I saw the Minister rise onto his haunches. I reckon nobody else noticed him because they was all looking at Clint and Zeke fighting.
McGinley frightened me. His face - all bashed in, still dripping blood - seemed blank, as if there was nobody inside. His eyes were white edged and his lips were drawn back from his teeth so he looked like a rabid coyote confronted by a puma. I half expected him to give out a howl, or creep backwards snarling, the way a coyote does when it's met with its own death.
But he did none of those things.

    Love the coyote reference. All very visceral! Terrific.
