Amon» the wild thoughts that flashed through my mind was one concerning Ginger. Maybe he'd found out about us. Or maybe the federal authorities had caught up with him on income lax evasion charges. *;• Alter ha greeted me I immediately rilled Ginger out. Walk- Ing'over to his big black car, t one that looked like a hoarse, siobbered over me. A chauitc was at the wheel and Boge made me get in the • back wi him. "Let's go to your apartment/, I looked at him inquiring! , He'd always preferred to have n come ovei to his place,'so' I le vaguely uneasy about Ginge again. He sat down and handct me the speaking tube. II was ; who had to give directions. As we drove along I becanif more and more uncomfortable "Income iax?" I inquired. He shook his head. "Latei later!" , ' ' •When we got to the Towers nr dismissed the chauffeur. W walked in and the doorman sa luted me anci beckoned to one o the boys who came running up. tc get jny oags. "Let's go upstairs," said Boggio, impatiently. "Wait fill I get my key." The desk clerk was surprised to see me back so soon. There was no mail and no messages, ani. I left him in the middle -of ; sentence. Boggio was nervousl,\ tapping Ills foot in front of (he. elevator. The moment we 'got into the apartment he flopped in an armchair, panting for breath. ' ' "Virgil," I said, "you're killing me. What's it all about?" 'Don't talk so loud!" *, * * K made me pull up a chair • beside, him, took some newspaper clippings from his breast pocket and handed them to me. ' They were about the shooting ol a racketeer,.Al Simms,:by one o' his men, Lefty Ilugg. Simms name seemed vaguely familiar and (hen I remembered he wa. one of the thorns in Boggio's side I handed the clippings back. "You ought to be happy about the whole thing." ; -' He made an uncouth sounc' "Happy!" 'Besides, what concern' £ if of ars?" 'Plenty!" ••',•/'•• He leaned forward and began Baking in n hoarse whisper . . . .fot only was Boggio involved this affair but he was in it up nis neck. It was ho who'd had mms bumped of! and now it was ckfiring on him. > He'd been casually acquainted ith Rugg who was tired of work- 'g for Silnms and had ortercd to .vilch allegiance. Apparently ugg hated his boss with all the itcnsily of a guy who's a bit uii- lianced. He didn't think Simms .as paying him enough and was nxibus to sell out. But Boggio was too smart to .akc in a traitor. At least he nought he was, for he made a alai mistake. He nurtured Hugg's latred lor Simms to a point where le was ready to do anything. Then Boggio casually mentioned hat if ever an accident happened o Simms he'd give the person v'ho caused it a little reward o£ :ay 10 grand, and then he'd see ibout a job. The temptation to io away with a troublesome rival without becoming directly in; volved was something Boggio wouldn't resist. But he'd reck- >ned without Hugg's greed, flrm- y believing that the killing would nly take place when the set-up vas perfect. rfowevcr. convinced that Boggio -iad undertaken to stand oack of whatever he did, Ilugg had let his .'celings get the upper hand prematurely. A* few days ago he'd shot'Simms in cold blood, then he'd gone to Boggio. Naturally ;the latter had come across with ithe promised cash but he'd also given Rugg hell. Didn't he know better (nan to pull a job without preparing an out for himself? Hugg had then called Boggio a .lirty double-crosser. He'd shot 3imms because he'd told him to, ind if they caught lip with him •le'd drag Boggio in. A few hours ater he'd been arrested and :harged with the killing. He ladn't talked yet, but Boggio was :crtain he'd do so at the trial. It .vas my job to save Uugg's skin inii at the same time Boggio's.
