In a letter to Cannon, Yvette’s grandfather explains his desire for Cannon to assist his granddaughter in coming out of the shell she has been living in for the past few years. The reasons why he chose Cannon was because he had helped keep the pawnshop safe and his work in ensuring that the community is free of drugs and criminals had not gone unnoticed.
