I looked down. ‘Bloody hell, Newf. You’re a sodding genius.’ I was sitting on a marble slab that had four supporting pillars, coincidentally the size of four stacks of bullion. I scraped the cement coating with my screwdriver and then hit it with a hammer. The cement fell off, revealing sparkling treasury gold. I dropped the tools and hugged Newf. Stupidly, we yelped in excitement like a pair of teenagers. The door opened and in walked Zaskin. ‘I take it you’ve struck gold,’ he snarled. He had a cannon in his hand. ‘You ain’t pointin’ that piece at Bill are yah?’ Newf said softly. ‘Cuz ’e ’as a ’abit of takin’ ’em off people an’ makin’ ’em eat it.’ Close Panel
