The phone rang in the sands club at one thirty in the morning and the man who had spoken with Ronnie Skinner answered.

“Everything is in place follow the man with the holdall we will take care of the other one later.

“Right boss.”

“Look’s like they are leaving.”

Follow them and then follow the one who stays in the taxi.”


A man lay on the on top of the grass bank waiting as a taxi pulled up out side the kipper house the man waved as the taxi pulled away.

Michael picked up the holdall and walked along the Pier at North Shields he smiled to himself as he thought how he had outwitted Ronnie Skinner again.


The silencer was screwed onto the German Sniper rifle, the gunman took aim through the telescopic sight until it marked out the target which was the back of Michael O’Leary’s head her breathed out slowly as the man came ever closer to the trawler. Then he fired.

Johnny Gallagher got out of the cab and paid the driver who then drove away. Fumbling in his pocket for the keys as a man came silently behind him and slit his throat. Johnny’s dying gurgling sound emanated from his lips as he took the key from his hand then opened the front door and dragged the body in with him.

As Johnny lay bleeding to death the man went around the house where he found another bag with all the money in it. He opened the door and slid out into the night.

His car was parked a street away so he walked up to it and opened the door and got in.

He placed the money on the floor of the passenger seat then drove away.
