The Story Starts...
The thunderous roar of high performance motorbikes was the last thing they wanted to hear. Especially outside their 2-story lakeside home.
The Chinese billionaire and his wife had chosen a leafy and exclusive suburb to avoid riff-raff like that. So when the deep throated roaring continued, he strode to the front window.
“Lian,” he called out to his wife, shouting above the din. “There must be 20 motorbikes out there. What on earth is—”
Before he could finish, his cell phone rang. A cultured voice said “Listen carefully, Mr. Hoy. Go to your study window and look outside.”
“Who is this?” he demanded.
There was no response.
“Who is this?” repeated Hoy, louder this time.
After a short pause, the voice repeated the instruction. “Go to your study window and look outside.”
Hoy obeyed, taking the cell phone with him.
On reaching the study, he padded across the deep pile carpet to the window and pulled the draw cord of the full-length curtains. As they whooshed open, a bullet smashed through the window.
