Claire returned with Christopher to find that her sister had packed her cases.

“Where are you going?

“We are leaving, you can stay here for the rest of your holiday, I am sure you will be okay.

“Where is my husband?

“He left two hours ago; said Marty; and I now know everything Claire.”

“I’m sorry Christopher; but we will never see you again unless you come to our house on your own. I will set up a trust fund for you so when you are old enough you will have a good start in life.

“But, why Uncle Marty?

“When you’re older I will explain; you are too young now to understand.”

Pat and Marty left for Faro Airport. They were going home.


Six months later a van stopped outside a park where two masked men got out; they opened the doors and dragged two men from the back. They had duck tape over their mouths and their feet were tied.

The men held a shotgun to the throats of the two men and told them to undress. The men stripped off their clothing and stood naked in the darkness. Two pairs of hand cuffs were placed on the men so they were spooned together then they were frog marched into the park and chained to the round about. “What goes around comes around; said one of the masked men.”

One of the men taped a letter to the back of Michael Douglas and Christopher Dunbar.; the letter gave details about the two men one a blackmailer; the other a rapist“Now said one of the masked men; try explaining this to the police. The men got back into the van and drove away.
