The chief of the police department was sleeping when he was woken by a ring from the phone on his desk. Answering it, he said groggily, "Hello?"

"THE DOWNTOWN CONCORD BANK HAS BEEN ROBBED!" Somebody shouted into the phone, waking him up from his drowsiness.

"All right, I'll be right there," he replied into the phone. Taking five other men from his squad with him, he got in his police cruiser and headed out.

As the six cruisers passed by the interstate, a black Toyota Camry sped down the road the other way. Inside it, Butch Falerone murmured to himself, "100,000 G's. Butchie, baby, you outdid yourself this time." He drove onto the highway and headed towards his grandmother's old cabin.
