It came, and I had a decision to make. Did I get in the elevator with Harold and risk him getting a good look at me, or did I attract even more attention to myself by standing there like an asshole while the doors closed in my face? I opted for the elevator. I’m sure it was a good choice. Harold seemed preoccupied. He never even glanced in my direction. The elevator arrived at the ground floor and we got out. I followed a few steps behind as Harold walked down the hall and into the casino. Harold and I wove our way through the maze of slot machines to the middle of the room, where the real games were.
Thinking about the meter started associations in my mind, made me realize I was only a few blocks away from Harold’s office. I wondered if he was in it. The Weasel came back out of the Photomat, got in his car and pulled out. I pulled out and tagged along behind. In midtown stop-and-go traffic there was nothing suspicious about my being right behind him, so I was able to pull up close and get his license number. I wrote it down. The Weasel kept on going out Atlantic Avenue. I had no idea where he was going, and I didn’t really care, unless it was back to the Dunleavy house.
He wanted simple, straightforward cases. Anything borderline just wasn’t worth his time. I knew he’d turn Floyd Watson down.

Not them stairs. ” I looked at him. “I’m sorry. ” He shook his head. ” “Oh? ” He grimaced as a spasm of pain hit him again. It passed, and his eyes opened again. He looked at me and jerked his thumb over his shoulder.
