Setup is Everything

The news shows like to depict Sudden Death Army members as nutjobs. There’s nothing insane about us. All of our operations are coordinated, with specific outcomes mapped out. Every detail of an assassination is planned. My last one, in Manhattan, took four months to set up. Once I had found the right apartment to shoot from, I got to know the girl who lived there well enough that she eventually gave me my own key.

On the day of the assassination, I told her she should go out of town.

Sloppy, I know, but she didn’t take the advice anyway.
