Finish the story begins with:

“Delphine always wanted to pilot her father’s plane and when he forgot his keys on her tenth birthday, she knew that taking off would be easy.”

 The plane taxied along the runway and crashed into the hanger, costing her father thousands of pounds. In spite of this she had never lost her obsession with aircraft and she was now a very accomplished pilot.
The Brigadier introduced Delphine to Marg and her team and outlined his plans for the assault on the Miners Hill complex.
“I have reliable information of a huge stash of bullion and cash secreted here, the proceeds of drug trafficking. The object is to smash the drug factory and capture or kill the Dickus brothers. This will save thousands of young lives from the evils of drug addiction. The rewards for success are huge as the proceeds will be shared in bonuses for all.”
Then from the depths of the Brazilian jungle a wolf howled eerily, breaking the silence of the jungle.
Doctor Dickus was in the complex with his pet American wolverine.

“Are you laughing at me?”

This amazing picture postcard of two laughing flowers, with the cryptic message on the back arrived on the Brigadier’s desk. The sender was a mystery as the card was unsigned. He smiled at his secretary. “I think I know where this came from, did you email everyone to attend the meeting next week? I forgot Marg was on leave! We will have to reschedule”.

 As an afterthought, the Brigadier had the adhesive on the back of the stamp analysed for DNA. Surprisingly a match came back to a known criminal employed by the rogue scientist Dr Dickus.

All members of the team were summoned to the Mysterious Island at once, Bella had now been missing for a month and Don Fernando was very angry. The Brigadier insisted Marg return at once as she was the last person to have been in contact with Bella.
