“But he died according to Jimmy Silverthorn.”

Return to Danger Bay Banner ©Jack BoardmanPREVIOUSLY: Carstairs was on first watch for all of five minutes before mounting his horse and heading-out to find his remaining gang-members.

He rode to his cabin and was pleased to find his gang there.

As Carstairs entered the cabin he was welcomed by his gang members: Sarah McCoy, Sandra & Susan Williams, Dakota Kidd, Ralph James, Tom Truly, Jim Driscoll, Jon Smith.

“We were led into a trap and AJ was murdered!”

“Payback time, Boss?” Sarah McCoy asked.

“Against the so-called Posse, yes,” Carstairs replied, “But—there are too many Indians for us to deal with.”

“Maybe we should just lay-low for a few weeks,” Jim Driscoll suggested, “The Posse hasn’t found this place.”

“Good idea Mr. Driscoll,” Carstairs replied, “And they don’t know you and the others.”

“Do you want us to mix with the locals?”

“In ones and twos, maximum,” Carstairs agreed.

Season 18—Adventure 2—Return to Danger Bay—Episode 9… Scene 1… Moosehead City Saloon… Sarah McCoy & Jim Driscoll walked into the Moosehead Saloon—the saloon wasn’t all the busy for this time of day.

“Let’s hang out for an hour or two and just listen.”

“Let’s hang out for an hour or two and just listen.”

“I agree Jim,” McCoy replied, “This appears to be a well-managed saloon.”

Episode 9… Scene 2… Moosehead City Saloon… As it happened—Boomer and Chris Earp—who had been on patrol, decided to wet their collective whistles at the Moosehead City Saloon.

“Check-out that fellow wearing a red vest,” Chris whispered, “He sure looks like AJ Carstairs.”

“But he died according to Jimmy Silverthorn.”

“But he died according to Jimmy Silverthorn.”

“A twin, perhaps?”

“Let’s amble over and strike-up a conversation,” Boomer suggested.

“Good idea.”

“Howdy stranger, I’m called Boomer,” Boomer said, “You look a lot like an old friend of mine.”

“Really?” the stranger replied, “Who might that be?”

“AJ Carstairs.”

“He’s my evil twin—I’m Josh Carstairs.”

“We know your brother William as well,” Chris said with a truly wicked grin.

“Do you work for him?” Carstairs asked.

“No, sir,” Boomer replied, “We’re looking for him—so we can arrest him—he killed your twin.”

“No great loss,” He replied, “And good luck finding Bill.”

Unfortunately—Sarah McCoy overheard their conversation.
