Fedeltà #242

Tony still crawled past the scene, then barked at Paolo “Cancel that fucking transfer NOW! We’ve been double-fucking-crossed!”

This was where Paolo’s timing calculations were weakest. Realistically there had to be some timing leeway otherwise Tony wouldn’t have agreed to paying the ransom without some chance to abort things if he didn’t get Terry back. Paolo couldn't be seen to be delaying the transfer cancellation for fear of giving himself away. He suggested waiting to see what the kidnappers had to say about current developments.

“Fuck waiting!... Cancel the fucking transfer!”

“I can’t Tony... there’s no network coverage!”

    There's either no network or that's pretty good thinking from Paulo! Great stuff Neville.
