“Look, my informant said that this guy knows things -- things like what happened that night -- and this is where he lives now with his partner. Rumour has it he used to be FBI. Fox something or other.” Vin yelped as the seatbelt cut into his chest as the Jag screeched to a halt.

“What the hell are you talking about?” Vin threw out as he rubbed his chest.
“I know exactly who we’ve been sent to find. The man eats sunflower seeds,” Ezra bit out shortly.
“So? Nate says seeds are healthy.” Vin shifted round to look at the other man.
“I’m not worried about his health. Those damn shells get everywhere.” Ezra sighed and began to bang his head against the steering wheel.
“So you know him?” Vin reached out and placed his hand on the wheel cushioning Ezra’s head. “Why didn’t you bring him up before?”
“Because he has a worse reputation than I do!” Ezra cried out.
