Double in Trouble – Excerpt 43
As the helicopter started to lift off, Shultz and Mayhew came running out of the trees and started shooting at the helicopter. But it was a worse than futile attempt to stop us, we had too much height on them.
Apparently Tommy and his boy’s hearing the gunfire, assumed that Kat and myself were in trouble, so they came at the run, firing as they came, they were well armed and prepared for trouble. I had no clue as to what was taking place, I was heading for home.
Hearing the exchange of shots, some of the bidders decided to intervene, they got very short shrift from Tommy’s group who were all S.A.S trained. Several of them were reported killed also according to information I later received Abromski / Schultz and Mayhew were found dead in the cellar, shot in the back of the head, execution style. Whether by the outraged bidders or British Intelligence I had no idea, other than that it couldn’t have happened to two nicer guys.
I had been operational in Britain for several years as a sleeper agent, but this operation was deemed important enough by my masters for me to blow my cover.
A week after Kat had returned from Poland, none the worse for her experience, a package arrived for her at her Organisation’s Headquarters. Once it had been screened, it was delivered to her, inside was a single red rose, slightly the worse for wear and a beautiful red silk and lace negligee from a renowned Parisian fashion house and a card which said, ‘Sorry! Love Ivan!’ She muttered ‘Bastard!’ under her breath and then burst out laughing. The Intelligence arena in which they worked was not that large, who knows maybe their paths would cross again.
