- As much of a fan as I am of these books, there's one thing I still don't understand. How exactly did Russell get shot within the climax of the first book? From what I understand, Patricia and Russell were fighting over the gun and it ended up facing both of them before being shot twice. But even when my mother read the book, she didn't understand it either. Can someone explain the positioning of the two women and the gun for me?
- I have wondered the same thing myself, my friend, and the only conclusion I can come to is that Patricia wound up behind Russell during their fight, and got shot through her. It would have had to have been sheer accident, I'd think, since trying to intentionally set that up probably wouldn't have worked.
