Just for a bit of fun..........

The hypothetical situation is: your wife and children have been kidnapped by persons unknown. All the evidence suggests that the perps are serious people: foreign intelligence agency/terrorists/organised crime. You have to assemble a Dream Team of 10 fictional people to resolve the situation. Just one rule, no Superheroes, I'm talking about real, fictional people.

My suggestions would be:

1. John Clarke (from Tom Clancy)
2. Mitch Rapp (from Vince Flynn)
3. Gabriel Allon (from Daniel Silva)
4. Jack Reacher (from Lee Child)

   These guys would be the ultimate SWAT Team.

5. George Smiley (from Le Carre)
6. Sam McCready (from Forsyth)
   The Planners

7. Harry Bosch (from Michael Connelly). The policeman's policeman, man on a mission, never gives up.
8. Mrs Marple (from Agatha Christie). For the eccentricity and Marg Rutherford was just so cool.
   The Investigators

9. Harry Flashman (from George MacDonald Fraser). For a comedic slant and because Harry was always just ….... lucky.
10. Lisbeth Salander (from Stieg Larsson). For IT support (and a few other things).

Well, that's my list. There were a few that nearly made it: Sherlock Holmes (obviously), Uhtred & Richard Sharpe (from Bernard Cornwell) and several more, but I think they have to be contemporary or nearly contemporary.

Butterfly - directly above the little boy's left eye.
Duck - between the dog's back legs.

Can't see a bat though.........

I think the bat is between the boy and the girl; above the tree roots and below the green leaves of the bush.

I'm not sure about the bat, but I see a carrot in the tree.

I can see a panda but I had to take my glasses off first to see it and then pull my head away a metre from the screen to get a clear picture.
