Cynthia was ready. It was time to put the nail in the coffin, to make sure Mortley paid. She would leave early morning and reach in time to go to the TV station with Banerjee Uncle. He had already arranged everything. They had approached News Now for Banerjee Uncle knew the Editor in chief of the channel, Mr. Swamy and he could be trusted.
