You see, even as- sumingjihc'd want to get into the safe, arid assuming she knew this technical trtck of using - familiar numbers, and assuming she knew the important numbers in Al's life, there's still a hitch. It would have taken a pretty long time, a lot of fiddling around before she hit the lucky combination, wouldn't it? ''Probably." ."She wouldn't have done It—too big a risk of getting caughL" :JI I'll give you a simpler method Was Kemmer bashful about opening the safe In front of people?' .

"1 think I can lake up a story." I sat down in ie chair beside the desk, Healcy ettted down in Al's old swivel lair and watched me, "The hero s Rocky Silone, a hard-working icddler of phony money, who was nking a much-needed rest 'orchy's sanatorium.
