Come along, Flynn." Douglas stepped to the window, started to climb out. Flynn's service revolver appeared in his hand almost as if by magic. "If you try (o run, I'll let you have it," he warned.

Flynn moved quickly to the mantel. "He's right, Captain. There's a hole here, but it's empty now." Dawson studied the papers, but made no comment.

"I'm arresting Douglas for both murders," Dawson said quietly. Ara broke from her sweetheart':-: embrace, turned on the detective. "You can't! You can't! Don't you see he's been lying, lying to save me! ..." Her voice rose to a scream. "Ara! Ara, darling. , . . Please!" Douglas pleaded. c: You don't know what, you're saying." "But I do!"
