I had put her in the middle of extremely questionable circumstances by not telling her what was going on last spring. The pressure she was under now was my responsibility. I have what might be considered a very out-of-date and chauvinist attitude about women. I like to treat women like ladies. I like to open doors for them, pay for the meal when I舗m on a date, bring flowers, draw out their seat for them舒all that sort of thing. I guess I could call it an attitude of chivalry, if I thought more of myself.
I didn舗t see the sign on the building舗s front doors until I got close. 舡 I said, reading it. 舡 舠Mmm-hmm,舡 Murphy said, glancing at me over her shoulder. 舡 Chicago舗s resident crime lord, Gentleman Johnny Marcone, was the robber baron of the mean streets. He kept all the rough business inside the city proper, leaving his legitimate interests out in the suburbs, like here in Rosemont. Last spring, when I had confronted him in his club, a previous incarnation of the Varsity, about a deadly new drug on the streets, the place had wound up burning to the ground.
Jail? Hell, Murphy. 舡 She shot me an irritated scowl, headlights of cars going the opposite way on the highway flaring across her face. 舠Don舗t even start with me, Harry. 舡 A dozen questions tried to fight their way out of my mouth. 舡 Murphy turned her eyes back to the road. 舠I wanted to. Believe me. But I couldn舗t. Internal Affairs started riding me about what happened with Marcone and Victor Sells last spring. Someone got the idea that I was in cahoots with Marcone. That I helped to murder one of his competitors and took out the ThreeEye drug ring.
