Molly Flanagan’s Uncle Dewey was eccentric, but he wasn’t crazy. If he was menacing his brothers with his old six-shooter, he must have had a reason, and it didn’t mean he should be institutionalized. But that’s what the family did to Dewey, and it’s why Molly Flanagan and Bull Cochran had to make the long trip from Texas to the Flanagan estate in Knoxville, Tennessee.
