The mysterious S. J. Whitwell turns out to be Sonya – she used to work at M&L in the accounts department before she got given the boot. She says she got fired after making some comments about Lancaster going bust. Sonya made no secret of her disgust at Peterson’s behavior – flitting off approval at Peterson flitting off the South of France while Lancaster investors had nothing.
Sony claims to have been Rose’s best friend and seems like she genuinly cares about the people who lost money in Lancaster. Is there more to the story though?
