A Parker Novel
The Outfit thinks it has a grievance on me. It doesn’t. But it keeps sending its punks around to make trouble. I told their headman I’d give them money trouble if they didn’t quit, and they didn’t quit. You told me one time about a lay you worked out for that gambling place outside Boston, and you’d do me a favor if you knocked it off in the next couple weeks. I’m writing some of the other boys, too, so you can be sure they’ll be too busy to go looking for you special. I don’t want a cut and I can’t come in on the job because I’ll be busy making trouble myself. You can always get in touch with me care of Joe Sheer out in Omaha. Maybe we’ll work together again someday.
