Finish the story begins with:

I watched the vulture looking at me hungrily as I lay on the ground bleeding and injured.”

The prisoner was relating a narrow escape from the jaws of death, during the fighting at the laboratory in Alaska.

“I took a shot in the leg and I was unable to get up.”

The interrogator looked on, nodding silently.

“There was another shot, the bird fell dead, and I was captured.”

The Brigadier had been personally supervising the questioning of the captives. This man was believed to be Dr. Dickus’s right hand man, in possession of much information. A top flight General in the lab-rat’s organisation.

Where is the headquarters based in London? Where are the remainder of the drug factories located? Who are the London contacts?”

The relentless questioning continued.

Meanwhile Marg had enjoyed time off. Little did she realise how close she was to the action.
After an urgent personal request from the Brigadier, Marg, with a London operative Sam, were on their way to Kensington.
