    It all began with a simple phone call one night after dinner. “Collin,” my father hollered up the stairs, “It’s for you. It’s Katie, and she sounds upset.” As I came downstairs to pick up the phone, I was not happy. I was tired and had looked forward to a nice quiet evening at home, not another crazy mission with Katie. Thirty minutes later, however, Katie’s red Ford GT swung into our driveway, and Katie was leaning on the horn before the car came to a full stop. Grabbing my suit coat from the couch
