My novel opens with an official from a paramilitary corporation approaching a senior Russian politician with a deal that could change the entire world. The thing is, I can't think of an appropriate way of introducing themselves to each other. On one hand, I want the chapter to be interesting, but on the other, I don't want it to be too forceful for the sakes of it being realistic. I originally wrote it as the official's men slamming into the Russian's hotel room, but that falls into being forceful. $200 million is at stake in this scene. I want to make it good. Anyone have any ideas?
