DEVIL’S SIDE POCKET
It seemed like the right thing to do.
That city fellow Dr. Hayle wanted to conduct an archeological dig on Elvin Kristiansen’s ranch, and Elvin isn’t the type to stand in anyone’s way of doing something good. He was raised to live up to his last name, which is basically Son of Christ.
When Dr. Hayle begins to tell lies – then get caught telling them – you’d think Elvin would flip his lid on the darn city slicker.
He will. It’s just going to take awhile.
