The Last Spin is a short horizontal surface written by Evan Hunter in 1961. Its written most two boys from rival gangs, Tigo and Dave, who were picked to settle an argument by playacting russian roulette after a shooting at a candy shop.

Towards the end they determine to call it quits and go for one last shaft of light but it all ends horribly when Dave dies. The story is set in a dark and eerie basement which i though was a good setting as there was no other distractions and the sound carried out well perpetuallyy clock time the gun clicked.
I theorise that Hunter was trying to communicate people to think about issues like these. The main affair he talked about was peer pressure.

After reading this I think that Hunter did a good job putting his repoint accross.

He wore a commonality and silk hood with an orange strip on each sleeve. The jacket shrieked Enemy, enemy!
To them, enemies misbegottent seperate gangs, seperate teritory, and staying well away from eachother.
That was important because if they ever didnt abide by the rules then they probably would have been in loads of trouble. They didnt even generally like the rest of their gangs. This didnt foreswear them from doing what the gangs told them to though.
