Facedown on the beach, gripping his ankles, I tried to pull the sonofabitch off his feet. Sonofabitch wasn’t the bad word that I used previously. This was another one, and not as bad as the ﬁrst. His legs were planted wide, and he was strong. Whether my eyes were open or closed, I saw spirals of twinkling lights, and “Somewhere over the Rainbow” played in my head.

Before I could reel backward, the ﬂashlight swung up, one of those long-handled models. Before I was able to dodge, the ﬂashlight arced down and clubbed me, a glancing blow to the side of my head.
