An excerpt from “Cosa Nostra”:

“Mikey stopped complaining about the kids when he noticed headlights of a large SUV coming slowly down the street toward us. We took our place in the shadows of the alley and waited to see if they were turning in. We reached inside our jackets and gripped our pistols. In our business, we needed to watch out for setups.”
