It was the sort of sunset a hero would ride off into, leaving a slender blonde to bite back tears while calling after him, ‘‘I hope you enjoyed your stay with us, Mr. ’’ Stop it, he told himself. 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.
