“Neil’s the sort of guy who doesn’t like a crinkle in his work shirt, let alone an ex-gang member dating his daughter. Neil is a very powerful man, so Colby is understandably a little terrified of him.”
And when Colby this week decides to meet with Neil for a “man-to-man” chat, the discussion does not go well.

“Neil makes it clear in about three seconds that he’s not on Colby’s side any more,” says Tim.
