In Hamburg, Germany, it was twenty to ten in the morning of April 1, 1971. A beautiful and elegant woman eye color deep sky enters the office of the consul of Bolivia and patiently waiting to be addressed.
While he is doing anteroom, indifferent look at the paintings that adorn the office. Roberto Quintanilla, the Bolivian consul, dressed elegantly dark wool suit, it appears in the office and greets struck by the beauty of the woman claiming to be Australian, and who days before had asked for an interview.
For a fleeting moment, both are facing. Revenge appears embodied in a very attractive female face. The woman, lush beauty stares into his eyes and without words extracted a revolver and fired three times. There was no resistance, no struggle, no struggle. The impacts hit the target. In his flight, he left behind a wig, her purse, her Colt Cobra 38 Special, and a piece of paper that read VoD. ELN.
