She’s Coming For You – Chapter 27

After listening to the testimony of witness seven, Inspector Maria Sanchez put out a bulletin to all officers, describing the man responsible for all three murders earlier in the day. They would increase security at all points of departure in the city and at the airport and all major railway stations in Galicia.

In the morning, all leave was cancelled and officers would make enquiries at all the hotels in the city, looking for people who had checked out on 21st August.

The man was dangerous and armed. The police primed response units to come to any potential flash point in an instance. The police were on high alert, aware that it would look bad if Spain allowed this assassin to get away.

Some officers had sympathy with what the man had done, after all, he’d stopped a terrorist incident and two jihadis were dead. It was just because he’d shot an American – perhaps he was excited and got carried away with emotion – that all this palaver was taking place.

Americans shot each other in vast numbers per day, so just one more death didn’t add much to the overall figures.
