He tells OMara a former OSS commando during World War II to use his special operations training, learned at Camp X during World War II, and to select a small team that will work without badges or official support from the police.OMaras pregnant wife Connie suggests choosing unorthodox veterans like himself, as young highperformers would likely already be on Cohens payroll. With Connies help, OMara selects a small squad of cops street officer Coleman Harris, wiretap expert Conwell Keeler, gunslinger and sharpshooter Max Kennard, and Kennards partner Navidad Christmas Ramirez. OMara also attempts to recruit his partner Sergeant Jerry Wooters, but Wooters has become lazy and complacent in his job and refuses. Wooters keeps in touch with childhood friend Jack Whalen, who provides him with information on Cohen. Wooters also meets and begins a secret relationship with Cohens etiquette tutor Grace Faraday. ........
