Particularly the bit where the male had distracted her attention long enough for the other male to slip around the other side of her quaint vehicle and then hold her at gunpoint.

"What do you want?" She demanded.

"I think that's obvious, young lady – or should I say – young man." Silvestri said in an unpleasant tone. "The Corporation made you people a fair offer, one your parents – God rest their souls – turned down. They uh, passed away and left the farm to your brother – who also failed to see the advantages of the offer we made him. Now, after five years of fruitless negotiations, this land will finally pass to us. No more heirs, no more pointless badgering you people to sell."

"What kind of man" Jenny asked through clenched teeth, "Commits murder for a piece of land?"

"The kind of man who knows he can get away with it!" Edos grinned, and then roared with laughter. "The kind of man, dear lady – who appreciates the finer things in life. Take Mr Herzog over there – he likes antique bikes – has a collection of – how many, Jake?"
