Henry Pollard had him checked out.  "Does the name Hillyer mean anything to you?" asks Walter Fallon.  Adam says no, why should it.  Walter Fallon tells him that Hillyer was the person who checked up on him.  "When I'm honest I go under my real name, which just happens to be Walter Fallon," says Walter Fallon.  Walter Fallon tells Adam that he was under strict orders to find out everything about him, and Adam asks him where he got his information from.  Fallon says from Jill Harvey.
