The news keeps sending me little bits of inspiration. Today, Twitter sent me to news about private detectives being used by the Police in certain cases.

From last month, there was the worrying news that Police are taking days to respond to 999 calls as budget cuts bite, and a report about a bunch of Manchester students who became (briefly) successful drug dealers on the dark web. 

I may not directly use these stories in a Rain & Bullets story, but they can inform the narrative, or be referred to in asides.
