SOMEONE IS GOING TO DIE ... John Sayre sits in his pick-up truck with his gun in his hand. He has a big decision to make … who is he going to kill? Most likely himself. He surely has a lot to atone for and everything to regret. But he might just turn his gun on someone else first. The good ol’ boys are roaming the back roads hanging ‘the coloreds’ from trees. They would be worth a bullet or two. Perhaps John could even run the local Minister out of town before the fool gives another of his venomous sermons. One thing seems inevitable … a bullet is going to leave that gun and someone is going to die.
