands outside of Hamleys after having bought Christmas presents for his nephews.
“Strike stood beneath the awning of Hamleys on Regent Street, shopping bags at his feet…” Troubled Blood, Chapter 27
“The bulky bags he was carrying contained three identical Nerf blasters for his nephews; large plastic guns which shot foam bullets, which Strike had decided to buy on the dual grounds that he would have loved one when he was eleven, and the assistant had assured him they were on of the must-have gifts of the year.” Troubled Blood, Chapter 27
