Adam ended his meditation. He found Gladys where she had been for hours, sitting in front of the television.
She looked at him as he entered. “How’d the thing go?”
“Well. The criminals had no chance. Dante is on his way here with the money now.”
“And he behaved?”
Adam raised his eyebrows, then understood. “He killed no one. I am relieved.”
“The thing about Dante is, he hates everyone. But the ones he really wants to kill? It’s the people in charge. To him, those crooks are just trying to get by in this world we’re all stuck in.”
