“What do you think this is, Butch,” Detective Fred Morrisey said as he leaned across the interrogation table, “some stupid, low budget cops and robbers movie? Stop fooling yourself, pal. We’ve been able to forge together an airtight case and you’re going to be put away for a long, long time.”
Hanover, now furious, tried to lunge toward the detective, but was pulled back down into his seat by his handcuffs chained to the table. “I ain’t saying another word until my lawyer gets here. Then I’ll gleefully watch your expression when I get released. ‘Til then, copper, you’d better get a good night’s sleep tonight, cuz you’re gonna be spending the rest of what’s left of your short life looking over your shoulder.”
“You got me shaking in my boots,” Morrisey said, grinning down at his prisoner.
