Across Antiguas northern shore, lights were flickering on one by one. Jane tightened the seat belt, as the pilot announced the final approach. When she reached the hotel, she would call Todd to get the results of the Houston Medical Examiners autopsy. The plane swooped over a dark bay. A moment later it touched down then taxied to the gate. Jane stood, removed her carryon from the overhead compartment, and slung it from her shoulder. With her hand through the strap, she held her leather purse on top of it, while gripping the railing of the steps with her free hand. She entered the terminal, and almost immediately caught sight of Wally in the sparse crowd. His grim expression as he came toward her warned that he was not there by coincidence. Taking long strides, he closed the distance between them. Good evening. He took the bag from her shoulder. You have other luggage Her eyes wide, Jane searched his face unable to speak. No, she answered, finally. Then, No, she repeated and shook her head. Good. He caught her elbow, and began steering her toward the exit. She stopped, pulling her arm from his grasp. Has something happened to mother or Timmy They are fine. How did you find me Simple deduction. He glanced around, and said, Now we need to get out of here. Well talk over dinner. I want to know why youre here. Cary asked me to find out what I could about Renaissance Trust. He took her arm once more and they continued toward the doors. I spoke to their lawyer this morning, and a thug tailed me after I left his office. I dont think they want anyone looking at them. He rushed her from the building. There. Lets get that taxi.

The driver opened the trunk, and placed Janes carryon inside. After they entered back, he stepped quickly to the front of the car, and slid behind the wheel. Two men sprang from the shadows. One grabbed the drivers door before he could close it. With his other hand, he reached inside and shoved a revolver fitted with a silencer against the drivers temple. Phut! The acrid smell of gun smoke filled the car. The gunman shoved the drivers limp body aside and jumped behind the wheel. Meanwhile, his accomplice had forced his way into the back seat, and was pressing a gun into Wallys ribs. The tires squealed as the car sped away from the curb. Janes screams rose in a high continuous wail. The driver glanced over his shoulder. Miguel! Shut her up! His accomplice leaned across Wally, and with his free hand slapped Jane hard. The blow landed with a loud crack, and made her head snap back. The sedan barreled eastward. Jane huddled in the corner, making soft, little snubbing sounds, too terrified to mop the warm salty stream trickling from the corner of her mouth. The car turned south and soon was bumping along a dark road running beside a mangrove creek. With furtive, sideways glances, Jane observed Wallys rigid silhouette.
