    Summary

    Natalia is stacking blocks very carefully when the adults come into the room. None of them look at her, because they're all looking at her father. He's wearing combat gear, and the hair on the left side of his head is slicked back with blood. He smells like smoke and something unnameable, sweet and dark and a little sickly in her nose.

    Father is saying, “Don't be ridiculous. The only thing children are good at is disobeying.”

    Summary

    Later Fraser asked, “Do they need to know the coordinates where we landed in Canada?”

    Ray yawned and pretended to think about this. “Nah. I think ‘frozen wasteland of death’ oughta do it.”

    Fraser’s lips twitched. “There are a lot of Canadians at the conference, Ray. They might be interested.”

    “If they’re so interested in coordinates they can go to a wilderness, uh, orientating conference or something. This one’s for international policing, you and me we policed internationally and the exact place we jumped out of a plane is not real important to how we did that.”

    Bookmarker's Notes

    "Raymond," Laverne said when she finally spoke again, "you know that as a four-foot-eleven African-American woman, I entered the legal profession at a considerable disadvantage, and have made great strides despite being under-estimated by my peers."
    "Yes."
    "And you know that I have similar, though not identical, hopes for you."
    "I do."
    "People are going to go out of their way to make you feel less-than. It is wrong of them to do so. They are going to do it anyway. Your job is not to believe them."

    Summary

    - Actually, Ray and I met over the phone…Ray was a source for an article I was writing for The New Yorker. I asked him a series of dry questions about police work, and his answers had me in stitches.
    - We met for a drink that night, and we’ve been together ever since.

    Kevin Cozner and Ray Holt, before they met, when they met, and early on in their relationship.

    Most of the story is rated 'T,' with the exception of Chapter 4, which earns the 'M' rating.
