The second Zoe thriller.
OK. So the story is about Alistair’s mother seeking revenge on Zoe for killing her son.
She’s not the only one.
Zoe is or was an assassin. She had a substantial number of kills to her credit, she doesn’t share numbers so we won’t find out exactly how many, and there are others who seek revenge too.
One is co-incidentally, the head of the intelligence service John’s friend Sebastian works for, a man by the name of Worthington, who had a twin brother whom she killed by mistake.
He has been using his position in intelligence to track the woman who executed his brother for some time, and being in Venice at the time of the Alistair affair, catches sight of Zoe recovering in a hospital after requesting to meet Sebastian’s newest recruit.
Of course, Sebastian is playing fast and loose with the truth, as always, but the damage is done.
Zoe aka Mary Anne aka Chantal is not being hunted by three different people and has just had a bounty put on her head guaranteeing even more people searching for her.
All while heading to a meeting in Marseilles about a freelance hit.
Today’s writing, with a target, firmly painted on Zoe’s back, 1,991 words, for a total of 5,601.
