— A SECOND CHANCE AT LIFE OR DEATH —
Jacob Harris sat in his cell waiting for an escort to the gallows. A door clanged open and shut. He squeezed his eyes shut and swallowed. The sound of urgent footsteps drew closer and stopped at his door. “Jacob.”
“The Last Sunset” is a short story about a prisoner awaiting an escort to the gallows, sentenced to hang for the killing of two lawmen. But an unexpected event forces him to choose between death or the chance to avoid death.
