“I thought the sheriff was already dead.”

Moosehead County Story Banner ©Jack BoardmanPreviously: Although these associates looked rather ordinary—in a biker-wannabe sort of way—they were intelligent operatives and great at fitting-in to the dive-bar culture. The kind of folks that other folks, once they got past their appearance, found very likable.

The two never engaged in wet-work, they weren’t hit-men—they were adept at gathering information. Better still, they had never been arrested for even the smallest misdemeanor.

His next call was to his Chicago office and ordered his hit-squad to fly immediately to Duluth—they had a town to destroy.

Moosehead City!

Season 13—Adventure 5—Moosehead County—Episode 2—Scene 1…

Along Ridge Road… Sheriff Boomer, Mac and Daisy were headed home along Ridge Road, which was Moosehead City’s version of Duluth’s Skyline Parkway, “Let’s stop for a few minutes and enjoy the view.”

He pulled to the side of the road overlooking downtown Moosehead City.

“Just don’t jump,” Daisy bayed, “I haven’t had breakfast yet.”

“Just don’t jump” ©Jack Boardman“Just don’t jump…”

“I’m too afraid of heights to even THINK about jumping—your breakfast is safe.”

“I’m concerned about French, Boomer.”

“He’s in good hands, Mac,” Boomer replied.

“It’s not that, Boomer. I’m concerned that his bosses will try to take him out.”

Boomer paused as he thought about that, “Sure they could try—but why would they? On the other hand—why not?”

“You have other thoughts?”

“It’s a big risk for them,” Boomer replied, “They already failed with Andy.”

“True enough. Still—they’re pretty ruthless. That just may be the deciding factor.”

Episode 2—Scene 2… at the Superior warehouse… Edward Mariucci met with (the new and improved—Alphonso Jones—my son-in-law. I used his name—it’s about time I used his likeness) “Fonzie” Jones, “I need you to go to Moosehead City and check on Andy French—I’ve not heard from him.”

“What was his assignment?”

“What was his assignment?” ©Jack Boardman“What was his assignment?”

“He was to take-out those people who sold this warehouse—this warehouse that I own,” Mariucci said, “He told me he accomplished that, but that was the last message he sent—he’s been silent since. Find out why!”

“If they caught him, and he’s talking?”

“He’d never talk.”

“Are you sure?” Fonzie asked, “And if in the unlikely chance he is—what then?”  

“Do nothing, just let me know. I’m moving people in place to handle that contingency—up to and including killing the sheriff.”

“I thought the sheriff was already dead.”

“He isn’t Those damn-fools Andy killed blew that—and that’s got the locals stirred-up. It’s only a matter of time before they start looking here.”
