Did you bring some back with you as well?

“No; this is our pay from Ronnie; he lied. We can cut this lot even more and sell it for forty grand.

The punters will never know they are snorting talcum powder mixed with coke up their bugles. Their will still get high but will have to buy more from us.”

“Christ Michael you know all the dodges.”

“I learned a lot in nick matey; now we have got to get this cut and weighed then we will pay my friend a visit.

The two men spent over four hours mixing and cutting the coke then wrapping each small packet into silver foil. Then they went to bed for a few hours even though it was morning in England.


That evening Michael rang a number he knew off by heart and arranged a meeting with an Italian called Gio Brugnoli.

“What you got for me?

“Four keys.”

“How much?

“I want forty grand; you can sell this for twice that to your rich friends Gio.”

“Alright bring it over and we can try it?

“I’ll be with you in fifteen minutes.”

“Gio hung up.”

“Right jump to it; we are going to make some real money.”

Both men changed then Michael threw a small holdall that he’d bought on the seat behind.

They drove to Tynemouth Golf Course.

“We got time to play golf said Johnny.

“No, you idiot; my friend owns it. Michael parked up then knocked on the door. The door was answered by a dark haired Italian in a plush suit.

“Bongeourno; my friend.”

“Bongeourno Gio; this is another friend of mine Johnny Gallagher.

“Pleased to meet you; please come in.”

The two men followed the Italian into the lounge where he poured them some bourbon.

“Did you bring the gear with you Michael?

Yes; here it is?

Gio took one of the packages then weighed it on a set of scales then opened it and dipped his little finger into it and then ran it across his teeth.

“Good my friend very good.”

He went to a safe in the wall and took out a large some of money then placed it into another holdall.

“Forty grand; right?

“That’s what I asked for; nice to do business with you Gio.”

“Any time.”
