Stay with reality. You’ve flown a couple of thousand miles to kill a man you never met. Just get it done. The sunset can wait. He hadn’t met the man, but he knew his name. Even if he wasn’t sure how to pronounce it. The man in White Plains had handed Keller an index card with two lines of block capitals handprinted.

There were gay bars in New York that tried hard to look like this place, though it was hard for Keller to imagine why. But Joe’s, he realized, was not a gay bar, not in any sense of the word. He sat on a wobbly stool and ordered a beer. The other drinkers left him alone, even as they left each other alone.
