Summary: It's out of his range, but anything's possible.
Neal watches as the storm gathers in Peter’s office. First Diana showing Peter something in a newspaper, then suspicion clouding Peter’s face. Even Jones seems to be involved. Finally, the two-finger summons.
A stolen Picasso. San Francisco. The thief in a dark jacket, white shirt, dark pants, and loafers with no socks.
He doesn’t bother denying anything; just crosses his legs, ostentatiously displaying the tracking anklet.
"You can't pin every well-dressed crime on me, Peter.”
Peter smiles in agreement and Neal realizes that Peter’s been playing him. He’s simultaneously relieved and chagrinned.
Peter is getting way too good at this.
