Thai eliminated the two top shelves.. Too high. And the bottom row too. Douglas knew that the pflpk he sought was not on the left of the fireplace. He turned Jo the right, hurriedly pulled vol- ume.after volume from the cases, flipped through the pages. . He could hear Dawson's voice, and the Italian's, just outside the door, but he couldn't make out the words. If Dawson should come back! ^hat was a chance he had to take. ' As he worked he pondered Ara's reaction .to the detective's accusation. Had she actually planned to blame Benthorne's murder on him? He; recalled, unpleasantly, that she had suggested coming out to Benthorne's although he! had 'insisted the idea was his own. But Ara was in love with him. He was sure. Her kisses. She had kissed him before, back in Salt Lake, when she thought—before she ksew her father wasn't the real John Douglas. It didn't add up. That passagewsy passageway.

He'd loved her from the first.moment he spoke to her, in the coffee shop. They were planning to be married, too, as soon as she saw her father. Her bags were packed. Trie porter at her apartment had told him she had wanted to catch a train. Did she really intend to run away, never see him again? Love battled doubt as his thoughts raced on. He couldn't hope to go through every book in the room. There were hundreds If only some of them were dusty, The desk? Dawson had probably searched it thoroughly. Modern desks weren't built with secret drawers any more—at least, they were, Dawson would know where to look for them. How about the wall panels? He tapped several, cautiously, afraid that the detective might hear him. No hollow sounds there. The fireplace? Ke pulled at its projections, pushed its ornaments, hoping against hope that one might give or snap open a concealed strong box. The clock ticked on, above his head. Dawson might return any minute now. That damned clock! Did it have to tick so loud? It was getting on his nerves. Imagine, John Douglas, with nerves.

He reached up to the mantel, pulled the clock away from the wall, reached around to stop the pendulum. * * * f^ MOMENT later he was reading through Ara's letters, her pictures and the marriage certificate were in his pocket. Clever of Benthorne to have the clock over that recess in the mantel. There were other papers too. Re- the street entrance of the passageway. "I knew something was wrong and I thought the cop had seen me duck in here. I tossed away that cigaret Alston found and ran to the hall. but there was _. I figured Ben- thorne was in his study then, but I didn't want to see him right away. So I clucked around the foot of the stairs and into the living room. Come on, I'll show you."

IL would have been simple for Joey to have stepped to the study door, killed Ben- thorne and dashed back down the passageway. But Joey had said he thought Flynn had seen him enter the house. Better hear Joey's story out. "I knew I could go out a window as soon as the cop got away from the gate, so I crouched down here in the dark," Joey went on, when the detective followed him into the living room. ''Then, while I'm waiting here till things quiet down and I cap get out, I hear Benthorne shout "You!" and someone answers him, very soft-like. Then, after about half a minute, the shot! "I already had my gun out, and I stuck my head out around the edge of the doorway—just like this—to get a look and—" A shot ended Joey's story. With a queer look of surprise he swung around to face Dawson again and fell full on his face.
