Footsteps echoed in the hallway as they approached. There was a firm knock. Once, twice. Then silence.

Max stood closest to the door but hesitated to open it. He turned his head, seeking Ralphie and some sign of direction, maybe a nod or even a word but Ralphie, wide-eyed, simply shrugged. Max sighed. The knock came again, more earnestly.

“Chicago PD,” said a clipped voice.
