Minikillers : 3 — Macabre

Diana casually sips tea at an outdoor café, watched by the boss and his men on top of the nearby Banco Zaragozano building. He radios the bald henchman who fits a bomb inside one of the dolls and hides it behind the seats of Diana’s car. Diana finishes her tea and drives off up to the hills, pursued by the henchmen. She has to brake abruptly when a broken down car appears in front of her , blocking the winding mountain road. The passenger seat flips forward, revealing the hidden doll. She picks it up as the boss’s Mercedes approaches. The henchmen get out and walk towards her as she listens to the ticking coming from the doll. She hurls the doll at the gang and it explodes, leaving just the bald henchman who is easily defeated after a short fight and falls over the cliff edge. She picks a flower and tosses it down onto his body then she backs away uncertainly as the henchman, not dead, rouses himself and struggles to sit up.

Back at the resort, Diana is handed a black-edged condolence card by a waiter as she gets into her car. She smiles as she reads it - the name on it is hers 1 - and the boss, who watches her from nearby, smiles as well - she is a formidable opponent!

She drives to the town cemetery and wanders through the graves until she happens across an old-fashioned horse-drawn hearse. Nearby, the boss and two of his men await her with an empty coffin to which they obsequiously direct her. Two more men appear and drag her toward the coffin but she shrugs them off and once again defeats all of the gang, this time making off with the hearse.
