You were in the trenches during the Great War. Bullets caressed the air next to your tin hat, and mortar shells blossomed only footsteps away. It was miserable while you were there,
but you kind of miss it now. It’s hard to sleep in all this quiet. For a while, you thought being a cop would be the closest approximation to life in the infantry.
But that was a big disappointment — all paperwork and politics. Forget the uniform and regulations; you went into business for yourself. You’re a real licensed private eye now. Snooping on cheating husbands, tracking down delinquents, shaking down the crooks
the cops won’t touch. You even get into a fistfight now and then. That gets the
blood boiling again. It’s not exactly St. Mihiel, but you never know where the
next case could take you.

Something about life back in the States makes you tired and dreary eyed. It’s not to say you don’t love the wife and kids, but you spend more time out of the house looking for trouble. Maybe that’s why Judy’s stepping out on you (didn’t take much of an investigation to figure that out). Eventually. Confronting her wouldn’t give you the same satisfaction as sticking it to some two-bit thug anyway.
You’re both good Catholics; you’ll stand by each other and figure it out
