‘Here, have a look at this.’
George peered into the Polaroid photograph thrust into his hands.
Gibralter-like snow capped mountains on either side nestled a remote valley through which flowed serene blue waters. Beyond which stood a magnificent Georgian palace, its reed thin spires zooming into the clouds above, the icy waters below capturing its ethereal beauty.
A paradise on earth…a dream in stone…an ode to humankind’s creativity.
‘Been staying here since the escape. Machine gun toting guards, sniffer dogs, automatic alarms, electrified fences…the works.’
George let out a slow whistle.
Alex Mathews. Hunting him down would be infinitely pleasurable.
