Did You Know?
Just between us, how long had Lewis been using a marked deck?
I don't know, Cassidy, but he's had those in his desk for six months.
Are these the same kind of cards he had in the game when he was shot?
Yeah. Take a look at the markings - they're perfect. Not one chance in a million of anyone finding out about it.
Coates found out about it.
Well, that's that chance in a million.
