Quote: from White Elephant Dead: The figure whirled, face shielded with a handful of folders, and lifted the other arm. Maybe it was instinct. Maybe is was a childhood memory of HIGH NOON. Maybe it was her recent rereading of an Eve Gill adventure by Selwyn Jepson. Whatever, Annie dived behind the rain barrel, scrabbling like a land crab, as the gun cracked.
