In salloons all around Dodge, the Rooks have been shooting up bottles of wiskey, glasses, and other objects they get a kick out of shooting. Jess is the quiet gunman with the deadly aim, and who does the bidding of his older brother. Matt and Chester have been on the trail for a while, and Matt is especially looking for a nice long rest. Business owners are up in arms, and Matt is willing to deputize anyone who is willing to step up to the task.
When the brothers visit the Long Branch, Kitty can handle herself against the approaches of the older Rook, but not when he guns down the man who she had been enjoying a drink with. Will Matt be persuaded out of bed now? He’s not at his best, wobbly on his feet, and looking about as weak as a woman. Will he have a chance against the ruthless brothers?
Walking into an apparent ambush, Clay orders Jess to shoot Matt. When he balks, Clay has to handle Matt on his own. The story isn’t quite over, so stay tuned for the final word from the surviving disfunctional gunman. I think he’ll be glad to get out of Dodge. And I think Mat’ll be glad to get the remaining 39 of his 40 winks.
