Double in Trouble – ( Excerpt 11 )
‘Mayhew, who purports to work for the Foreign Office And his side-kick, Schultz, who Mayhew says is C.I.A. Personally speaking I wouldn’t trust either one of them as far as I could throw them, they are just a little too confident.
‘This may seem a silly question, in view of your last statement, but do you have a specific reason for not trusting them. ‘Yes!, I certainly do, as I told you i’m a pro – photographer, well in my business you do all kinds of work, using all types of people, in time, I suppose, you develop a photographic memory.’
‘The two Taliban, as soon as the lights came on, I knew them. I’ve checked them out, they are Film and Tv extras, based in Birmingham, That’s how I know I’ve been conned, that’s the one thing they didn’t plan for!’ I explained. ‘Have you got a contact number for these men?’ queried Kat.
‘I can easily get hold of one, But I have a feeling that they were only hired for the one – off part, purely to frighten and intimidate me, to set me up for the real con, which was my release,’ I tried to explain as best I could, but I wasn’t convinced myself.
‘And if I was to ask you, now ,today, where you had been imprisoned, what would your answer be, Think carefully?’ said Kat. ‘I don’t have to think about it, I’m quite certain it is somewhere close to Birmingham, probably on the outskirts. That would explain taking me to the Airport in the back of a van, It wasn’t that we were in a hostile country, more a question that I might see something that I might recognise later!’ I stated confidently.
