Finish the story begins with:

Zeus was not having a good day and he made sure everyone knew it.”

This classical pun was delivered by the Professor, who had joined up with Marg’s party in Sao Paulo, Brazil.
“Since the famous statue of Christ the Redeemer, one of the city’s most recognisable landmarks, was damaged by lightning we know how powerful Zeus can be” remarked Marg,
A savage storm erupted around the helicopter as they flew over the remote Brazilian interior. The copter was buffeted by fierce winds, then flashes of lightning lit up the sky as the pilot fought to keep control.
Marg and her colleagues were on their way from Sao Paulo, Cumbica airport to Minas Gerais, a large state in Brasil where the mysterious Miners Hill, known locally as Mineiros Colinia was located. A deserted mysterious village holding many suspected secrets.
Paul Strang shouted to Marg! “Stay cool and still.” Paul had been flying these birds for years and was very experienced. 
Suddenly, “We’ve been hit!”

Finish the story begins with:

“What a tangled web we weave when first we practice to deceive”

Bella reflected on her role in the organisation after her double agent fiasco and now the proposal of marriage she had received from Alberto. She desperately wanted OUT!

Having promised many things to many people, her life was now a tangled web of possibilities.

Marg had been in constant touch with sympathetic advice and support, but Don Fernando had intimated that something very big was in the offing that would involve the entire family.
Marg now in London, was on leave after a very concentrated series of meetings and briefings. Hillary had done a splendid job of controlling the detective agency and Marg was set to offer her a partnership.
News came from the Brigadier that the Brazilian operation was going ahead, sadly without the late Colonel Tom, who’s death from a heart attack came as a complete shock.
Marg prepared herself to do battle with the devious Dickus brothers yet again.
