“If we follow our regular procedure for the relocation of witnesses, it would take much longer than that. You see, creating a new personality implies manufacturing a believable personal and family history, a working background, a lot of legal documents; such as, birth certificate, drivers license, passport, social security number, IRS returns and so on.

Vic was now enthusiastic. “What are we waiting for? Let’s start me on this new road.”
“Wait a minute,” Dick cautioned, “it’s not that easy. Before you start working, I want you to be fully aware of what this change of identity is, and why I am helping you."
