- LeseprobeFBI Academy<br>Quantico, Virginia<br>She was in Hogan's Alley, the highest crime rate city in<br>the United States. She knew just about every inch of every<br>building in this town, certainly better than the actors who<br>were paid eight dollars an hour to play bad guys, and better<br>than many of the bureau employees who were witnesses,<br>robbers and cops every day in Hogan's Alley.<br>Today she and three other trainees were going to catch a<br>bank robber. She hoped. They were told to keep their eyes<br>open, nothing else. It was a parade day in Hogan's Alley.<br>There was a crowd of people around, drinking sodas and<br>eating hot dogs. It wasn't going to be easy. Chances were<br>that the suspect was going to be one of the people trying to<br>blend in with the crowd, trying to look as innocent as an<br>everyday guy, she'd stake a claim on that. She would have<br>given anything if they'd gotten just a brief glance at the<br>robber, but they hadn't. It was a critical situation, lots of<br>innocent civilians milling about and a bank robber who<br>would probably run out of the bank, a bank robber who was<br>possibly dangerous.<br>She saw Buzz Alport, an all-night waiter at a truck stop<br>off I-95. He was whistling, looking as if he didn't have a<br>care in the world. No, Buzz wasn't the bad guy today. She<br>knew him too well. She tried to memorize every face, so<br>she'd be able to spot the robber if he suddenly appeared. She<br>slowly worked the crowd, trying to look calm and unhurried.<br>She saw some visitors from the Hill, standing on the sidelines,<br>watching the agents role-play crimes and catch criminals.<br>She couldn't kill a visiting congressman. It wouldn't<br>look good for the Bureau.<br>It began. She and Porter Forge, a Southerner from Birmingham<br>who spoke beautiful French without a hint of a<br>drawl, saw a man dash from behind a side door of the bank,<br>followed by a bank employee frantically waving and yelling<br>at the top of his lungs at the fleeing man. She and Forge got<br>no more than a brief glimpse. They went after the robber.<br>He dove into the crowd of people and disappeared. Because<br>there were civilians around, they kept their guns holstered.<br>If any of them hurt a civilian, there'd be hell to pay. It didn't<br>matter. Three minutes later they'd lost him.<br>It was then that she saw Dillon Savich, an FBI agent and<br>computer genius who taught occasional classes here at Quantico,<br>standing next to a man she'd never seen before. Both<br>were wearing sunglasses, blue suits and blue-gray ties.<br>She'd know Savich anywhere. She wondered what he was<br>doing here at this particular time. Had he just taught a class?<br>She'd never heard of him being at Hogan's Alley
