The Rhythm Section

Chapter 30
Summary

After finding out the rest of the flights that the Sons of Sabah intended on bombing, Petra maneuvers her way up to the cockpit, fighting off one of the hijackers. She instructs the pilot to send out the list of the targeted flights to the crisis control center. However, before the last message can be sent, Mohammed arrives, assuming that his accomplice had been killed by Petra as she was no longer at her station, and engages her in a Mexican standoff. Reza informs her that his true identity is Mustafa Sela, a Palestinian who has been driven to terrorism by his pursuit of revenge for the deaths of three of his family members — for which he implicates the Israeli forces as being responsible. He, too, just like Petra, has become cold-hearted in his crusade for vengeance. Just as he concludes his narrative, the SAS storm the plane and promptly kill the terrorists.
