In one of the offices at the far end, Baby saw a light. He switched off his CD player, removed his earphones, left his cart where it was, and walked softly through the committee room. The room was Baby’s favorite, a big room that had been a federal courtroom when the building was young, carefully restored, and, since Baby had been doing the cleaning, carefully kept up, too. Baby’s sneakers made no noise on the thick carpet. He was glad; he wanted to see why the light was on before revealing himself.

What I’d like you to do is go and talk with Mrs. ” He snapped the last round into the clip. “I believe she’s prepared to offer you quite a lot of money,” he said. ” “Everybody needs money,” Kane said. The truth was that Kane was doing pretty well financially. He was drawing a salary from the security firm and a pension from the police department, and since he wasn’t drinking he didn’t have any expensive habits.

When Baby finished that room, he worked his way from office to office, around the corner, along the hallway, and past the elevator to the women’s restroom.
