In this chapter, it is one of the few times that the reader gains insight into the relationship of Mentor (Greg) and his special agent, Hardware (Harrison). The intensity of the ongoing case allowed for little familiarity among the men, as the search for the president took center stage. Yet, professionalism sometimes must give access to friendship if the relationship is to endure. And Mentor and Hardware have that kind of relationship where neither one has to complete a sentence or thought for the other to understand. There is comfort in that kind of familiarity.
