There's the murder squad you set your sights on, back at the beginning of your career: the one where you spend your day playing knife-edge mind-games with psychopathic geniuses, knowing that one wrong blink could mean the difference between victory and another dead body. And there's the one you actually work on, when you're the squad pariah. The night shifts. The vicious jabs and the pranks that go too far.
