‘The plan is ruined.’
He glanced at Drew’s corpse. A look of annoyanceflashed acrosshis eyes, but the man’s personalmission superseded his emotions.
‘Do I have to move onto the next plan? No, this situation means that all possible routes have changed. Even if I don’t use Drew, there’s a high chance that the plan will fail.’
