I'll conserve battery power by skipping over the next part of Evgeny's story. I've already told how the criminals got prime refugee housing.

They made it to the Door County redoubt before the bridges at Sturgeon Bay were closed, well before the heroic final stand. #zompocalypse

Evgeny's boss didn't have the network in Door County that he had in Chicago, but he still had a lot of cash. It still meant something then.

The crime boss used that cash for more than bribing officials who could give him good housing. He also used it to obtain...pharmaceuticals.

It started with getting sedatives from "official sources" to calm his still distraught wife. The drugs also kept Aiden quiet and compliant.

Evgeny and the driver became busy running the crime boss' errands. The overcrowded redoubt was full of opportunity for men like them.
05:00 AM #
The boss eventually formed a partnership with some port guards. It allowed him to send Evgeny and the driver on trips into zombie territory.
05:03 AM #
They took boats down the coast to get high-value supplies from places abandoned to the zombies. Liquor, coffee, cigarettes, drugs...

Nobody was supposed to leave or enter the redoubt without authorization, but as long as officials go their cut, the operation thrived.
