“Camelot is ready. The operation is a go,” a voice crackled through the

transceiver in my ear. The mission was being initiated and a part of me was

annoyed. Only halfway through my fried chicken, I was still pretty hungry. I

hadn’t eaten since the night before, since the plane ride down that morning

served no breakfast. Given that I was going to meet with a drug kingpin in a

few minutes, the last thing I wanted was for my stomach to be growling.

I sat in the first floor food court of the Franklin Building, El Paso’s premier

commercial block and the headquarters of the global fast food chain Beef n’

Wings. It was just after noon and the area stirred with visitors eager for their

lunch. From my position I could see two other field agents, the only other two

in the building. Far off to my right, just outside the crowds and colorful

cacophony of restaurants, a hulking teenaged boy seemed to have the same

idea I had as he snacked on a beef hot dog from one of the stands. He wore

a blue hard hat, with matching blue overalls and heavy-looking harnesses

which clung to his body. At his side he loosely held a squeegee as well as

some napkins, presumably for his meal. After taking a big gulp, his lips began

to move. It was much too noisy in the food court to pick up any word he was

saying naturally, but on the transceiver I could hear him perfectly. Percival is

ready. Let’s get this over with.”
