“Thank you. After breakfast we will be on our way.’


Chief superintendant Ralph Mason called for a progress meeting and Rob Black was in attendance. Rob gave his report then told his boss that he was in liaison with Gerald McGill from Northumbria police who were at this very moment making enquiries into the whereabouts of Darren Ingles who they believed pulled off the robbery of the security van.

“Good work; keep at it Black, we need results; the longer we leave this the less chance we have of recovering the money and once circulated we will never trace it.’

“It has been three days since the robbery;’ the likelihood of recovering all of the money is very short odds now sir; but we can still bring those who did it to justice.’

Have all the airports checked to see if anyone has left the country that is on the wanted list.’

“Yes sir.’

“Alright Black dismissed.’

“Thank you sir.’


 Black left Ralph Masons office and went into the main operations room where his men were working on the case.

“Listen up I want you to ring al the airports to find out if any of the suspects on your wanted list have left the country. Any known villains as well they maybe taking cash out of the country. Get on that straight away.’

“Yes Gov they all replied.’

Rob rang Gerald McGill and asked him for an update.

Gerald informed him that Mr Ingles was out of the country. They didn’t know when he would be back. We did however search the premises but came up with nothing.

Ingle’s is a sly old fox but we will get him.’

Thanks’ for your co-operation sir.’

“I will let you know if we round up anyone.’

“Rob Black put down the phone; then asked if anything had come back regarding the photo-fit picture posted in all the newspapers.

“We had a couple of names Gov’ but we checked and nothing doing’

Ask the papers to circulate that photo-fit again; someone knows this bony faced bastard and I want him; he could be the key to “Operation Payback.” If we can get him we can get the rest I’m sure.’

“Tell them there is a reward for his whereabouts; someone will sell him out.’




Jenny woke at eight o’clock she had a bath then ate some breakfast before getting ready it had rained through the night. Looking outside she saw that the sun was poking its nose out and there was very little cloud. She put on her orange outfit that she’d bought.’

“Where are you going young lady?’

“I’m going out for a drive with Paul.’

“So are you seeing this A-rab asked her father?’

“What if I am dad; what’s so wrong in that. The bloody English doctor was a rude snob. He humiliated me dad in front of his friends, so I knocked him on his arse.’

“Good for you laughed her father.

“Well at least the A-rab brought you safely home.’
