Not so ‘humble’
While David may have considered Boris the so-called humble policeman at the time, Boris, being the suspicious person he was, knew he was dealing with a foreign agent.
And he knew in time that letting him go provided two benefits, time to investigate who he really was, and how knowing him could be beneficial. Pity then when after a few meetings in various cities in Europe, news came of David’s untimely death.
Thus, to get a call from a man who was supposed to be dead was intriguing, to say the least, and from one who was now married to a person of interest, the new Lady Featherington.
And to be asked about three Russian ‘maids’ piqued his interest.
Of course, the same could not be said for Prendergast who learns of this dubious Russian connection from his God-daughter Susan, complaining about David threatening her staff.
It’s the last thing on David’s mind as he heads off to Monaco, propelled by an anonymous text message with a place a date and a time. Normally he wouldn’t care, but it appeared someone was trying to tell him something.
He would soon find out.
Booked into a hotel near the famous casino, and at a loose end, he goes to mingle with the rich and famous. But not as himself, but his version of going ‘undercover’.
