Helena pointed the gun and pulled the trigger. The roar of the pistol firing was deafening within the carriage. Her attacker cried out and staggered back from the open door. As his snarling face disappeared behind a cloud of gunpowder smoke she heard the other door being wrenched open. The horses whinnied and stamped their hooves in alarm, jerking the carriage just as Helena turned towards her second assailant. She overbalanced, bounced off the seat and landed face down on the floor. Strong fingers clamped tightly around her ankle.
