Hello, in Alan Hunter's 'Gently by the Shore' I came across this expression that to me sounds a bit like an idiom. I did not succeed in finding its meaning so maybe you can help. Here is the scene - inspector Gently is trying to question a prostitute Frenchy in a bar: ‘Where did you meet him – here or in London?’ ‘Who?’ she demanded sullenly. ‘The deceased – the man who was stabbed.’ ‘Me!’ she burst out, ‘what have I got to do with it?’ ‘I don’t know,’ murmured Gently, ‘I thought perhaps that was what you came across to tell me . . .’ Frenchy riposted with a stream of adjectives that fairly blistered the woodwork.
