She’s Coming For You – Chapter 36

The police in Leon had found the hotel on the Plaza del Grano. These constables had already been to fifteen previous hotels before finding the right one, a fair old distance from the train station and not near the tourist sights of the city. The receptionist had remembered the person well, he’d been carrying aContinue reading “She’s Coming For You – Chapter 36”

She’s Coming For You – Chapter 33

Pontevedra is well worth a night’s stop if you’re travelling between Santiago de Compostela and Vigo. The main attraction for me was that traffic is banished from most of the city centre. The current mayor first came into office in 1999 and his philosophy was simple: private property – the car – should not occupyContinue reading “She’s Coming For You – Chapter 33”

The outstanding reason to visit A Coruna is to see the world’s oldest active lighthouse, built by the Romans in the 2nd century and re-clad in the 18th century to protect the old structure. The lighthouse is a wonderful sight, but make sure to walk along the coastline here to experience the pounding of theContinue reading “She’s Coming For You – Chapter 29”

She’s Coming For You – Chapter 25

The new head of the network in A Coruna had many associates. When contacted, all of them had expressed sympathy with the events of earlier in the day and had agreed to help hunt down the person responsible for at least interrupting, and possibly killing, their fellow fighters in the middle of their mission, ofContinue reading “She’s Coming For You – Chapter 25”

She’s Coming For You – Chapter 23

           Pat Walker was no more. Kim Samuels looked back from the hotel mirror. She had folded all the clothes worn earlier in the day inside a black plastic bag, placed inside her rucksack. This was in the cupboard in her room. It was like the matryoshka dolls Samuels had seenContinue reading “She’s Coming For You – Chapter 23”

She’s Coming For You – Chapter 11

The monitors at the police headquarters in Santiago de Compostela showed the large crowds of people around the cathedral, picked up by the closed-circuit TV cameras. The large open square, known as the Praza da Obradoiro, was full of people adorned with scallop shells, carrying rucksacks and thumb sticks, and wearing waterproofs and boots. MostContinue reading “She’s Coming For You – Chapter 11”

She’s Coming For You – Chapter 10

Pat Walker sat back in her seat by the window. She’d had a wonderful time in Valladolid, especially in the Plaza Major later the previous evening. Her new clothes fitted in with those around her and she’d removed her coat, hat, and sunglasses and hoped she blended in.  She helped a small, grey-haired lady putContinue reading “She’s Coming For You – Chapter 10”

She’s Coming For You – Chapter 9

Valladolid has a bewildering array of churches, statues, palaces, and plazas. I started in the Plaza Mayor, built after a fire in the 16th century. The buildings are all painted in a rich red colour, including the Ayuntamiento or City Hall, which takes pride of place on the northern side. This plaza was the firstContinue reading “She’s Coming For You – Chapter 9”

She’s Coming For You – Chapter 8

Pat Walker had a single seat for her journey to Valladolid from Burgos. She placed her bag on the rack and glanced through the window at the police presence on the platform. According to the posters, a tourist had been attacked two days ago near this station. There was no description of the attacker, butContinue reading “She’s Coming For You – Chapter 8”

She’s Coming For You – Chapter 7

The tall man with three day’s growth of beard leaned against the black flag on the wall and listened to his friend talking on a satellite phone. Rapid bursts of Arabic were being exchanged as the evening sunshine came through the blinds and cast a shadow over the paintings on the wall. There was aContinue reading “She’s Coming For You – Chapter 7”
