That pistol bothers me. Is it new? Is it traceable? Does it have prints? Will she use it on herself? Did he leave town for an alibi or so she doesn’t shoot him? I guess I am too literal minded! If the other guy isn’t dead, won’t he reappear and tell her what happened? Why wouldn’t she just blow both guys off and get a life? I enjoyed the intrigue and obviously, the story made me think, a rare occurrence! Nice job!
