Here are the last two chapters of my climax/ending (there’s another wrap up chapter, but I’m not planning to resubmit that one). If you get a chance, I’d love your feedback on how well the new ending works. In Ch. 27, I have a gangster carrying a .22 handgun. I know .22 is small, less powerful ammo, but earlier in the book Eric reflects on why the mob sometimes uses .22s for execution–it’s actually quite gruesome.
