“The Bank Jobs” / A Memorable Fancy #040

Russ had several bank jobs to his credit. In one of them, he killed a bank guard and a patrolman. Finally cornered, there is a shoot-out that terrifies the neighbors and makes headlines. Russ is mortally wounded, but does not immediately die. Medics rush him to a hospital, where his brain is extracted just before his body gives out. Authorities want to keep his consciousness alive so that he can be tried and punished. Henry, a desperately unemployed landscaper, volunteers to receive Russ’s mind transplant into his own brain. Gradually, their thoughts entwine. Henry confesses, deeply regrets the widows, orphans.
