SHOT FROM THE DARK
Eva's notes for the mission.
Provisional report by Janice Northfleet
Mission Start Date 13th July 1982
Flashback: Dorian at the "club"
We have a new case - Mr. Benjamin Holgstein?, an Israeli microbiologist, arrived at Heathrow on the 10th July. He hired a car and set off to see his daughter Anna, a teacher, in Arundel, but he never arrived. He is the head of the biological weapons programme, which the Israelis don't have.
On the 3rd of June, the Israeli ambassador, Shlomo Arglov?, was shot while shopping near the embassy. The bullet was an old flintlock pistol ball. The ambassador has gone back to Israel for treatment, as ahve his staff. Interestingly, he is Holgstein's brother.
Janice reads the bullet - the Ambassador steps out of a limo on a London street; he is shot in the chest. A reflection shows the shooter - a shortish "Roundhead", who looks vaguely familiar. Janice sketches him and sends the others off.
Janice and Perter visit the street where the shooting occurred. A woman is watching them poke around. When Janice asks her further, she claims to live locally (East European accent?). Try the shop in front of the incident - the ambassador was visiting the proprietor discretely about a collector of of Babylonian items in Yorkshire. No one saw the attacker arrive or leave - the bodyguards looked confused: there is no alley to escape down.
We set off for Arundel to visit Holgstein's daughter.
