Lately, I've had both Claire, the bank manager, whose bank was robbed, and Doug MacRay, a lifelong Charlestown resident who was the leader of the four-man Townie gang who'd robbed Claire's bank, wearing Hallowe'en masks and ninja outfits, forced her to open the safe at gunpoint, and then took her as a hostage by driving her to a beach in Boston after blindfolding her to make sure she didn't see anything, and then forcing her to walk on the beach until she felt the water on her toes, on my mind a great deal, for some reason.
