Flash Jab #5

Flash Jab Challenge #5 comes to Bloody Knuckles from our good friend Jim Harrington who, as he said in his submission, skipped the the first 690 words and cut to the chase.

The Posse

by Jim Harrington

Every able-bodied male in the county volunteered to help find the Andrews boy. He was the second child to disappear in the past four months.

I neglected to tell the men two things: I'd already found his body, and I didn't have a suspect. I would have, though, when the killer tried to steer his group away from the gorge by the Franklin farm.

  1. Tight as a tick, Jim. Fits the prompt exact. Big reveal and widescreen setting. All in less words than there are french fries in a serving at MickeyDs. Pretty cool beans, partner. Yeah!
