The Dutch also work in with the powerful and well-funded US Drug Enforcement Agency, and if the Dutch say so, then US intelligence about the European—and ultimately Australian— drug trade route can also dry up. The Dutch Synthetic Drugs Unit has already cemented its position as Europe’s premier anti-drugs team, with its encyclopedic knowledge of drugs crime. Morris knows the AFP’s liaison with this unit—a relationship of mutual assistance fostered out of necessity, which has been steadily growing stronger over the past few years—will also be damaged.
It seems inconceivable though. Standen is one of the most senior and experienced law enforcers in the country, he keeps telling himself. Mark Standen had served the AFP with distinction, and since working with the NSW Crime Commission has been a highly respected member of the crime-fighting fraternity—entrusted with unearthing international criminals and tracking their syndicates and drug runs, not joining them.

The men also agree to postpone the Australian shipment, unwilling to risk losing a fourth haul in as many months.
