Murder Is But A Memory


Sal definitely looked surprised when he saw me standing there with Rocco's pistol aimed squarely at his face. I could see in his sadistic eyes that he was trying to determine if he should go for his gun, which was in a holster under his left shoulder. Common sense won out. He raised his hand in the air.

"You know, Sally, I was kinda hoping you would go for your gun. It would give me all the excuse I needed to kill your sorry ass."

He yelled out for Rocco.

"He can't hear you in the trunk of your car."

    Surely there will be some gunplay before long. You need a reason to plug them both Jake or else they'll hunt you down later! Maybe their car should disappear over that ravine in a demonstration of poetic justice. (Just leave it to the author, Neville!)
