“No way, she was already with Tina at the time.”
“So you can confirm that Bette was in a lesbian relationship the night your father was killed.”
“I’m not confirming a damn thing. We’re done here,” Cam said as he turned and walked away. He wasn’t completely sure what all that was about, but he knew it wasn’t good for his twin sister.
An hour later Cam arrived at the offices of one of Manhattan’s exclusive law firms. Five weeks ago, after he was transferred to Queensboro and had regular access to a phone and the internet, he hired the law firm to handle several legal matters.
“Thanks for meeting with me, Barry,” Cam said.
Barry Weinstein was the senior partner at Weinstein and Associates, a favorite of Manhattan’s wealthy for the last 20 years. They specialized in several areas, including, criminal law, tax law, real estate law, and in some cases, business law. “Of course, Mr. Porter. Please have a seat. We have everything prepared for you.”
Before Cam went to prison, he hired a financial advisor to manage his inheritance while he served his time. His money took a hit in the early quarters of the recession, but through a creative investment strategy, he recovered his losses and then some. His net worth qualified him as one of the firm’s most valued clients.
Barry reached into his desk and handed Cam a set of keys. “Your new TriBeCa condo is all set, completely furnished and stocked with food, clothing, and necessities.”
“Great, I was wondering where I was going to sleep tonight,” Cam replied.
Barry handed Cam a second set of keys and continued, “Your BMW motorcycle is stored in your parking space, registered and fueled.”
“I guess I’ll have to renew my license this week,” Cam joked.
“That would be prudent, Mr. Porter.” Barry handed Cam a new smartphone. “Your iPhone.”
Cam inspected his new gadget and was mildly perplexed at its complexity. When he went to prison, smartphones hadn’t even been marketed yet. “Looks like I have a steep learning curve ahead of me.”
“We took the liberty of preparing a tutorial and loaded it onto your new laptop which is at your condo.”
“Appreciate that. It’s been a while since I’ve even handled a cell phone. Can you show me real quick how to make a call?”
