Shifty’s Boss (SB)

While investigating Shifty for blackmail, the agency focuses heavily on Shifty’s Boss (or “SB”) to try to learn what exactly Shifty could have on him. SB is described as a “rotund” man with  “a bald patch like a monk’s tonsure.”1 

They soon discover that SB is making frequent visits to a blonde woman in Stoke Newington, but are unaware as to what goes on inside the home.2
