At ten minutes past ten in the morning, a black man wearing a three-piece suit, a red neck tie and a backward Kangol cap walked into Hyperion Bank. He stopped at the island between the doors and the teller counters, filled out a deposit slip, and joined the line of customers corralled by velvet ropes.
Five minutes later, two women entered the bank. They wore suits identical to the first man, the only difference being the color of their ties. The brunette wore blue, the redhead a pearl white. They both wore black patent leather shoes that whispered quietly across the green-and-white marble floor. The main area of the bank—the teller's stations and the deposit slip island—were separated from the bank offices by an L-shaped garden of rubber plants surrounded by a waist-high brick wall. The two women stood in front of the New Accounts office, and the redhead checked her watch.
The last arrival was a woman wearing a green tie, black sunglasses and a Seattle Seahawks baseball cap. She walked toward the stairs leading up to the second floor and checked her watch before she started up.
