Minister McGinley's study was a big room, spacious and imposing, but filled as it was with Samuel and Zeke, Eddie and Mickey, the Sheriff and the Minister, and now the two new arrivals Doc Morris and Clint, it seemed a little overcrowded to Sheriff Cole.
The Sheriff didn't like crowds when he was working. Too many imponderables; too many variables. And in an us-and-them situation, too many pairs of eyes to watch and not enough pairs of eyes to do the watching.
Cole raised his Colt to add authority to his words.
"Let's get this room organised, Doc."

    I felt claustrophobic, and I wasn’t even there!
