Is the "flare" in the mirror from a flashlight the man is holding, a muzzle flash from a second pistol, or starring from a just-fired bullet?"
Great cover art by Belarski!

My guess would be that it comes from a flashlight the gunman is holding--the same flashlight that's caught the woman in its beam.
