When Daniels was put in a charge of a detail aimed at getting Barksdale, he prevailed on the commander of the C.I.D. auto theft squad to give up his best man - Detective Leander Sydnor. Time and again, Sydnor has proven himself to be fearless, patient and competent - attributes that might have marked him for promotion in a healthier institution than the Baltimore City Police Department. In the estimation of Detective Lester Freamon, however, Sydnor continues to climb.
