Short Summary

Was she here, watching her murderer preparing to bury her? He shivered at the thought, yet it was not an entirely unwelcome sensation. With an eye on the thickening storm clouds, he hauled up the corpse and continued climbing the hill. Reaching the top, he shook her off.

Whirling, Eric fired, striking Buck in the chest and propelling him backward into the concrete wall. Aiming at the killer’s face, Buck squeezed the trigger. He kept firing until the pistol was empty. Then he yielded to the darkness enfolding him. From far away he heard voices, then nothing.
