    • Roy Staley: (about crime boss Ronnie Ives) He assembles a crew of strangers in a Keyser Söze manner, none of them knowing each other, and thrusts them into his meticulously pre-planned heists.
      Keyser Söze was a fictional character in the 1995 film The Usual Suspects, written by Christopher McQuarrie and directed by Bryan Singer. The character is a rarely seen kingpin, like Ronnie Ives who pulls off a heist and then disappears without a trace.
