If you wish, you can go to BOOKS instead, and read from the beginning, to here, chaprter 5, just posted today also.

The thick plottens!







- CHAPTER 5 - THE PLAN -


How could this lowly son of a Rigger possibly ‘sucker’ this sophisticate, this ‘man of the world’ into being the ‘scapegoat’ of a diabolical scheme?

scapegoat - noun

(in the Bible) a goat sent into the wilderness after the Jewish chief priest had symbolically laid the sins of the people upon it (Lev. 16).
• a person who is blamed for the wrongdoings, mistakes, or faults of others, esp. for reasons of expediency.

HOW?

It was so simple, so mundane, so matter-of-fact, that the answer was actually BEAUTIFUL!

G - R - E - E - D ! In the immortal words of William Shakespeare - “There lies the rub!”

Like all who are Rich and Famous, Alvin thrived on AVARICE - if he had even an inkling that he could amass an additional fortune, especially in the range of a Billion Dollars or more - perhaps even Trillions - with a modest investment of only Millions - would he BITE? You bet your sweet ARSE he would!

Was he aware of the current Black Market dealing of “Blood Diamonds?” SURELY! If he thought that it were possible to covertly get his sweaty palms on a vast supply of them, and savor them secretly, not unlike a crooked Art Collector admires his stolen Masterpieces, would he drool over such a possibility? I’ll bet Alvin is licking his chops already!

So - we have the Trophy Fish - Alvin. We have the Un-resistible Bait - Sandy. The Incredulous Creel will hold the Prize - Diamonds. But, what kind of Unbreakable Test Line will we use? What Raffish Reel will we employ? Will a ‘Shakespeare Deuce’ suffice? What Rapacious Rod will endure? Will we require an Outrigger? What Size must the Boat be? How long will the Struggle last? Can he be physically Landed?

Questions - questions - QUESTIONS!

THE PLAN -

PHASE 1 - Cindy must meet Alvin, impress him - earn his trust - probably sleep with him - become his closest confidante - obtain the necessary secret documents - then - BETRAY HIM AND ESCAPE SAFELY! No small task! But, like Barbara Bain in the ancient TV Series ‘Mission Impossible” - she was also a Masteress of Disguise!

PHASE 2 - Cindy must be the one and only person that introduces myself and Wally to Alvin. A really good, believable LIE will be necessary here. We, in turn, must be really convincing, with the “DEAL” which we offer him. Another great subterfuge must be accomplished.

PHASE 3 - Each and every detail of the Plan A - which we tell him - must be calculated to the Nth degree, in order to convince him that it is infallible; so the Real Plan B - to accomplish A, and have Alvin himself left ‘holding the bag’ - BLAMED - or - DEAD! Preferably the latter, as he would be one MEAN ADVERSARY!

There you have it - three major, but complex Phases - now, all we have to do is - PERFECT THE PLAN - by developing the itsy-bitsy, teenie-tweenie ‘Ant Steps’ - utilizing the K-I-S-S Principle -

“KEEP IT SIMPLE STUPID!”

Greed surely has taken over this world, with the high gas prices food price, housing going astray, many people being pushed out of their homes. This is a good book I only read Chapter 5, but got much out of it too. It says a lot that needs to be said.
