Meanwhile, sher rummaged in the tents and discovered a radio.
sher sucked in his breath, ready to run for his life, but the lights were too far upslope to be the gunmen returning.
“I wondered where the bullets would enter my body,” sher recalled thinking.
sher lapsed into prayer, imploring Allah to make the executions stop.
These headlamps, sher realized, belonged to a team of sherpa descending to base camp.
Suddenly, however, they now changed their minds and went over in a body to sher Afzul.
When you was sher'f you couldn't do what the law said you couldn't—now could you?
The tide, however, was beginning to turn in favour of sher Ali.
You have to keep up the law when you're a alderman or sher'f. With me, it's different.
"That's Roy's fault, sher'ff, not our'n," leered the glib old man.
