The crash of a small aircraft offers Friday and Gannon an opportunity. Inside the plane officers discover marijuana and heroin with a total street value over a million. If they can find the pilot, and get the drop location from him, they may be able to follow the chain of criminals to the very top. But they only have five hours: after that the criminals will realize their shipment is missing and disappear. Canvassing neighborhoods at 1:45am eventually puts them onto the pilot, but he won't cooperate. Of course, as Friday reminds him, when he fails to make his shipment on time his criminal bosses are likely to be murderously unhappy. His insurance plan - an article in the newspaper about the crash - won't help him, since Friday has persuaded the news hounds to withhold that item. Stuck, he puts them onto the drop site, and that leads them to the pick up men. If they can get the pick up men to talk, they might just cage the top dog. Written by
