Half-baked thoughts collided with one another in his mind as he intently watched the entrance behind him in the rearview mirror. Faint trembles rippled in a continuous tide up from his toes to his neck.
He found he was shaken in an unexpected way. The two men were not as close to his memory of them as he had expected them to be. But as he focused part of his mind on the tableau, there was no question. These two animals had been a part of that night. He had to find a way to isolate each in a private setting in which he could ask his questions in a way that would bring answers. He desperately wanted to make a move. But what? It would be utter foolishness to tackle both together.
Thirty minutes later, one of the two left the bar and started down the block toward him. Wade felt his heart pounding even harder. And adrenalin surged. He concentrated on remaining motionless as the man strode arrogantly past his car. He watched until he turned in to El Café, another hot spot on Wade's mental list.
The urge to escape the area overpowered him. Mentally he beat on the thought until it faded. It was time. He shouldered his carry-all bag, stepped out of the car, and started toward the door of the Pedro's Salón. He hesitated momentarily, then determinedly opened the door; he'd never discover a good approach examining the door.
