Installment 3.6

Night of Fire, continued

McDevitt has his own, private list of tasks.

Bona-Brown’s parents had split up forty years ago.  They had been a two song sensation back in the 1970s and then been famous for being famous.

They worked the party circuit where elites hosted “reliable” celebrities.  As both parents were somewhere to the left of Lenin, they were both considered highly reliable.

Sandy, Bona-Brown’s father was shot in the back of the head while flirting with a girl young enough to be his granddaughter.  In the flurry, nobody thought to detain or observe the young man who pulled the trigger.

Cherry, Bona-Brown’s mother was shot in the back of the head as she was entering the AMG super-sports car of a local financier.  It is suspected that the act was accomplished by the valets but it was never determined with certainty.

Spirochete’s father, head of the immense Caliche Canyon winery was executed in the bedroom of his mistress.

Spirochete’s oldest brother was executed in the bleachers while watching his son play basketball at an exclusive prep school.

Spirochete’s daughter was executed in her dorm room.

Spirochete’s wife was overseas.  Spirochete’s mother, the matriarch of the family seldom left Fortress Caliche.  Both survived.

None of them were suffocated.  That method is the mark of cowardly, Cambodian Communists.

They were all shot in the back of the head with a pistol.  While it is cliche, that is the MO of a Cartel hit.  McDevitt wanted the other side to know exactly who was fighting back.

Nothing is more personal than war.
