CHAPTER FIVE HUNDRED and SEVENTY-FOUR
Their subterfuge was underway. Bernie, Cliff, and Joseph had already lured a car load of watchers. Patrick would take the next set of them.
It was now time for the military operation to get underway.
Of course, they expected people to watch what they were doing. They were even taking someone from the Polish equities with them. There would be less watchers, which was a good thing in Vince’s mind.
Around him, the team was stretching or checking their supplies and gear. They’d worked together long enough that everyone was familiar with each other’s “get ready” routine. Vince went into the kitchen to make sure the appliances were turned off. The farmhouse’s kitchen was still and quiet.
Matthew met him in the kitchen.
“You ready?” Vince asked.
Matthew nodded. Alex came into the kitchen with them.
“Anything new?” Alex asked.
The men shook their heads in unison. Alex grinned a laugh at the men. They’d been strangers when she’d put this team together. These two, along with Joseph Walter, could now pass as brothers any day of the week.
“Seth said something about scans?” Vince asked.
“He and Raz are looking at the construction of the tunnel,” Alex said. “Seth has contacts — well, basically everywhere. He got in touch with the Army Corps of Engineers. They think it should be safe for us.”
The men looked visibly relieved.
“Baring armaments, of course,” Alex said.
“You mean if someone blows up the tunnel it will blow up?” Matthew asked.
“Precisely,” Alex said with a grin. “Come on. It’s time.”
The men followed her out of the kitchen. The team was waiting for them in the living room.
“Ready?” Matthew looked at Alex.
She gave him a curt nod.
“Let’s do this thing,” Matthew said.
They filed out of the living area and into the back of large van. Vince took the wheel, and Matthew took the passenger seat. They started off to the mine.
