Synopsis
It was fifteen minutes until midnight. Under quiet Idaho skies, Nick Siroonian's Amalgamated Show was about to close for the night. The rest of the stores on Thieves' Alley were already rolled down and deserted. The talking people had left their positions in front of the strip joint, the Ten-in-one, and the noisy motordrome. The lights on the Ferris wheel were out, no longer circling their endless way through the dark night. Stan Braden was working on a customer. He was going into the last hour of a successful night's play, hat shoved back on deep black hair, his eyes tired. He'd relieved a stubborn farmer of eighty-five dollars, then caught a young one for twenty more. Both men had walked away, neither believing it. Now a loner stood before his counter and was getting argumentative. Braden spoke. 'Look, mister, I'll count the marbles. You made a sixty-one. Sixty-two pays.' 'Yes, but——' 'No buts. I'll draw it out for you.
