No one noticed Jacques-Louis. In the streets no one stared, only brushed past him as he hurried to his destination. Those who met him found it difficult to hide their disappointment. He was not the man they had imagined, not the image they had conjured in their mind. Surely, he was not the epitome of strategical genius, wielder of power, a titan of business?

Jacques-Louis average looks, his middle-class clothes, disarmed his adversaries, made them discount him, discredit and dismiss him. He smiled, pressed his advantage and struck the killing blow.

Keep on writing.
