It was a bit dark even with the windows open. The girth of the surrounding structures was still blocking the early morning sun, but it was easy enough to spot a man sitting in a shady nook at the far end of the establishment. He wore a brown derby and had a neatly trimmed, thick, black mustache that ended in points a little ways out from his lips. He looked to be a small man wearing a heavy, suede coat, but the coat was open, and Garrett saw well enough the black vest underneath. The man was sitting across from another man, to whom he appeared to slip something under the table. The other man scampered off then.

He checked the address again. The street name was familiar.
