GETTING THE JOB DONE RIGHT
At the beginning of this book you read an account of an actual hit going down.
as you probably noted, most of the detail concerning the events covered concerned the efforts to conceal the true identity, avoid public attention, and make sure no incriminating evidence was left behind.
The kill is the easiest part of the job. People kill one another every day. It takes no great effort to pull a trigger or plunge a knife. It is being able to do so in a manner that will not link yourself or your employer to the crime that makes you a professional.
Public assassinations are sometimes necessary but are messy and draw immediate attention. Quiet, one-on-one confrontations are much to be preferred, especially when your skills and expertise give you a distinct advantage in the situation.
Why did our hit man choose to fly and rent a car when other methods of t4ransportation were available?> Why go to all the trouble to use elaborate disguises and keep changing false identifications? Why register at the motel for only two days and pay cash in advance>? Why let an incompetent desk clerk get away with overcharging him for food and improperly preparing his order?
And why, after the job was completed and he knew he had plenty of time to make his escape, did he go to so much trouble to dispose of a perfectly good weapon, disguise and a pair of shoes that he could possibly have used again>
Of course, no two jobs will be handled the same, but the following pages will explain why the hit man in this case chose to act as he did... and why the crime remains unsolved.
PART ONE: GETTING THERE
Your expense money, down payment on the contract and complete information about the mark is in your possession. Photographs were provided, and enough information is available for you to make a tentative plan for the assault.
Study the information sheet. Memorize floor plans, descriptions and details. Then, if you feel confident that you won't need to refer to the data again, destroy it in a manner that will prohibit restoration.
If you feel you may need to carry the data with you to the jobsite, mail it yourself and carry the unopened envelope. Even law enforcement officials should be leery of opening sealed mail without probably cause and the necessary legal documents.
Then, just before you leave to complete your assignment, open the envelope, review the contents and destroy in the manner described above. If something goes wrong as the job goes down, you certainly don't want the authorities to find such incriminating evidence in your possession. Your employer wouldn't appreciate carelessness on your part much either.
The next task to be faced is getting yourself and your equipment to the jobsite.
Any travel agent will be happy to make arrangements for travel, lodging and a car rental for you at now charge. Simply call a travel agency, give a false name, tell the agent your destination, when you want to leave, and ask for an open return flight home.
The travel agent will want your phone number to call you back when the information you request is assembled. You can get around giving out your number by telling her you are using a neighbor's telephone or that you're going out for the afternoon and will call her alter in the day to get the information. This way, the agent will see your face for only a few brief minutes when you go down to pay cash for your tickets, which will be prepared in the false name you gave. There will be no record of your true identity, phone number or address, and airlines don't require identification for tickets paid in cash.
However, identification is required for car rental, so don't make such arrangements through a travel agent. And don't make motel reservations in the same name used on your flight tickets. you need not make it any easier than necessary for anyone to identify you between your point of departure and the crime scene.
If for some reason you cannot fly, you may have to drive. Trains and buses are much too slow and the trip would tire you considerably. but if time permits, train and bus may be the safest method available. In any event never use your own automobile as a means to getting to the jobsite. A rental car would work best.
Car rental agencies require a valid driver's license and one major credit car as identification even when you pay cash. This is a security measure for them to guard against theft. So if you plan to rent a car, even for cash, a fake or stolen set of identification is in order. (Make sure you get a car with unlimited mileage and a trunk for locked storage).
Obviously, your risk factor is greatly increased when you drive. Even a minor violation can place your location at a particular time, so the driver's license you use must match the name on the rental contract just in case. God forbid that you should become involved in an accident! But should any situation occur where your face has been clearly seen, placing you in the area where the hit is to go down, either cancel the contract immediately or put it off for a while. Your employer will understand and will be grateful for your precautions.
When using a rental car, always carry enough cash to cover any major breakdowns that may occur. Even though the agency normally foots these bills, this is a part of the price you pay for anonymity.
Sometimes it is good to cover your trail by flying into a large city a few hundred miles from where the hit is to take place. You can rent a car there and travel to the job location. If you choose to travel this way, steal an out of state tag while you are out-of-state. Stolen tags only show up on the police computer of the state in which they are stolen. You will use the tag to replace the rental tag when you go to make the actual hit. In that way, any suspicion or checks on the parked car will not Ben traced back to the rental agency or to you.
TRANSPORTING YOUR TOOLS
You can't work without your tools, and you can't count on being able to purchase them when you get to where you're going. Even with proper false identification, there may be residency requirements or waiting periods, so you need your own, dependable selection of weapons from home.
Of course, you'd never get through airport security with a gun on your person. But you can carry one in your luggage if you notify airport personnel in advance and it will be stored in the cargo compartment. Otherwise, you may have some embarrassing questions to answer as that suitcase does through airport x-rays. But even if you get permission to pack your gun in your luggage, how will explain that little sound muffling tube that is attached to the barrel.
If time allows, you can ship everything UPS or by bus or common carrier, with pickup at the terminal by the addressee (fictitious name) when you arrive. Or, you can use Express Mail -- next day arrival guaranteed -- post office to post office, which may or may not require ID by addressee at time of pick-up.
However you choose to transport your weapons, pack them well! Use a metal, foam-lined box or two or more cardboard cartons packed one inside the other as your shipping container. Disassemble guns and other metal parts and roll them in soft cloth, newspapers, or clothes you plan to wear on the job. Include several extra pairs of rubber gloves and clean work shows, unless you plan to carry these items with you.
If you are driving and for some reason have no choice but to transport these dangerous tools with you in a car, pack well as above and gift-wrap or prepare as if for mailing. Carry the wrapped box in the locked trunk of the car, out of public view, to prevent theft or suspicion. If the package is small enough of it inside a large suitcase or metal footlocker, use a combination lock as a double safety precaution on your outer container. Authorities and crooks alike are known for confiscating keys; however, a search warrant with probable cause may be necessary for the authorities to get you to open the combination lock.
Note: Every item you use on a job should be considered disposable Then you won't have to worry about how to ship these items home again.
You are enroute. Your tools on the way via Express Mail. You are travelling under an assumed name.
Everything you purchase is paid for in cash. Anything you buy is a necessity -- food, lodging, transportation. You will use only bills in small denominations, not crisp new one hundred dollar bills. You don't want to draw any attention to yourself or become memorable.
You are working. This is your job and you are a professional. You will purchase no gifts or souvenirs, nothing that ma7y point a finger to your locations along the way. This means specifically items like pottery labeled "Made in Mexico," shells marked "Souvenir of Florida" and the like.
You will not become involved with women -- on any level -- while you are on assignment. Women have an eerie way of memorizing quickly and in fine detail any man that shows a sexual interest in them. Save pleasure for after business.
You will not drink, even socially, nor will you take any drugs or stimulants. If you need artificial courage, you should try some other career.
You will make no long distance phone calls. The phone company computer will be recording the numbers dialed.
You will be careful of the food you eat and the water you drink. You don't want a case of food poisoning or dysentery to hamper timely accomplishment of your assignment.
You will not draw any unnecessary attention to yourself in any way. You won't over- or under-tip. you won't be drawn into any memorable conversations. You won't exhibit any rude or argumentative behavior. Your profile will be low and nondisruptive for the duration of the assignment. Though inside you are like a wild animal stalking his prey, others may view you as yet another passive wimp! Let them.
If the waiter is too slow, be patient. If the clerk doesn't give back the right change, forget it. If the food is bad, don't eat it. Don't let any little incident cause anyone to remember your face later.
PART TWO: DESTINATION
The excitement is building as your plane comes in for a landing. Where will you stay, and how will you get there?
Unless you know your way around and can use mass transit to your advantage, you will probably need to rent a car. Nothing flashy, and in a solid color. Ask for a city map at the rental agency or purchase one at the airport newsstand if one was not provided by the employer.
A place to stay is the next priority. It can be any motel, fancy or cheap, but it should be in close proximity to the jobsite to prevent excessive travel. In fact, if you can find one within walking or jogging distance of the hit, you can forego the car rental and taxi to the motel (not to the jobsite!). Just don't over or under tip the driver or get into any extensive conversation with him. This is where a disguise can come in handy.
Check into the motel using a fictitious name. Identification is not required when you pay cash. Register for only two days maximum. If you stay is to be longer than two days, change motels and use another name. When you register, use a made-up tag number to correspond to the fictitious address you give.
If you are in town six days, you will have used five different identities -- one for the plane tickets, one for the care rental, and three different names used at three different motels. This should cause some real headaches for anyone trying to pin down your exact location. Especially if you keep changing your appearance as you change your name.
If you are using a car, keep driving to a minimum. In a strange area, your risks of traffic violations and accidents increase tremendously. Just remember, while you are out, to "borrow" a tag for use when you are ready to make your move.
Of course you will have to call for your equipment if you preshipped it to yourself. And you will have to drive, jog or stroll past the places your mark is known to haunt( no pun intended!) After these initial checks you can determine whether you will stick to your original plan or if changes are in order.
Before you leave to do the job, and each time you change motels, you will thoroughly wipe down your room so it will be clean of fingerprints. Make sure you leave no personal items behind that will be proof of your presence. This is a precautionary measure.
As you dress for the job, certain precautions should be taken. Clean tennis shoes should be worn during the job, because the ones you wore before may have traces of soil from your home town which will leave an important clue for the investigators. The shows don't have to be new, just clean. And since the police can take impressions to ascertain height and weight of the criminal, it doesn't hurt to wear a size larger shoe than normal or even add a weight belt to throw off the investigation. Soft soled tennis shoes are quiet and good for running, should the need arise.
Clothing, of course, will have to suit the area, particularly if the job is to be done during the day or in a public place. For night work, you can wear your regular clothing under a pair of overalls if the coveralls will not arouse suspicion in the area.
Wipe down your weapons as you assemble them. Even the inner parts of your guns must be wiped to remo0ve any prints that were left behind during the last cleaning.
Wipe down each bullet and wear rubber gloves as you load the clip. Just in case you leave behind an empty cartridge, you don't want your fingerprints emblazoned on the casing.
After loading the clip, discard that pair of gloves. Do not leave them in your room, but throw then away along the way., Handling the clip may have weakened the thin rubber from contact with metal parts. If they are too weak, or if just a tiny hole or tear has begun, it might become large enough to leave an incriminating partial print at the scene of the crime.
With your luggage and your duffel bag containing your tools in the trunk of your car, the room wiped clean of any clues to your existence, your plan of action firmly in mind, you are ready to go. Your knowledge, guts, reflexes and professionalism will see you through.
When the time is right, make your move. Quietly. Efficiently. Whatever method you choose.
The secret. now that the deed is done, is to stay in total self Control. Don't panic! Don't hurry! Wait until you know beyond any doubt that you have accomplished your assignment. Check for a pulse at both the wrist and throat. Drag the body out of the line of view of windows and doors, so discovery will be delayed. Cover any spots of blood with carefully dropped newspapers or clothing so that, too, will not be visible and arouse the suspicion of anyone peeking inside.
Be absolutely positive that the mark is, indeed, dead. You don't want to rush out too soon and have to wait around to read the morning paper to see if your mission was successful, or read that he survived and sought medical attention.
Take a few minutes to calmly survey the scene for any evidence that you might have left behind. Pick up those empty cartridges that were ejected when you fired your gun.
Did you remove your gloves for any reason?> I hoe not! But many a man has been caught because he thoughtlessly removed his gloves after making the kill to help himself to food or drink from the victim's refrigerator.
If the hit was supposed to look like a burglary, mess the place up a bit and take anything of value that you can carry concealed. if course, you can't keep anything. These items will have to be ditched along with your work clothes and weapon, But any cash you find is yours to pocket.
Exciutement made you a bundle of nerves>? If nature calls, try to control the urge. One man was actually convicted by the print he left on the victim's toilet seat. It seems he had this scar ...
If you have to take a piss, flush the toilet with you gloved fingers. You can't imagine how many idiots will remove their gloves to facilitate the operation of the sipper to take a pee. Without thinking, the flush before pulling the gloves back on ... leaving indisputable evidence to convict them on the flush handle. And believe it or not, the toilet handle is one of the primary sources for prints during the investigation.
Check the victim one final time to make sure your part of the contract is complete before you leave the scene. Then make your exit, usually through the front door. Even if someone sees you casually leaving the victim's house, he has no idea for the reason of your visit or what you have done. And you disguise will conceal your identity.
Walk, don't run, to your car or whatever your planned destination might be.
The first thing you should do when you reach the car is change into another disguise and get out of those work clothes. Check them for bloodstains. If there are none, you can toss them into a charity collection box or trash bin. If the victim's blood is on those clothes, they must be burned or buried.
Of primary importance now, too, is changing the rifling of the murder weapon. This should be done before you leave the crime scene. That way, even if you get picked up or stopped with the weapon in your possession, its ballistics will not match the bullets you left behind in the mark.
Now move your car to some other location where you will not attract attention as you switch the tags and disassemble your gun.
when you are driving, stay calm and obey all traffic rules. Toss your gun parts out at intervals or in various locations about town. From them in lakes or waterways. Bury or sink the gun barrel and silencer in different spots. Crush the plastic housing of the disposable silencer before you discard it.
The shoes you wore should be discarded as carefully as your weapon. You might have left distinct parts behind that will end up as plaster casts. Toss them separately at intervals along the highway. Ever see a single te4nnis how lying in the road? Now you know from whence it came ...
Hide, bury, burn, toss -- but, in any event, do away with every tool and article of clothing that was near the scene of the crime. Even you rubber gloves. Remember, they may have powder residue on them, and they most definitely have your fingerprints on the inside!
If you are flying home, stop and wipe the car for prints and wear driving gloves as you return the car to the rental agency.
If you are driving home, wash the car and vacuum the interior <IMMEDIATELY< I>when you arrive at your destination. Remember why you wore clean tennis shoes? Well, foreign soil from the jobsite is now in the car's interior. It's in the air filter, too, so make sure you clean that as well.
Sound like a lot of unnecessary trouble and precaution? Perhaps. But it's the overcautious who remain at large.
Take, for example, the case of the federal judge slain in Texas in 1978. The contract was for $250,000 and was paid on schedule. The hit was made, fulfilling the contract -- but the contractor was soon apprehended. How? Undisguised, this so-called hit man took a taxi to the jobsite. The taxi driver fingered him! Why? See if you can tell me.
PART THREE: THE AFTERMATH -- GETTING A HOLD ON YOUR EMOTIONS
You made it! Your first job was a piece of cake! Taking all that money for the job was almost like robbery. Yet here y7ou are, finally a real hit man with real hard cash in your pockets and that first notch on your pistol.
Some people would say that a hit man is an emotionless, cold-blooded killing machine that he has no fear and no belief in God. On the contrary, a hit man has a wide range of feelings. He may be excruciatingly tender towards his woman. He may be extremely compassionate towards the elderly or disabled. He may have a strong aversion to the useless killing of wildlife. He may even be religious in his own way.
What the professional lacks is remorse. He feels no guilt.
I'm sure your emotions have run full-scale over the past few days or weeks.
There was a fleeting moment just before you pulled the trigger when you wondered if lightening would strike you then and there. And afterwards, a short burst of panic as you quickly looked around to make sure no witnesses were lurking.
But other than that, you felt absolutely nothing. And you are shocked by that nothingness. You had expected this movement to be a spectacular point in your life. You had wondered if you would feel compassion for the victim, immediate guilt, or even experience direct intervention by the hand of God. But you weren't even feeling sickened by the sight of the body.
The first few seconds of nothingness give you an almost uncontrollable urge to laugh out loud. you break into a wide grin. Everything you have been taught about life and it value was a fallacy. A dirty rotten lie!
Life is notyou know beyond a shadow of a doubt that your own life is just as frail and valueless. What you have done could just as easily and unexpectedly been done to you, despite your fighting ability, your weapons expertise, your efforts to protect yourself. The realization is both sobering and shocking.
Like a machine, you do what is necessary to cover your tracks. As you leave the scene, that first burst of cool night air hits you and panic sets in. You have to force yourself to resist the urge to run!
It took only ten minutes to casually stroll to the victim's house. Covering that same distance back to your waiting car seems to take ten hours! Are people watching you from behind those closed drapes, memorizing your description as they dial the police? Can they hear the pounding of your heart above the noise of their television sets as you struggle to control your breathing and make it even?
Once inside the safety of your automobile, you change you clothing and disguise and alter the gun barrel as quickly as possible. Then, both hands gripping the steering wheel, you drive. Your eyes are constantly searching the roadside. You can't afford and accident, traffic violation, or even to miss a turn in your planned route. you struggle to keep the speed of the auto within set limits. Like you feet, the car seems to want to run.
With the disposal of each piece of evidence, your fear eases. By the time you arrive at the airport, you begin to feel silly about your unnecessary panic.
On the trip back home, you begin to think of the shocking realizations about the real value of life that you experienced after pulling the trigger professionally for the first time. Your own life takes on new meaning. Never again will you strive to accumulate wealth. Instead, you will pack the time you have with the things that make life enjoyable, interesting and exciting. You will live each day to the fullest. The acceptance of the valuelessness of life has give your own life value.
After you have arrived hoe, the events that took place take on a dreamlike quality. you don't dwell on them, you don't worry. You don't have nightmare. You don't fear ghosts. When thoughts of the hit got through your mind, it's almost as though you are recalling some show you saw on television.
By the time you collect the balance of your fee, the doubts and fears of discovery have faded. Those feelings have been replaced by cockiness, a feeling of superiority, a new independence and a new self-assurance.
Your biggest problem now is learning to deal with your ego.
DANGER -- EGO, WOMEN AND PARTNERS
NO MATTER HOW WELL YOU have your act together in other ways, the whole show can come tumbling down when it's shaken by any one of three interferences: ego, women and partners. Let's look at these -- first things first.
Now that you're back home after your first rendezvous with destiny, everything seems to have changed.
The people you have suddenly become so aggravatingly ordinary. You start to view them as an irritating herd of pathetic sheep, doing as they are told, doing what is expected, following someone, anyone, blindly. You can't believe how dumb your friends have become, and your respect diminishes for people you once held in awe.
You too have become different. You recognize that you made some mistakes, but you know what they were, and they will never plague you again. Next time (and you know there will be a next time), there will be no hesitation, no fear.
Your experience in facing death head-on had taught you about life. You have the power and ability to stand alone. You no longer need a reason to kill.
When the guys all get together and the bullshit starts to flow, you find it hard to listen to their tales of how tough they like to think they are., Their threats to "get" this person or that become as irritating, yet harmless, as a swarm of gnats on a hot summer afternoon.
You stifle the urge to tell them how life really is. you control your anger at their pretension of being capable of carrying out the threats they make. you resist the impulse to laugh at the statements they take so seriously.
Your friends sense your irritation but don't understand what has set you apart. You begin to shun social gathering and bullshit sessions. You spend more time studying and accumulating and testing your tools while you wait for the next job opportunity to present itself.
You find yourself making it a point to become on friendly terms with anyone who can be of use to you. Anyone who you feel has something worthwhile to offer in the advancement of your career. Your mind is like a sponge, you eagerly soak up any rumors about available weapo0ns, new combat techniques and the like.
Like the great white shark, you have become an lone predator. Your ego is the greatest burden you will carry from this day forth.
You have feelings and emotions that you might need to share with some understanding person. The things you have learned about life are important. you may wish to pass them on to someone you care about. When the bullshit starts to flow, you may feel compelled to set the record straight and tell those morons how it really is. When someone starts to brag in confidence, about something he's done, the intimacy of the moment, the shared confessions, may inspire you to do a little bragging of your own. Or you may want to overawe some new woman in your life with your masculinity and you feel the urge to shock her just a little by hinting at your true profession.
Start now in learning to control your ego. This means, above all, keeping your mouth shut! You are a man. Without a doubt, you have proved it. you have come face to face with death and emerged the victor through your cunning and expertise. You have dealt death as a professional. You don't need any second or third opinions to verify your manhood.
Don't brag. Don't boast. Don't hint at what you know or what you have done. Don't confide in your girlfriend, your wife, or your best buddy. Only insecure bores must build themselves up by other people's opinions.
The way you use and display the money you made will also be a reflection on your ego. If you have never before had this much cold hard cash at one time, it may be burning a hole in your pocket. Should you let it flow like water, in keeping with your decision to enjoy yourself while you can instead of accumulating wealth?
Part of that money should be put away for living expenses and overhead. You never now how long you will go between job, and you do need to stock up on the best equipment available. Some of it can be spent purchasing items you never could afford before. But the things you can buy of have special limits.
Unless you have additional sources of income to justify large expenditures like a new home, paying off an old mortgage, or a new sports car, don't spend any of your earnings on big items of this type. Big expenditures arouse suspicion, not only of your family and friends, but of the IRS and the authorities if you should ever come under investigation.
Sure, it would make you feel good to walk in and pay for a new $2,m500 stereo set with hundred dollar bills. And flashing around that kind of money in a bar might get he immediate attention you desire from the best looking woman there. But control is the key now. It is far better to have a wallet filled with old twenties than questionable new hundred dollar bills.
Just remember: you are secure within yourself. You don't need to impress anyone else in any way, shape, or form.
If you have been living in a small, unimpressive apartment, stay there for the time being. Later you will learn meth9ods for legally changing your lifestyle to fit your income. But the changes must be gradual, not overnight, conspicuous moves. If you have regular job, keep working at it for a while to substantiate the source of the money you are spending.
The money you made is rightfully yours. The risks you took, the dangers you faced, and the fact that you carried it all off successfully prove you earned it. But unless you have always carried and flashed large sums of cash and enjoyed the finer things of life, free spending and extravagant purchases now will arouse suspicion and start tongues wagging.
In short, don't change your lifestyle dramatically unless you can justify your sudden increase in wealth.
because of their uncanny ability to get into places and situations a man might find hard to duplicate, because of their deceitful, "game-playing" natures, and because a woman can be twice as vicious as a man, a woman can be a better hired executioner than a man.
Fortunately for the world, a woman usually makes only one man her target, and the nesting instinct quickly takes her off the street and ties her down to the little world of babies, laundry and housework she creates and protects for her own. Unfortunately, even a hit man cannot deny that what women have to offer is a basic necessity.
A married man who becomes a hit man for hire, or a single professional who alter ties the knot of matrimony, faces a whole set of woman problems peculiar in themselves. Once a woman becomes the proclaimed property of one man, she feels it her duty to ward off other predators, whether real or imaginary, through suspicion, jealousy, accusation, or even by becoming her own detective to protect and preserve her rightful place. A married professional is then placed in the predicament of either telling his wife everything -- or nothing. And either way, she will have to be a very understanding woman.
For if she knows too much, she could become his own enemy on the face of the earth and may someday have to be eliminated in the name of self-preservation.
And if she knows too little, her suspicious, jealous nature could lead to more snooping and following and conjecture on her part than is healthy -- for either of them.
I read an account in the newspaper recently about a man who was accused and later convicted of murdering the state's witness against him in another trial. It seems he lured this witness into taking a ride with him under the pretense of having no hard feelings about the testimony that was about to go down. instead, he took the would-be state's witness to desolate rock quarry, blew his head off with a shotgun close range, and then tossed him into an alligator filled pit.
From another spot, he called his wife to come get him. In the car on the ride home, he told his wife about what he had done, bragging about his cunning to lure the mark to his death. The sympathetic wife listened, glad that the death of the witness would surely save her husband from spending time in prison.
Later, the only person the wife told about the incident was her mother. And the only person the mother told about the incident was her son.
A few months later, the wife caught her husband in bed in a compromising situation in the family boat with a naked woman. She fired a few shots over the heads of the two lovers and the police came.
In her hurt and anger at his infidelity after making her an accomplice to his crime, she told the authorities about the murder.
the moral of the story is that if you choose to be tied to one woman, make sure she is capable of being your partner in crime. Share with her the fruits of your joint efforts equally and keep reminding her in subtle ways that, if detected, her part in any conspiracy is just as great as yours.
Never let your roving eye of hunger for a little something strange on the side come to her attention. Woman are highly emotional, rarely rational creatures. Is ten minutes of pleasure worth your life at the hands (or tongue) or an irate spouse?
In the true story above, the man who killed the witness and confided in his wife probably really did love his wife. He probably would've never considered telling the woman on the boat about the murder, The first thing he didn't count on was getting caught with the other woman, and the jealous rage and accusation that ensued. The second things he didn't count on was his wife confiding in her mother -- and her mother confiding in a son -- all of which came out in testimony at court, resulting in his conviction.
Ideally, a professional hit man will remain single. He will either purchase his sexual pleasures or participate in impersonal one night stands. his involvement with woman will only be on a sexual level. He will not live with them nor will he let invade his privacy. In most cases, they won't even know his real name.
And he will never
As a man, I appreciate as much as anyone a good-looking body and a warm, willing smile on a woman. As a professional, however, that seems to have lost some of its thrill as I've moved on to bigger, more exciting and more dangerous prey.
Ironically, the best professional partner you can have is a woman. But she has to Ben a full-time partner, and she has to have the following qualifications:
1. Good looks and a seductive attitude
2. Superior intelligence
3. No children or close family ties
4. Total dedication to you
5. A totally vicious nature towards
6. No conscience
7. The mental and physical capability of defending herself and pulling her own eight.
From such a woman, you can expect:
1. The ability to get almost any mark based on her good looks, seductiveness and willingness to go to any lengths to help you.
2. The intelligence to help you plan successful jobs and to provide you with continuously stimulating conversation and companionship.
3. Sex on a regular basis without danger of blowing your cover.
4. An unflinching back-up due to her emotional attachment to you.
Unfortunatly, not too many such women exist. And those who do will be hard to find since, by necessity, they will be as cautious and untrusting as you are.
Some women have these latent qualities, but are in need of someone like you to bring them out and perfect them. If you are interested in forming such a relationship, check for lone women who sign up for mercenary training classes,. visit gun shows, and now their weaponry. Or look for her among those hearty, fanatical individuals who make up survival groups. She could be anywhere, though, so while you're feeling a good woman up, feel her out also -- if you're interested in adding a permanent partner. And good luck!
Assuming you have been fortunate enough to find your HMIW (Hit Man's Ideal Woman), you will, from time to time, require a partner to assist you on a particular job. The need may arise due to the mark's use of bodyguards or other defensive procedures, an inaccessibility that must be overcome through diversion, or even language barrier.
Whatever the reason, the partner you select will be a man you can trust and who can be depended on to cover your back. He will meet the same rigid requirements you have set for yourself and will not be lacking in basic common sense. He will be discreet and not a braggart. He will be self-assured to the point that you won't have to worry about his ego. He will be totally business-minded while doing business and will not be sidetracked by women or other pastimes. And when the job is going down, he willingly pump one or two of his own bullets into the mark to ensure equal responsibility.
Whgether male or female, you partner is equal to fifty-fifty compensation. Everything should be fifty-fifty. Equal pay for equal risk and equal responsibility. This is an insurance measure for both of you.
Generally, a professional prefers to work alone. But when a partner is required, the same caution must be used as in controlling one's ego and electing one's woman. "Patience is a virtue," my grandmother used to say, and patience is something a hit man needs plenty of. Not only will you require3 patience while you are stalking your prey and waiting for the right moment to make your kill, but also in areas like feeling out the potential employer and looking for a suitable partner. You may be on pins and needles, anxious for the next job to come along or for a partner you can trust.
These things don't come overnight. If you meet someone who seems as radical as you, test him over a period of time in your own subtle way to see if he really measures up. Gut first impressions can't be relied on here.
Give him a while to prove himself,. See how free he is with his conversation. How much does he know about weapons? Is he emotionally stable? How does he handle his personal life? Is it a shambles of bad relationships and creditors knocking on his door>
How a man thinks, lives and acts is just as important as his marksmanship and fighting ability. And many an insecure fool needing to prove his manhood will give the impression of being capable to assist you. Beware!
