Escaping abuse at a facility for assisted living, Gordon B. Sutherland, twenty-two, locks himself in a high-rise hotel room with a single-action six shooter. He sets it on a wide desk, next to a telephone, six phone numbers on a scrap piece of paper, and a single round of ammunition.
Just one bullet.
Putting his faith in a higher power and a desperate game of Russian roulette, he picks up the receiver, hoping to make peace with those he cherishes most before going with God.
CHAMBERS, a new short story from author Brent Jones, is a gripping tale of compassion and humanity, delivering an ending audiences won’t see coming.
