Six Sentence Sunday

#3 Thank you to everyone who keeps coming back to read my snippets every Sunday! I truly appreciate it. I hope you enjoy this week's offering.

It comes from my current novel Duty Calls and continues right on from where we left off last week.
When Rafe arrives in the UK to design some retirement chalets commisioned bt his friend Arthur, he didn't realise those chalets would be at the one place he never wanted to see again.

***
Arthur’s sudden air of innocence didn’t fool Rafe.  Arthur and his boss, Vince Parker, carried the responsibility for England’s national security. So getting rid of a scumbag like Cadmore would have been child’s play. 

“I suppose you invoked some national security code, somehow.”

“I do believe the papers mentioned something about drug overlords.” Arthur shifted from studying the countryside to staring at Rafe. “I doubt you heard, the 
executors traced his widow, who now lives at the Hall.”
***
Duty Calls is available HERE & HERE

Oo, wonder how he'll react to that last line? Great teaser.

Another Rafe! How fun! But yours seems a bit more upset. Sounds like he's in for a rough time because of this widow. Peaked my interest! Great six!
