After trying in vain to sort out the details of his dream, Billy slept intermittently and poorly the rest of the night. Remorse had returned. If only he had the computer savvy of Rosey and the handyman traits of his father, he kept thinking, he could change his identity and start over in Arizona as a bricklayer or some such. Whether or not a pack of Marlboro Lights was in his desk drawer the next morning, one thing was clear. After covering his recent travel expenses, Billy would not take any more of the spoils from the insurance scam.
