TWO TICKETS TO DUBROVNIK Angus Kennedy Australian wine writer, Andrew Johnston, goes to Dubrovnik to prepare an article for his editor on the wines and wineries of southern Rhône. During his stay, he meets up with an old Bordelaise wine making acquaintance, Lucien Delasalles, and his step-sister, Niki Menèetiæ. They meet a few times but Andrew, starting to fall for Niki, is warned about Niki’s brother, Jakov, and his unsavoury friends, by his landlady, Mme Gradiæ. Nevertheless, Andrew gets to know Niki’s aunt and her family, and meets Jakov. Andrew receives a visit from the local police, who ask about his relationship with Niki and Jakov Menèetiæ. Andrew wants to find out more of Jakov’s activities and arranges to meet Niki, the two of them spending a day picnicking on Lokrum, an island just off Dubrovnik. His questioning of Niki raises her ire and she leaves him to go to Cavtat, on the mainland, just south of Dubrovnik. Andrew follows her and finds out more of Jakov’s activities and then dines with Niki the following night. The police again call on Andrew with more questions, and he reveals everything that he and Niki had discussed. Jakov is arrested the following day. Andrew tries to contact Niki and eventually lunches with her a day later. Over lunch, she becomes aware of all that he has told the police and she leaves the lunch angry and disappointed in Andrew and he does not hear from her again. He is deeply saddened but, his work done, he leaves Dubrovnik soon afterwards and returns to Australia. He never hears from or sees Niki again.
