Rafferty soon discovers Sherm’s just a workaday schmuck earning some extra cash as Manny Hinkston’s bagman, and lying to his wife about it.
But before Rafferty can convince Sherm of the limited future in a gig like that, Sherm has no future at all.
He’s been executed inside a Hinkston whorehouse, and Rafferty was there when it all went down. The cops want to throw the book at Rafferty, but he didn’t kill Sherm; he was just late to the party.
Which quickly becomes standard operating procedure. No matter what he tries, Rafferty’s always one step behind.
