“He’s riding hard. Something’s wrong,” Brandon murmured. He adjusted his seat, pressed his knees to his mount’s flanks and urged his horse down the hillside.

“A wagon is stuck in the river.”
“An old man is caught up. His head is above water, but I don’t know how long he will last.”
Early June 1836

The driver had been easy to manipulate—a young man who looked more at her smile and the bit of lace she showed at her ankle than worry about the irregular nature of her situation. The rider in the coach was another matter entirely. A reluctant sigh escaped as she pulled the dueling pistol from her brocade reticule.
