Never a dull moment with Jenny. I wonder why she’s got an empty cylinder. Shoot anyone recently?
I like the chemistry between these two. She holds her own, and he seems to take her slipperiness in stride. Layers upon layers with her.
Savvy pistoleros and watchers of too many John Wayne movies will know that one should never let the firing pin rest against live ammunition, as this is an invitation to accidental discharge. It’s good safety practice to leave the chamber under the hammer empty, until the hour is nigh.
You’ve painted a vivid and wild image once more in the first few chapters of this Himalayan Valhalla, complete with Summanus’ self-deprecating wit.
‘Maybe it’s the suit’. The whole section there really struck me for some reason. I really liked the ‘Pinstripes instead of colored skin.’
‘I guess that means she’s not dead’ made me laugh. Again, you’ve pegged the dry humour of the noir style.
Thank you kindly, sir! Summanus was indeed a wry fellow. The Mandarin Oriental in Bangkok is a historic and world-famous hotel, though alas I didn’t get a chance to stay there when I was in Thailand. As far as I can tell, the real building at the time had only two stories (very unusual, when it was built in 1876 almost everything in Bangkok had only one). Mark remembers elevators, but I doubt him on that account. A modern hotel has been sort of wrapped around the old 19th century building, but I believe this is a picture of the original structure: https://goo.gl/maps/LuNpEdNJDpv
