"Is there anything doing?" asked O'Day.
The man nodded. "On the first floor-not many but what's going is very good." He smiled benignly.
O'Day asked: "Where's Mr. Favrola?"
" In his office," said the man. "He's alone."

Favrola shrugged. "A poker game, that ees all. Less and less people come 'ere these days, and if they
