I thought this was such a good read and I thoroughly enjoyed it! I loved the basic idea of the article, the way you maintained for the reader the intrigue and mystery surrounding it and the way you managed to weave the suspense, action and excitment of everyday Ci5 business with the question mark over what Bodie is up to.

A really clever idea and, as I say, I really enjoyed it. Thanks a lot!

thanks so much S2K! Can I let you into a little secret? At first I wrote the story of the article, thinking that was going to be the extent of the plot. I finished - 5,000 words. Panic set in. I needed to find another 10,000 for the BB. So I created the bomb plot and wove it into the relationship story. And for ages I worried whether it had been the right thing to do. For you to remark on that very 'weaving' means a great deal to me, so thank you very much indeed. xx

It was very well done so I'm glad I mentioned it! I also forgot to say that I loved the Green Shield Stamp line, that really made me laugh. I've heard a 'sandwich short of a picnic' but never that one.
