Finding his wallet there now who he is so Rocco is sent to his flat were he finds Lizzie but not the money. They take her to but not to the same place. All the time Lizzie is playing the part of Harry’s dumb girlfriend.
Chapter FortyTwo-Harry is untied and then put in yet another car, and hopes that Agent MacAvoy’s men are still following. On the Jersey shoreline he’s told to get into a boat and when he gets on the boat he’s serched again this for anything metal thar could a a bug. The boat then heads out into the river, then the boat’s engines are cut and it starts to drift with current.
In the main cabin he’s show a man, a man in a smart suit over a dress shirt, striped tie secured with a monogrammed pin. He asks the man if he’s Max to which the man says No. The man asks Harry want he want’s Harry says he wants to give back the money.
Then tells the man some of the truth, leaving out a few things, as he talks he sees the letters on the tiepin which are EB, could it be Enzo the man calls out Karl the man who untied Harry and put him on the boat, his job now is watch Harry as the man makes a call
Chapter FortyThree – Max feels reassured, Rocco has searched Harry’s apartment and found nothing to tie them to him and his brothers, the girl is locked up safe. Enzo then calls he tells him that if they had let Harry use the restroom none of this would happened. But were the money Rocco never found it, So Max says scare him and interrogate them both him and the girl.
Chapter FortyFour- EB (Enzo) asks Harry why he took the money and were its now, Harry tells him, EB is very skept about the whole thing so he gets Carols in, Carols stands over Harry as Karl goes to mix concrete and EB asks Harry once if he’s told them everything. Then there is the sound of a chopper over head the boat is running without lights and helmsman switchs them on and away the helicopter goes.
Harru does want to be listed at the AFTRA/SAG obituary page so kicks out at Carols and ends up in the Hudson river swiming for his life.
Chapter FortyFive-Enzo calls Max and tells him that Harry is the river and they may never find him.
What I think- Well everything is comming together, Harry and the brothers have meet and Lizzie is being held somewere in the hope of bring rhem all down. I am enjoying the the back and forth in each chapter how they follow. But like I said before we have kind of lost track of Carter Allinson the guy at the start of the book. And yes I know have only done four chapters this time around, but Harry swimming for his life makes a bit of dramatic cliffhanger.
