Double Barrel by Robert Vaughan

When I was 13, I used my Dad's double barrel shotgun to chase James into the shower. I turned the water on while he pleaded. Later Jeff said he'd asked for it. I wasn't sure. It was all I thought about once I was in Afghanistan.

How can you say so much in so little. Also the timing is so current, although, personally, I wish it wasn't.

Wow, strong material and written so tightly. Just like the rest of your work: timely, insightful, deep.

I just watched "Hurt Locker" last night, and then read "Double Barrel." Your title says it all! Powerful, mesmerizing, haunting.
