ONE: THE HUNTER
The same water that mechanizes the menace lurking ahead drips off Cooper’s furrowed brow, crackling and disappearing into the savannah blur. There are not many hours left in the day—but by the heat alone you wouldn’t be able to tell—and only one shotgun shell left in his bandolier. Cooper’s journeyed a long way and, knowingly, into an ancient trap. Older than the hoary leather encircling his waist, he’s been around long enough to know that there’s no ballad sung in hazy bars to lionize death or victory out here—for there’s no one left with enough verve in him to sing it. Blood, his or his enemy’s, will be enough to justify the trip and the cost.
