"This scavenger hunt of yours . . . I played that game when I was a kid. Knocking on doors, asking for treasure and trash, and it's all the same to you. Well, open your eyes, tough guy, you stumbled on to something big here." Walsh clawed at Jimmy Cage's arm. "Put me on the cover of 'SLAP', play it up big--"
Jimmy shook him off. "I've been hustled by the best, Walsh, and this ancient mariner routine of yours is stale. Hire a press agent if you what publicity."
"You're killing me." Walsh stared out of the window, his face slack. "You're killing me and you don't even know it."
