His rounded face with a squashed nose from playing rugby in his youth was red as a beetroot. “You are going to have to go on a diet wor kid’ It is getting’ hard work to get you in and out of this chair.’

“But I only eat a little bit.’

 “I’m not getting’ any younger you know I’m fifty four coming up in September.

“There’s still a bit life in you yet Terry.’

“Aye I reckon there is that; he leaned over and kissed his wife before driving away.

Irish Lilly Henderson walked in with her large carrier bag and took the two washers vacated by Terry Partridge and his wife.’


The Taxi drove Darren Ingles and his girlfriend Tanya Oaks to the airport Tanya loved going on holidays in the sun and was only happy when she was lying on a sunbed in her bikini getting an all over tan. The young Blonde had a nice slim figure and was a regular at the gym to keep her body in tip top shape. She ate like an absolute sparrow and drank club soda.’

Darren loved to show her off to his friends like some trophy he’d won.’

“He bought her all the latest fashions; she never questioned his business deals and had no idea that her boyfriend was one of the most feared men in Newcastle.’

“He would send her off to Paris France, or to Rome in Italy; in fact any where she wanted to get off for a bit of sun and pampering. They went off to Columbia last month and unbeknown to her she was carrying over four pounds of cocaine back

Inside what she thought were Jars of facial cream. They were to anyone who inspected them but at the bottom they contained the drugs. Tanya was perfect because she didn’t look like a mule carrying drugs and her stunning good looks meant that she could walk past the customs without being checked. Once home the drugs were removed from the jars and she could use as much of cream in them as she liked.

For the last eighteen months Tanya had been carrying drugs through customs.

Sometimes Darren would tell her that she would pick up a package on her way back it was wrapped like a birthday present which he said was for his mother but it was ten kilo’s of Cocaine.’

This time she would be carrying something back for Colin Sarin, who was the drug baron in Cost Adeje. Colin kept a very low profile and was rarely seen in public.

He owned a lot of properties in Tenerife and was a very wealthy man.’

They checked their luggage in and headed to the departure lounge to meet Harry Buck and Melvyn Gunn. He was flying first class with Tanya whilst the two men would be flying in the economy seats. What time are we flying asked Melvyn as Darren bought the Times newspaper and began to read it.

“He looked up and said seven o’clock I think; relax Mel we will be with our friends real soon and they are going to be in for a real shock. I’ve asked Colin to do some checking to find out where they are staying so there will be no hiding place for them.

I want you to take care of them all when we get there. But first I want you to get my money back so don’t damage the goods too much until they tell you where the money is hidden. Melvyn Gunn stood six feet two in his bare feet he was athletic looking, with powerful shoulders and muscular arms. Melvyn was a former commonwealth God medallist in the Judo. He could snap a bone with a quick thrust of his foot or break an arm in a throw. He could also inflict terrible pain by slow strangulation.

Harry Buck had the more conventional ways of extracting information.  

Tanya was looking in the duty free shops as the call was made for her flight she paid for her perfume then ran towards the departure lounge again.
