Prologue

She lay on a mattress atop a scaffolding platform five metres above the ground. The hand crafted sniper rifle pulled tight against her right shoulder. Through the telescopic sight she could see a cantaloupe on a bird table thirty-five metres away. She squeezed the trigger and felt the rifle kick back through the padding on her shoulder; the sound of the shot echoed through the building.

“High and left” came through the small earpiece.

“Not a great deal, two centimetres up four left.”

Five shots and five cantaloupes later they were satisfied.
