This weeks Mondays Finish the Story challenge is to finish a 100 word story that begins with : “The team employed the use of Nightshade to get the information they wanted from their captive. ”

Marcus, the team leader, drew a wad of banknotes from his briefcase.
It was at that precise moment that the captive started laughing raucously and things went nightmarishly wrong.
