Summary: Time is running out.
Subtlety had never been Mozzie’s strong suit.
“Go with me or stay here with Peter.”
He wondered if Mozzie really understood the implications of that statement. Maybe he did. Moz wasn’t subtle, but he wasn’t stupid either.
Neal still had one last ace, the ground prepared months earlier when he’d started selling Peter the dirty cop story. If absolutely necessary, he’d stage a breakdown, complete with tales of his abused childhood. He hated the idea of pulling such an undignified con, but it might be the only way out, and he figured he could make Peter buy it.
