Oz has taken a call from Kenny Brown who wants messaging asap on their arrival.


Oz: “ Ok I’ll bear that in mind when we get there. By the way Kenny,how did you get to know about this body?”

Kenny: “ Your friend Delgado had to file a report on the trafficking incident which was officer Sanchez’s case. She told us. She’d seen both sisters you recall so when she heard Zoe had discharged herself to go after Tatiana , Sanchez flagged it up to Delgado. Oz, I’ve used up a lot of favours on this case and I told Chris we should draw a line under it sooner than later. Like you I’m not comfortable with his bright idea .”

Oz: “I know what you mean, I’m having a problem looking Barry in the eye right now. Incidentally he’s with Jo and Luis waiting for the chopper pilot. You do know Greig is focussed on the drone business, but Sarah told me he is also briefed on the trafficking ? ”

Kenny: “ Don’t worry I’ll take care of that. Oz , I need to know. Shall I tell Chris that you’ll make the decision about Barry?”

Oz: “ I don’t have an option do I Kenny. I’ve known Barry a long time and I’ve seen what Tatiana has done to him over the years , but who am I to tell him she’s dead when I know he’d take her back even from a Peruvian knocking shop?”

Kenny: “ Sorry Oz, for what my opinion’s worth I wouldn’t touch a woman like that with a barge pole, but then I’m not Barry.”

Oz: “ There’s the chopper starting up. I’ll have to go kiddah. Wish me luck. I’ll talk to you later.”


Barry: “ You were on the ‘phone a long time Oz. Is there a problem?”

Oz: “ No not really .It was Kenny Brown he’s been telling Chris how we’re doing.”

Barry: “Didn’t he call before?”

Oz: “ Aye he did ,asking after you Bazza ,but you were in no fit state.”

Barry: “I know. I’m sorry Oz, my head’s a mess.”

Oz: “ Howay man, it’s no surprise ,anyone would be in a state if they’d just been presented with a thing like this.”

Barry: “ I suppose you’re right Oz. What will I do if it’s not Tatiana, they weren’t clear were they. They said she’s been dead two days?”

Oz: “ Barry, Barry man take it easy. I told you before don’t be torturing yourself. You don’t know what to expect, all Kenny and the lads have been told it was the body of a blonde European woman they think in her late forties.”

Barry: “ Part of me wants it to be her . I’ve been going out of my mind thinking about it .Why did she go back to her old ways Oz. Was it all Zoe’s fault ?”

Oz: “ Barry whatever else happens you have to think about yourself and your Anna. Her future is in your hands.”

Barry : “ You sound like you already know she’s dead, do you know Oz?”

Oz: “ Barry I don’t know.”

Barry: “ I should never have taken her back after Kadi.”

Oz: “ Then you wouldn’t have Anna. Do you fancy a pie kiddah ,we've got a picnic box.I’ve had nowt since breakfast. “

Poor Bazza. On the other hand, once the grief has started to fade, he can start to flush that cancer from his life. Unless it's not her afterall ??? :x

Wyman has arranged with Kenny Ames for a video conference if Juan Gomez is agreeable.



Wyman: “ Hi Juan I have explained your circumstances to Mr Ames, and he understands the concerns of you and your family if you were to leave Aruba. He suggests we have a video conference . If you agree we can proceed in an hour. He is in the UK at present and as you know I am at the Leisure Centre in Grand Turk.”

Juan: “ Wyman, I will let you have another ‘phone number. Please thank him and say I wish to proceed as quickly as possible. Thank you Wyman.”

Wyman:” We both hope everyone will benefit from this Juan. “


During the course of the next hour Wyman learned it was a Mexican cartel heavily into people trafficking, behind the drone attack, not the mafia. Juan got chapter and verse about the medical procedure he needed from Kenny along with Dr Roebucks details . As they compared who had been targeted and how the toxin had been deployed, Juan revealed that one of his consigliere friends similarly afflicted had caught the perpetrator in the act.

Juan: “ He was able to give us his instructions in detail. He was supplied with sheets of adhesive on a weekly basis and, disguised as a plumbing services operative gained access to swimming pools, jacuzzi, gym and other facilities. He applied the adhesive sheet to designated areas favoured only by his targets .”

Kenny: “ This has been a well constructed plan ,the level of observation alone must have been conducted with military precision.”

Wyman: “ Juan these people have a vested interest in trafficking and drugs but why target Dennis and Kenny?”

Juan: “ In our investigations we have discovered that some targets are not mafiosa or cartel but associated with security like you Mr Ames , others are politicians or prominent business men. You sir must have really annoyed someone to be framed for murder as well .”

Kenny:” I expect there will have been other collateral damage like our Dennis Patterson ?”

Juan: “ Inevitable I would think, the plumbing is not exclusive if others use the facilities like your friend. “

Wyman: “ How many people did this guy infect do you know?”

Juan: “ Impossible to say Wyman, he worked with two others we know of , definitely three figures I would guess. I know only of the consigliere.”

Kenny: “ Did you find out about his supplier?”

Juan: “ I did but I’m not sure it helps us. The sheets were supplied by someone in CWN.”





The helicopter landed and Jo and Luis headed straight for the door.


Oz: “ You’re not coming with us?”

Luis: “ No Oz, we have orders from Kenny to make ourselves ready in case.”

Oz: “ Ready, in case of what?” Luis glanced across at Barry who was collecting his bags. He looked at Oz and raised his eyebrows and nodded in Barry’s direction. This activity had not gone unnoticed by Greig.

Greig: “ When we get out Oz I need to contact detective Sanchez. We have some questions for Kenny Brown. Can you keep me posted of your whereabouts?”

Oz: “ I could pal but I’d have to ask what’s it to you where I go?”

Greig: “It’s important we are all on the same page, pal. We don’t want to alert someone else to a potential problem. Do we?” He glanced at Oz and nodded in Barry’s direction.

Oz: “ I don’t like your tone PAL.” He was interrupted by Barry.

Barry: “ Oz ,Oz,we’re here. Let’s get going.”



Oz: “ I hate the smell of these places. Reminds me of the dentists as a kid.”

Greig: “ I’ll wait over here Oz. This is a personal moment for Mr Taylor.” A tall swarthy chap in white overalls came to speak to them. He asked for id and Barry showed him his passport. “ Follow me Mister Taylor.” He glanced at Oz.” You are with him?”

Oz: “ Yes I am.” Oz showed him his passport and he nodded and carried on down the corridor, and into a side room. The room was narrow , one wall was taken up with an array of drawers. The tall guy consulted a card and pulled open one of the drawers .

Oz: “ Looks like you’re on Bazza.”

Barry: “ Oh Jesus Oz.” He turned away , arms raised to his face.

Oz: “ Barry man ,calm down. Is it her?”

Barry : “ What happened to her face?” The attendant spoke to Oz .” She was found outside ,all soft tissue compromised, no fingerprints. Do you know her?”

Oz: “ Barry what do you think kiddah?”

Barry: “I don’t know Oz. All this caused by animals? I need to look at her back. Thank you sir.” The attendant turned her over.” It’s not her Oz there’s no tattoo, there’s no tattoo.” He was shouting now and jumping up and down.

Oz: “ Could she have had the tattoo removed Barry?”

Barry : “ It’s possible I suppose but why would she have it removed?”

Oz: “ I don’t know Barry ,I’m just saying. Without fingerprints how can we be sure?”

Barry: “ Oz, I need to be alone with her . I need to have a closer look.” He glanced up at the attendant and Oz left the room.


Oz was on the ‘phone to Kenny Brown.

Oz: “ Kenny , it’s Oz. It’s not her is it?”

Kenny: “ Has Barry identified the body?”

Oz: “ He said it’s not Tatiana. Hang on I see him coming out. Oh my God he’s grinning. That tells me it’s definite, it’s not her. I guess that means we’re making that trip that Luis hinted at.”

Juan looked from Kenny to Wyman shaking his head in surprise.


Juan: “ You look disappointed. I thought you would be pleased .Is this not what you expected ? “

Kenny: “ This is way too easy Juan. We had luck and some clever footwork to thank for the identification of Pfister. Can I ask did you come by the identity of the supplier in your usual course of business , if it’s not an impolite question?”

Juan: “ It came to us indirectly from a source in Miami, and to answer your question no, it was not through my regular network. Are you telling me that Amesec drew a blank here?”

Kenny: “ CWN still doesn’t know we made Pfister and that’s why I think this could be a trap.”

Juan: “ It won’t be a trap if we are all ready.”

Wyman: “ I agree Juan, what we’ve learned from you today will help us get justice for my family ,it looks like we have a common enemy, even if I see problems if we try to work together.” Kenny glanced at Wyman’s image on the screen.

Kenny: “ Rest assured both of you, at Amesec we have a broad church. What Wyman said does raise a point though Juan . Beyond sharing our intel we could be looking at a potential minefield .You know of our global relations with the intelligence community ?”

Juan: “ Not a problem Kenny, I can call you Kenny?”

Kenny: “ Indeed Juan. I believe if there is enough goodwill perhaps we can find a mutually satisfactory relationship through our respective networks?”

Juan: “ Let me know how you see this working and we’ll get together again Kenny. It’s been a very fruitful meeting gentlemen. Goodbye”

Kenny: “ Absolutely Juan. I have a few things to discuss with Wyman but for now I’ll say goodbye.”


As soon as Juan broke the connection Kenny turned his attention to Wyman.

Kenny: “ What the hell are you planning ,what do you think you can do, getting justice for your family, on your own?”

Wyman: “ Kenny this is the proof we’ve been looking for ,we now know who blew up the jeep .”

Kenny: “ I had a conversation with Mel not long after you’d, what can I say discovered the tunnels, she told me what these Mexican traffickers are like. Wyman there is nothing you can do as an individual , these people have to be tackled by professionals. You must walk away from this , you’ve seen first hand what reach they have.”

Wyman: “ I’ll talk to you later Kenny. Cheerio for now.”



Kenny ‘phoned Chrissy to tell her about the conference call and his concern for Wyman.


Chrissy: “ I had a similar story from Mel, she said these are not people you pick a fight with, I know Wyman knows this but he has been bottling things up.”

Kenny: “ Will he take any notice of the lads?”

Chrissy: “He might take notice of Dennis. It was Bomber who kept an eye on him in the early days . I can certainly ask though, I’ll talk to Moxey when he gets back as well. By the way Kenny, did he talk to you about the leisure centres?”

Kenny: “ Only that the numbers were a bit down and Juan had suggested it might be worth looking at a revaluation. Apparently property prices have fallen in that neck of the woods.”

Chrissy was explaining to Moxey about her call from Kenny Ames.


Chrissy: “ So Kenny is worried that Wyman might do something reckless now he knows who blew up the jeep.”

Moxey: “ This is one of those times when Bomber could have helped. Wyman would listen to him. We all get on with the lad but we’ve never had the same kind of understanding he had with Bomber.”

Chrissy : “ Do you think he would listen to Dennis?”

Moxey: “ It’s worth a shot pet ,I’ll ask him. We’re meeting at a building site this morning.”



Down at the site Moxey and Nev were directing a lorry delivering timber when Den arrived.

Neville: “ What sort of time is this, can anyone be late or is it only gaffers get a lie in?”

Dennis: “ Bollocks.”

Moxey: “ We’re short handed Den , we’re missing Oz and Wyman. Where’ve you been?”

Dennis: “ Stop bloody whining the both of you. If you must know I’ve been talking to Kenny Ames who is on his way to Spain and wants to meet with us. So I carried on a bit further and just got on the motorway when the ‘phone goes again. This time it’s Sarah up at the castle.”

Neville: “ What’s her problem?”

Dennis: “ She’s heard from Oz, the body is not Tatiana’s and him and Barry are both off to Peru.”

Moxey:” Peru, what they’re going there for?”

Dennis: “ Those two lads of Kenny Browns reckon she is there working in a converted barracks.”

Neville:” Converted barracks?”

Dennis: “ I swear I’ll go round the bloody twist if you two keep repeating everything I say. I know we’re short handed , it’s those two buggers causing all the grief. We’ve also had a call from Chip ,you know the Chocanaw chief.”

Moxey: “ Chip ?”

Neville: “ Can it Mox.”

Dennis: “ Yes. His call was put through to Dagmar as he’d been given the Amesec number by the FBI. She said he was very apologetic but insisted he would only talk to us. That is to say the guys that put up the bridge. He is coming by a special CWN flight. Kenny Brown will have passed on the news to Chris and I reckon he insisted, you know what he's like .”

Neville: “ Any indication what it’s about?”

Dennis: “ Dagmar said he seemed very upset and emotional. All he'd say was it’s to do with the drone attack that killed Mel and Mai.”

Moxey: “ The way Wymans been acting I don’t think it’d be a good idea to tell him even if he could get here .Chrissy had her ear bent by Kenny Ames after him and Wyman had the video call with Gomez ,the Mafia guy. He told them he knew who it was who blew up the jeep. That’s why she wondered if you might have a word with him Den?”




Greig was trying to talk to Oz after he’d finished his call with Kenny Brown.


Greig: “ So Mister Osbourne I gather your friend is planning a trip to Peru?”

Oz: “ You seem to know everything ,how do you manage that?”

Greig: “ Really ,you don’t know, that was a rhetorical question by the way. In my job one has to be aware ,all the time. Look, I assume you’re going with him so keep your eyes open and if there is anything significant let me know. I’ll give you my number. Just leave a message ,you can do that for me I’m sure, pal?”

Oz: “ We never finished our last chat ,pal. So ,let's get some things straight I don’t work for you , I’m not your pal and what’s more I don’t like you . PAL. I suggest you sling your hook, before I do it for you. Ok?”

Greig: “ Sarah implied you are very amusing . Now listen to me you thick Geordie prat .You may have momentarily turned her head but when she tires of the humour I’ll be there to pick up the pieces. While you’re down in the jungle with those two loons keep your eyes peeled and keep me informed or I’ll want to know the reason why.”

Oz: “ Hey lad, you must be deaf as well as daft. Peel your own eyes and piss off.”

It was at this point Greig made his second mistake. His first was trying to turn Oz round, the second was to get too close.

Dagmar and Dennis were taking Chip from the airport to the castle.


Dennis: “ We’re all looking forward to seeing you Chip, Sarah has organised everything , she’s an expert at logistics ,which is just as well while Oz is away.”

Chip: “ It is good of you to do this for me. I’m afraid I do not bring happy news my friends.”

Dagmar: “ Dennis has told me a lot about you Chip, I’m sure things will not be as bad as you think. You will meet with the others in a few minutes, we’ll be having a meal together later.”

Chip looked so downcast that Dennis didn’t know what to say.

Dennis: “ You’ll meet Sarah, Chip, Oz saw her for the first time when we were bringing the bridge over to you, that’s a bit of a coincidence, and the rest of our friends should be there by now. Sarah has insisted that you stay with us while you’re here so forget about the hotel in town.”

Chip: “ The unhappiness I feel is not your fault. I need to explain. I tried while I was coming here but the words didn’t come.”

Dagmar: “ Chip , just forget it for the moment , first we will eat together, then we will talk.”




Sarah had done her research and the dinner included venison and rabbit along with fresh fruits and honey. The first comment was made by Chip who said he might be eating at home .

Chip: “ It is often not understood but we all started as hunter gatherers. Oz is a very lucky man to have one as thoughtful. Thankyou Sarah.”

Chrissy: “ Wyman has told me a lot about his time with you and of course he found his wife and child with the Chocanaws. It is like a home for him Chip.”

Chip: “ He is well thought of and it makes it doubly hard for me to tell you ,but I must.”

Sarah: “ We have heard that some things came to light from the FBI enquiries?”

Chip: “ If no one minds I will make a start. This begins on the first day you arrived and Joe took you to meet the tribal council.”

Dennis: “ Yes we were embarrassed, the customs confiscated our stuff ……” Neville interrupted.

Neville: “ I think Chip wants to finish Den.” Nev gave Den the nod and inclined his head to where they could see Chip looking down at his plate.

Dennis: “ Sorry Chip, carry on lad.”

Chip: “ In fact it was something you said that made us realise how much Charlie Fox was against the idea. You recall I was working out of town ,but Joe told me what happened afterwards. There were a few who did not want it, but still took the casino money . He didn’t like the way you spoke to him Dennis .He played at the tribal elder ,was jealous of Joe and continued to undermine the bridge project. So he was perfect for the Mexicans to play him at their game. The traffickers had been active long before we knew and had informants in the tribe. The trafficked people mixed with the casino crowds and were able to move on undetected, until the tunnels were discovered. Wy man became their focus , we think they had him as FBI because of Mel, but Dawn and some of Lanie’s family had always been against him ,passing on gossip to Charlie Fox, including lies about trips to the Chicken Shack to make him look bad and split him up from Mel.”

Chrissy: “ What’s the Chicken Shack?”

Dennis: “ It’s a house of ill repute near the border .” Dennis looked across at Neville. Moxey noticed and was about to say something when Neville spoke up.

Neville: “ Let Chip finish his story, ok?”

Chip: “ Well there isn’t much more, the FBI say when that jeep was seen on that stretch of road the traffickers would know Wy man was on his way to keep a regular appointment. I’m sorry but their gossip caused the death of Mel and Mai.”

A surprised Barry was staring open mouthed at Oz as he straightened Greigs’ tie.


Oz: “ Sorry pal, it was just a reflex action .Nothing personal.”

Greig had a puzzled look on his face as Oz was now brushing dirt off his jacket.

Greig: “ Nothing personal,what is wrong with you ?”

Oz: “ Look bonny lad let’s not get into that again and let’s hear no more about Sarah. Hang on here’s Luis. Luis my man, what’s up?”

Luis: “ See Oz, Mr Taylor has confirmed the body is not that of his wife. So, does that mean plan B?”

Barry: “ What’s plan B?”

Oz: “ I told you Barry, don’t you remember, the call from Kenny Brown?”

Barry: “ You mean the woman with the mercenaries who went to Peru?”

Oz: “ Yes, the same lot who were in Belize ,they took some women with them and one was blonde.”

Barry: “ So what are we waiting for?” Luis looked at Jo who shrugged and rolled his eyes.

Jo: “ What’s wrong Luis?”

Luis: “ This new mine is near the border with Peru ,it’s hot, humid and it’s a long way senor Barry.”

Barry: “ You’re not married Luis, you wouldn’t understand. See I don’t have an option. I have to go.”



They followed the same route taken with Kenny but with a larger ,eight seater vehicle the last leg was not as uncomfortable.


Barry had trouble with his feet. All his problems were down to Luis.

Barry: “ Why did we leave the car Luis. We’ve been walking for miles. How much further is it, this is like jungle?”

Luis: “ If you look senor Barry there is no road. This is why we don’t take the car. You have the wrong boots and if you look over there you will see the building we are going to.” He pointed ahead through the trees where the outline of the barracks was just visible.


Oz: “ I’m sure the holiday brochure said there was a good road Jo ?”

Jo: “ There was until we came here, this is ,how you say, off limits?”

Barry: “ Off limits it’s bloody wild man, it’s jungle ,all these flaming insects and the heat.”

Oz: “ Here Barry ,have a drink lad.” He passed Barry his flask who took a swig and grinned.

Barry: “ I gather this is the Osbourne pick me up?”

Oz: “ Got to keep your strength up Bazza.” Oz grinned back at him , but his mind was in turmoil. Luis spoke quietly in his ear.

Luis: “ How do you want to play this Oz, we told you how things worked before?”

Oz: “ First of all how do we get in Luis, it’s not like a night club is it?”

Luis: “ It’s easy ,it has to be, for the miners who come here are in a hurry, for everything senor. Drink, drugs ,women.”

It was quiet and rather dark when they went in. Luis looked at his watch.

Luis: “ Another fifteen ,twenty minutes perhaps before the last shift gets here.”

Barry: “ Oz, is this where these mercenaries come to drink?”

Oz: “ Not sure Barry, what do you reckon Jo?” Oz nodded to Jo.” Are they likely to be here?”

Jo: “ There are many drinking dens around the mines some are just huts with home made beer ,others are like this catering for everything and giving kickbacks to mineowners. It was the same in Guatemala.”


Barry: “ What are they mining?”

Luis: “ They say copper but Kenny heard there is some silver and gold. Do you see the scales on that bar, I would guess this place is more than it seems?”

Barry: “ Is that why you have a gun Luis?”

Luis: “It pays to be careful senor Barry. I suggest we make these drinks last, I think they make it nearby.” Luis glanced at Oz and gave a slight shake of his head.

There was a commotion from the doorway and a crowd of mestizos were running in the direction of the bar. Still in their mudstained workclothes their grinning faces belied the conditions they’d just left .Luis looked again at Oz while Barry was distracted and whispered in his ear .”If she comes like last time it will be from over there where those minders are stood. What will we do if Barry believes it’s her?”

Oz: “ Luis I don’t know.” They were interrupted by another commotion at the entrance but Oz recognised the man at the head of a group of six or seven dressed in ponchos and smocks just making an entrance. It was Kenny Brown.

Oz: “ Bloody Norah Kenny, why lad you’re a welcome sight ,have you brought the foreign legion?”

Kenny: “Hi Oz ,ok lads, Luis, Jo , Barry, fancy meeting you lot here.” They all laughed. “ We heard in Panama that there may be some trouble .It is rumoured that government troops are being sent from Iquitos because the security forces lost control at one of the mines. “

Oz: “ Dear me ,you might guess we have all the luck.”

Kenny: “ I see the minders are on duty ,I recognise the nearest one .She must be due any minute?”

Jo: “ Yes,I hear the music starting.”

Barry: “ The sound system is crap for a place this size.” Barry’s attention had shifted from watching the transactions at the bar. Oz was watching him and saw his mouth fall open. Oz turned and saw a thin, frail figure he recognised, shuffle toward the centre of the stage. The audience roared.

Oz: “ Luis, Jo, keep an eye on Barry. ” Oz stood up and walked to the stage. One of the minders gave Oz a hard stare clearly not expecting a blatant move. The figure on stage noticed the movement,looked across to the minder and then directly at Oz. She stopped.Recognition dawned. Oz turned and nodded at Kenny.

Afterwards when recalling the events to Sarah, Oz said he could see relief, embarrassment and then fear flit across her face .It was Tatiana. She shuffled towards him and said something he couldn’t hear above the noise. She was missing two teeth, and bruising was visible through her makeup. He heard Barry yelling her name, he turned, Luis and Jo were struggling to control him. He was in tears. Suddenly Kenny and his men were up on the stage, one of the minders had been decked. They had thrown off the ponchos to reveal uniforms. One of them fired a couple of shots in the air and another was saying something in Spanish about illegal activity and police business. Oz carried a limp and almost weightless Tatiana, followed by Luis and Jo manhandling a near hysterical Barry out of the barracks into torrential rain toward a large people carrier.

Kenny: “ We left the chopper just up the road, another favour from Chris. Pablo’s lads will go back by road .”

Oz: “ It’s true what they say lad, it’s not what you know ,it’s who you know.”

Kenny Ames and Vicky are being entertained by Sarah at the castle.


Sarah: “ So Mr Ames you returned the call from Fredo ?”

Kenny: “ Please Sarah, call me Kenny . Yes I did. Fredo and I have had a good relationship over the years, so when this fresh forensic evidence came to light he ‘phoned me. Current thinking is Helga was assaulted, maybe while being forced to make another ‘phone call, we’ll never know. There were marks on her face and as well as adhesive and toxin some DNA was recovered. The FBI got a hit, a known Yakusa . I asked him why this didn’t come to light before but got no answer.”

Sarah: “ You told me everything fell into place at that point?”

Kenny: “ Well kind of. For a long time I’ve wondered about Heather Lane. You know she has no real footprint, at least none that Amesec could find? The evidence implicating Benito and Oz’s wife, the improprieties at Outreach, the attempt to muzzle Amesec after we uncovered Ali Frasers connections to the Mbutha business. All down to her. It was staring us in the face. Heather has made no secret that she covets our intel gathering and I believe she’s tried to discredit us and destabilise the business with a view to acquiring it one way or another, including framing me for murder.”

Sarah: “ Most of these facts have been available to me but I didn’t make the connection ,or perhaps I didn’t want to believe she could be so devious. Even during the roughing up she got from Fraser and Tarquin, there was never a hint of a different agenda.”

Kenny: “ There is more. Why did she recruit Detlef? She was aware of his CWN connection through Chris and so a route perhaps to the Stilles?”

Sarah: “ Are you are saying she is behind the widespread use of the toxin?”

Kenny: “ I’m not sure. Someone is upsetting the status quo in the Caribbean . According to Juan Gomez a large number of consigliere and many other prominent figures have been poisoned. To what end one may ask?”

Sarah: “Chris Norris found his ‘plane was bugged and he was poisoned of course. Do you think it was Heather rather than the Stille’s , we know they are unhappy about Chris and Wyman ?”

Kenny: “ I look at what the end result could be and it makes no sense . By replacing the movers and shakers with your own people you gain control of the illegal activities like drugs and trafficking, and through the political and commercial figures just about everything else. This I could believe of the Stille’s, they have the form and the infrastructure. “

Sarah: “ Unless they’re in it together?”





Luis and Jo are struggling to keep Barry still. Kenny shouted to them to chin him if he wouldn’t behave. Up at the front Oz is sitting next to Kenny who is piloting them north over the national park.


Oz: “ She’s not conscious Kenny ,I think she needs medical attention. God knows what she’s been using.”

Kenny: “ There’s a hospital in Quito. Chris has some influence there." Oz glanced across." Don’t ask.”

Oz: “ Wasn’t going to. Oh shit she’s peed all over me trousers.” Kenny laughed like a drain. ” No smart remarks from you KB. I’m not in the mood. How long to this place?”

Kenny: “ At this speed under an hour. We’re just over the national park , it’s maybe another hundred plus miles.”

Oz: “ Is that Chris you’re ‘phoning?”

Kenny: “ Yes.If he can’t fix it for us in Quito I need to know now.”

Luis: “ Kenny we’re struggling back here .”

Oz: “ Hey Barry stop being an arsehole ,we’re doing our best. We’ve had a lucky escape. Give it a rest man.”

Barry: “Oz I need to see her she looked that poorly”

Oz: “ She’s out for the count kiddah, we’re on our way to hospital .We can’t do any more. Just hang in there mate.”

The lads accepted an invite from Sarah to pop round for a drink and hear the latest from Oz.



Dennis : “ No Kenny or Vicky?”

Sarah: “ No Dennis, they have been whisked away to one of Stefano’s retreats, and no ,I didn’t ask. By the way thanks for that joiners’ number. He’s coming over to give me quote for a tree house just like yours. It’ll be a surprise for Oz.”

Pru: “ Has he said when they’re coming back?”

Sarah: “ No ,they took Tatiana to a hospital in Ecuador and will have to see how she progresses.”

Neville: “ It sounds like this mission was a long shot from his previous message.”

Sarah: “ Indeed ,I would say based on little more than hearsay. But it turned out to be spot on.”

Dagmar: “ Did he say how she was?”

Sarah: “ Not really, just looked emaciated and spaced out. He said they had a stroke of luck though in getting her away . Kenny Brown turned up with some friends and created a bit of a diversion to cover their escape. The call this morning was to say her preliminary examination shows malnutrition , dehydration, extensive bruising ,and maybe a tick infection,and for good measure some dental work required. They’ll know more in a day or so.”

Neville: “ Did he say how Barry is doing?”

Sarah: “ You understand Nev ,the reception is usually poor so I only get a sort of precis of events. Barry is not so well and we can guess why. I’m coming to this for the first time but can’t imagine what sort of hell he's in at the moment.”

Dennis: “ We are all thinking that pet and find it just as difficult, mind Oz will have told you something of their history though?”

Sarah: “ He did, they met a couple of years before the Arizona job, were married after a short time together, went separate ways after he found out about her and Kadi and the drugs business ,later a chance encounter that resulted in her pregnancy. I reckon he’s a man with broad shoulders or he’s besotted with her.”

Chrissy: “ You may all laugh at him but I think it’s wonderful .He’s in love with her. Can’t you all see that. This means they’ll be together again. It’s so romantic.” Dennis rolled his eyes and looked away.

Pru: “ That’s all very well Chrissy but you and I know Anna’s view of this .She’s told us she thinks her dad is a fool for staying . We forget because of her unique nature she’s still a young girl and unlike us sees things with a childs’ eyes.”

Dagmar: “ I know that she’s been spending a lot of time with Sara Victoria and they discuss her family situation, a lot.”




Barry is sat by Tatiana’s bed. He spent the last hour just looking at her. His vigil was interrupted as Oz came in with a nurse.


Oz: “ Barry man ,you need to eat and get some rest. You’ve been here since we arrived.”

Barry: “ Look at her Oz. What is this all about. I just can’t understand?”

Oz: “ Barry man ,none of us can. What she did after finding Zoe, all that business with the mercenaries , Belize to Panama to Peru, none of it makes sense at the moment. I’ll stay here , you go and get some sleep.”



Tatiana is drifting in and out of consciousness.

“There’s someone watching by the bed. It’s a man. Now he’s gone.”
She feels someone lift her arm, she struggles but has no strength. She hears voices. Spanish. They say this person is in a bad way.

“Do they mean me?”

“Who is this?” She moves her head.

“ It looks like , it looks like …..Barry. Oh no don’t see me like this. I am stupid .I went with Zoe .She had a good idea.

She was with Kadi. She told me . She said she would take Barry, so I left. Patrice said he would watch her.

Someone by the bed. They inject my arm . I know this feeling. It’s a long time ago in Moscow. It’s Kadi.

I’m in the jungle. What am I doing here? Someone kicked me .I can see Oz . I can see Barry. He is thin and looks sad. ”
