Enzo just wants to send Rocco but Max says sending Harry and the money will make Villiers feel safe then bang Rocco steps in, Harry will play along as they have Lizzie
Chapter SeventyOne – In the vault Harry is laying down thinking about how to move the money, when Rocco comes in, Harry asks for a bottle of red wine, razor, soap and clean clean clothes.
What I Think – So we got Carter the guy that was lead into the book, for all of five minutes and bang his now dead, I have the feeling that Mr McCallum was to sure who to start his book with so that’s why we have both Carter and Harry.
Now Lizzie who started out as strong powerful female cop has become somewhat of a football being kicked into bed frist by Harry, so she could get to do the fatching and carrying and now Max for what I not to sure, it did give him a hart attrak but Lizzie counld’nt have know that.
