The Borough Treasurer is a mystery novel by J. S. Fletcher. Excerpt from the book: Kitely took another sip from his glass and set it down. He gave Cotherstone a sharp look. "Yes," he said, "yes—five-and-twenty years. You and your partner, both. Yes—it'll be just about thirty years since I first saw you. But—you've forgotten." Cotherstone, who had been lounging forward, warming his hands at the fire, suddenly sat straight up in his chair. His face, always sharp seemed to grow sharper as he turned to his visitor with a questioning look. "Since—what?" he demanded. "Since I first saw you—and Mr. Mallalieu," replied Kitely. "As I say, you've forgotten. But—I haven't."
