The low profile, the man on the periphery, that’s me. I turned around, drove back to Atlantic City, and took up my station in front of Harold’s office. I called Rosenberg & Stone. Wendy/Cheryl was hopping mad. She bawled me out for a couple of minutes, then put me on hold. A minute later, Richard Rosenberg’s voice exploded in my ear. ” he screamed. “I tell you to call in, I want you to call in! You don’t do it, you’re losing me business, you’re costing me money, you’re a drain on the firm—” He went on in that vein for some time, then gave me back to Wendy/Cheryl to get my assignments.
I reached the top of the stairs. There was an open door in front of me leading to a small room in the back of the house. Sunlight was streaming through the window. Just to one side, out of the glare of the light, was a mattress on the floor. An old black man lay on the mattress, his right leg encased in a hip-length cast. His eyes were closed, and his face was contorted in pain. ” I said. He opened his eyes and saw me. His eyes took on some light. He actually raised up on one elbow. ” he grunted.
Meanwhile, hey! Here I was in Atlantic City. I’d never been in Atlantic City. But I’d certainly heard enough about it, what with New Yorkers always talking about it, and what with all those ads on TV. And I figured, hey, if Harold was mixed up in something shady, what would be more logical than that it would have to do with gambling? I thought about that some, and then I went out and had some dinner, and then I thought about it some more, and the long and the short of it was before too long I talked myself into the notion that it would be a pretty good idea for me to familiarize myself with the local casinos.
