Speed of reply to texts would be important for Tony. Paolo’s text came back fast.
'Glad ur ok boss. Marcia, fredo, tipo, priest dead (real sorry boss). Franco, cattaneo, sofia might not make it. Thought terry dead too, ain't he? Other injured probably ok. Tell me what to do. Paolo'
Never the chattiest, Paolo had nonetheless communicated plenty. His news should have been devastating. Marcia was Tony's wife of 18 years, Sofia her sister and the others were part of the twins's extended family.
Tony was barely ruffled.
'If you ain't dead Terry, you might wish you was.' he thought.
