Intoxicated by the fresh kill and the smell of Yankee blood, like a ravenous carnivore, Cole scans the room looking for more prey. His eyes, wild and darting, fall upon the little girl, LeAnn Olson. He steps over, reaches out and grips her upper arm. Pulling her from her father's side, ""You're comin' with us--My Little Pretty!"" ""No!"" cries her father stepping forward. ""I'll go! Take me instead! I'll go willingly; no trouble, I won't cause any trouble! Kill me whenever you want--p-l-e-a-s-e!"" Cole jams his shooter directly into Jim's face. The nine-inch barrel is no more than two inches from his forehead. Cole's thumb pulls back on the hammer and the weapon clicks twice as it cocks. ""How 'bout I just kill ya now sodbuster, jess fer fun ... huh?"" Robert Thrush brings his characters and their stories to life via detailed descriptions of time and place, the Babylon of the high plains, cowtown, Dodge City, Kansas, circa 1875. Thrush's readers live with U. S. Marshal Trent Polley, the Peacemaker, as he defends law and order.
