Final Run

By James Pattinson

So, what’ll it be? 

It was exactly what Blade wanted; if he made good use of the ten thousand pounds he might never again feel obliged to take dicey jobs for people like Korvan.

The only snag was that he didn’t much care for the particular job he was being offered. True, Korvan had assured him that there was nothing to it, but he had heard assurances like that before.

Still, he needed that ten thousand. Maybe he would do this one last job and call it a day.

Maybe he would make it the final run.

James Pattinson was born on December 15, 1915. During World War II, he volunteered for the Royal Artillery in 1939 and was transferred to the maritime army to serve as a gunner on Defensively Equipped Merchant Ships in 1941. After the war, he returned to poultry farming in Norfolk. In 1950, he began working on his first book, Soldier, Sail North, which was published in 1954. During his lifetime, he wrote over 100 books including Last in ConvoyObituary for Howard Gray, and The Unknown. He died on October 18, 2009 at the age of 93.
