Uptown was the only place I could think of where we would not be found right away, but uptown was pretty far for us to walk and we had no other means of getting there. I could probably steal a car, but I did not want the police involved. Albert owned most of the local cops and quite a few of the uptown ones to boot. You didn’t get to be a big time player like him if you didn’t have the law on your side. It was times like this I when I wished I could call for help.
