Doc Morris stepped forward. He would have said "Mrs McGinley, let me tend the boy" but the shot drowned the first and only syllable he uttered and he fell to the floor clutching his thigh.
Lucy McGinley smiled.
"Stop making me waste bullets, Doc!" she said quietly, then screamed at Cole as he stepped forward "Stay where you are!" Her gun barrel moved smoothly from his chest to his head. Then, speaking quietly once more: "Sit on the floor, Sheriff. Or I'll kill you."
Slowly, he sat down.
"The girl's dead." Lucy McGinley laughed. "And the truth died with her"
