A Gun to the Head


"A Gun to the Head": Trevor, the hero of Blaine Thurier's A Gun to the Head, is facing one dismal evening. His wife, Grace, is hosting a dinner party with her appallingly obnoxious boss Dwayne and his daft wife, Audrey. An unexpected call from Trevor's long-lost hustler cousin Darren brightens things up. Given an opportunity to slip out, Trevor arranges to meet Darren for a beer at a cavernous Vancouver strip joint known as the Penthouse. After a brief hello, inveterate schemer Darren bluntly hits his cousin up for five grand to help build his “empire.” Trevor is supremely disappointed by this request, but his night is about to get much, much worse.

A gun to the head is a challenge to one's courage, skill, and desire for self- preservation. The gun limits the range of possible options but the choice is still governed by what is important to the agent, for example whether to survive or act bravely.
