Chapter 403: Finding Clue (Part One)
Xu Cheng didn’t realize the importance of intel until he began preparing for the operation.
The Dragon Division indeed gathered too little information on the Shanling Financial Group. Rather, they paid more attention to the movements within the government, and they didn’t investigate too much into other private financial groups since it wasn’t urgent.
So, it would be useless for Xu Cheng to count on the Dragon Division. Besides, the motive of Xu Cheng’s operation was revenge, and it wouldn’t be allowed anyways by the Dragon Division. Now, he threw away all kinds of communication devices on him so people wouldn’t try to contact him and convince him not to do it. So, without backup, it obviously wouldn’t be feasible to destroy the entire Shanling financial group, but he could still try to find the culprit behind the assassination attempt on his wife.
He then flew to the black market in Mexico.
Saar welcomed him graciously, even coming to pick him up in an armed pickup truck.
Xu Cheng didn’t stay around for too long. He just asked Saar, “I want you to do me a favor.”
Saar: “Just say it.”
Xu Cheng said: “I want to know if the criminal underworld has a bounty on my head.”
Normally, people would bring a profile to the Assassin Alliance to register the target they want to kill, and Xu Cheng wanted to know if he was already on the list. Then, if he was, then maybe he could track whether it was posted by the Wei Nation’s Shanling Financial Group since that seemed to be the only party he had offended recently overseas. Maybe he can also find out who exactly put his name up, and then he could trace it all the way to the roots and make his way over there! This would save a lot more trouble than just rushing over there directly.
Saar frowned. “We aren’t assassins, so we can’t check this type of confidential information.”
Xu Cheng: “That’s why I came to find you. With your status, you probably know a few assassins that you can trust, right?”
“It’s not a matter of friendship, you need to know that if the Assassin Alliance was to find out about an assassin leaking this kind of information, he would be traced down to be killed by the Assassin King.”
“I know it’s a matter of trust and credibility, but I can guarantee that I won’t leak this kind of information. I will give him 5 million dollars in compensation.”
Saar lifted his brows and said, “Then wait here for a second, I will get him to come over.”
Xu Cheng nodded.
After waiting for about two hours, a man with a scarred face and a black beard came in wearing sunglasses, dressed casually. He walked into Saar’s villa’s yard.
“Got business for me?”
Then, he saw Xu Cheng, and after briefly checking him out as he walked by, he poured himself a glass of champagne.
Xu Cheng directly said to him, “I want to check if my name is on the hit list of the Assassin Alliance.”
The black-bearded assassin was too lazy to even answer him. He just kept on drinking, as if he didn’t want to acknowledge him.
Saar didn’t plan on doing anything too. He knew the assassin’s temper, and at the same time, he also understood Xu Cheng’s. Both sides probably wouldn’t compromise easily. (read on noodletowntranslated dot com to support the actual translators)
Xu Cheng felt that he was looked down upon, so he slightly chuckled. He suddenly raised the glass of champagne in his hand and threw it at the black-beard assassin’s head. Such a lightning-fast speed made it impossible for either Saar or the assassin to react. (read on noodletowntranslated dot com to support the actual translators)
The black-bearded assassin was dumbfounded as he covered his bleeding head. He could still tolerate the pain, but when he wanted to retaliate, Xu Cheng already shoved a foot up his azz and sent him flying out of the window from the second floor.
