The DOORBELL RINGS, followed by POUNDING on the door. Napolitano rushes to open it to detectives Deland and Gallardo, who stand ready, weapons drawn.

NAPOLITANO
Took you long enough to get here.
DELAND
Took you long enough to answer the door.

The cops holster their guns as they enter.

Napolitano leads the two detectives on a tour of the house, pointing out the locked sliding glass door to the beach.

NAPOLITANO
No forced entry, no sign of violence. Iím thinking she knew the guy.
GALLARDO
What was he looking for?
NAPOLITANO
I donít know, couldíve been anything.
DELAND
Anything like what?
NAPOLITANO
What, you think Iím holding out on you?
DELAND
I think if you want us to go outside channels, we wanna know whatís goiní on.
Napolitano realizes he has to give them a little something.
