“Bang bang shoot shoot,” said Rocket.

“That came later. After I got out I went into law enforcement, like lots of ex-military. It turned out I was more suited to private investigation, especially after I teamed up with the right partner.”

Coach Raker gazed at me. For a moment I thought he was about to give my head a friendly pat but he did not. “Ever think about human athletic accomplishments and what certain critters in the animal world can do?”

“Yes,” Bernie said.
