Thriller Thursday - Sneak Peek from Storm Warning

Friday November 27th, 8:16 A.M. Washington Heights
33rd Precinct Detective Unit

   Frank Cummins scanned the paperwork and looked up at Kelli. “Larsen wants to drag you down to Colombia on the off chance this woman is willing to turn Garcia over to the DEA. Is he nuts?”
  “Maybe, but this may be our only chance of locating Garcia, Frank. Shit, it’s not like I’m going into this blind. Larsen already has a team on the ground in Medellin, and they know where this woman is staying.”
  Frank leaned back in his chair and crossed his arms. “Well if he’s got all that, why in the hell does he need you?”
  Kelli moved to one of the two chairs in the office and sat. “Larsen thinks I might have a better shot at convincing this woman to give him up. I tried to tell him that I don’t know how I can do that, but he believes she’ll listen to me.”
  “I don’t like it. Why can’t they get one of their female agents to do this? It’s bad enough I had to lose you to this Task Force he put together.”
  “If it gets me closer to finding Garcia, then I need to at least try, Frank. You of all people should understand that.”
  He leaned forward, arms on his desk and nodded. “Yeah, I understand. I don’t like it, but I get it. When are you leaving?”
  She leaned back and sighed. “Monday morning. We’re supposed to arrive in Medellin around two in the afternoon. Larsen has his team meeting us, along with a contingent of National Police. When I asked him why we needed an escort, he shrugged and said it was just a precaution.”
  “A precaution for what?”
