It must have been yours. "You couldn't let well enough alone. Oh, you pretended noi to be satisfied, but that was a cover (or the snooping you felt you had lo do to make sure there weren 1 loose ends, that you were in the clear." George shook his head "It was a good act. but it didn r go over with me. And Nona tol< me how upset you were. You let down when you were alone with her." , "The obvious thing to say v " Bea said dryly, "is that all this is a re< herring. An attempt on your part to prove your innocence. Or Nona McGuire's innocence." George Bascombe s n a p p e "Trfave Nona out of this." "1 can't. She's In it up to her neck. And so are you.

She was a little drunk, and had some more with us. I guess Harding h ilready told her ofl because she was sore as hell We'd salvaged some of the cameras and some film that was packed well enough so tt wasn't damaged. Lilly declared herself in on the deal. Shi said Harding might not be willini to marry her. but she could stij get him into position for pictures Fted thmight she could help a lot "And I found out about it am killed her to protect Harding?" "Not Harding," Bascombe sai( "I know you dont like him. No I'd say you did it to protect your sell, so you could go on with you own plans." "While I was at it then," Be said, "I should have finished o the four of you too." George took ner serious!. That's what's been worrying m lately.
