He's pulled back into his own line of work, though, when a local kid alerts him to his brother's disappearance, uncovering dark secrets and complicating his perception of the place he's newly called home. They’re absolute experts in understanding people and bringing the right pressures to bear. You’d go to pieces inside a week.”. That Cal is former Chicago PD and that he appears to have left the job because in the last couple of years he woke up each morning with a “thick knotted certainty that something bad was rolling towards him, something unpreventable and implacable, like a hurricane or a mass shooting”—all of this hints at a coming reckoning with the police violence he has left behind.
