Jerry Hines has been on the take, in one form or another, since he joined the Police Bureau as a young man.

He’s taken bribes from petty criminals, Big Jim Butler’s goons, and nearly anyone else that needed a break.

Now he’s taking money from a mystery man called Valen who pays in gold ingots and never shows his face. Jerry’s supposed to keep an eye on a fellow cop, a detective named Casing, and report on his movements.

Since then, the detective’s gone and got himself shot—soon after Jerry had called in the report that Casing was going to Darla’s Diner, a local cop hangout. Jerry feels a little guilty about this—but not guilty enough to quit.

Valen is no longer paying Jerry—in fact, Valen seems to have disappeared. This is making Jerry nervous so he’s backed off the detective—until he was contacted directly by Hubbard to continue watching Casing and report on his movements—especially in regard to his investigation of the New Moon Killer.

Hines was later contacted by Dillon, posing as Valen, and a confrontation with Casing ensued. Hines gave them information on how the meetings went down and on how to find Hubbard.
