Are you sure about this?
Yes absolutely, the device is in here. This was one of Kay’s hideout.
At any cost, I told myself. We exited the van as I zipped the vest, and slowly walked towards the seemingly innocent building. As we opened the huge black gate which was guarding the house, Sam gave me the signal to get in.
