“This will be a cakewalk!”

Fugitive Banner ©Jack BoardmanPREVIOUSLY: She was pacing the floor and listening to the local news—she’d been doing a lot of pacing and listening for the past several days:

“Leading the news this hour on DALE-FM 106.9—Man found

dead after gunshots were heard by a neighbor—the victim has

been identified as Reverend Gates Read. He died of a single

shot to the head—the sheriff’s department is investigating—

DALE-FM will update this story as we get new information—

In other news…”

Janine Wilbur smiled.

She was startled by a knock on her door, “Who is it?”

“Your husband is dead—we’re here to collect the balance of our fee.”

She looked through the peephole and saw two men dressed as gangsters out of a cheesy old movie, “C’mon lady—open the door. We really don’t want this to get ugly.”

She let them in and just as she gave them the money there was another knock on the door.

“I’ll get that,” the smaller of the two said as he opened the door.

“Hello—I’m Sheriff Silverthorn. You are under arrest.”

Season 15—Adventure 5—Fugitive—Episode 1—Scene 1… On the Bluff overlooking Moosehead County Jail… Andy Carstairs had been given another chance to run an “operation.” He was taking the job seriously—he knew his big brother wouldn’t tolerate ANY mistakes—and even HIS life might be forfeit!

“Okay fellas, according to their usual schedule, no prisoners are taken to the courthouse for arraignment until 8:00am. We’ll storm the place at 7:30 and get Janine—and kill her husband.”

“Roger that, boss,” Forsmark replied, “This will be a cakewalk!”

Andy Carstairs planned the assault ©Jack Boardman“This will be a cakewalk!”

Andy and his crew drove down to the highway and parked in a relatively hidden place off the side of the highway.

Episode 1—Scene 2… Inside the Moosehead County Jail… What Andy and his crew could NOT know, was that US District Court judge Miles Lord had ordered Rupert Festus Wilbur, Jr. be immediately taken to Saint Paul to be arraigned on federal charges due to his having crossed into Canada and allegedly committing crimes there.

The marshal’s van passed right by where Andy and crew were hidden.

At precisely 7:30am, Andy and company stormed into the Moosehead County jail.

Without a single word—they shot Deputy Smith to death.

    I am not down with a Police Officer being brutally shot to death by the bad guys. It is getting exciting, however. Wilbur just skating through again by going to Saint Paul. Good story 🙂
