In The Sting, Loretta Salino, Lonnegan's assassin, masquerades as a waitress in a diner in order to get close to Hooker. Why the need for all the subterfuge? Considering how easily she herself was eventually killed, couldn't she have accomplished the same thing herself? Hooker was a small timer after all.
