Inherited his job at Buckeye from hia daddy. Jrlarried late in life to Isabel Crown, an old farming family. Has three daughters. Two are married and the youngest, Ginny is still at home. She's a nice kid but a Hitie flighty. Right now she's chasing around with a Eel- low named.Varney who works lor Logan. He's about 10 years older than Ginny and I don't think Logan would approve if he knew." • I gazed at Nathaniel Kree with * ..respect. My visit to him hadn't '• been a mistake, after all. I said, - "Howard Ackerman." , He flicked ashes airily, know Howard well. Nice fellow, neat dresser. By the way, how : Howard?" "Critical," I said. "He was hurt pretty badly." "Howard has his troubles. His wife, mostly. She's older than Howard. When they were married 10 years ago it wasn't so bad, but now it makes a difler- ence—at least it does to Clare Ackerman. She's jealous of Howard, maybe with cause. Can't say I blame Howard too much for doing a little chasing. 1 "What can you tell me about Mrs. Donovan?" _ "Not too much." He admitted it reluctantly. "She's a widow Came here from Detroit—Dearborn to be exact. Has a daughter six or seven years old. Takes good care of the kid and minds her own business." "Do you know a man named Lawrence QuincyJ" Kree'snapped his bony flngsrs "Oh, yeah. He works at Buckeye too, but he won't have a job lorn it he don't stop boozing and settle down. He's got wife trouble, too a Uncy little snip from Dayton . young en.cugb to be his daughter i © 1958 by Robert Martin. By Robert Martin 'he's flying high and wide. Got Quincy so deep in debt he'll never get out. She's chasing, oo." With whom?" I asked, fascinated. "Different ones. The latest is a wholesale grocery peddler out of Columbus. He hits town once a vaek." "I assume that Philip Varney s not married?" "Nope. He lives at the VT. Came lere from Saginaw about three ?ears ago." "A man named Louis Gebhart ives there, too. Do you know him?" "Louie? Sure. Kind ot screwy, >ut harmless. Spent some time tn mental hospital, but seems iretty good now. He comes over here to the station in the e k nings sometimes. Talks a lot about music and economics." "Just a couple of more now,' [ said. "Those dang kids won't be in bed yet. Go ahead." "Mike Brandon." Kree lit his cigarette, his hollow cheeks sucking inward until he had it glowing. Then he said "ftlike's a foreman at Buckeye —shipping department. Been there 20 years, I guess. Got a mean temper when he's riled Almost killed one of my patrolmen over a parking ticket argument Had to jail him, and fine him, too. Owes everybody In town—like Quincy. But his trouble is women and gambling—he don't drink. Lives alone in a little bouse on the edge ot town He's gadget mils." "Gadget nuts?" Kree nodded. "Always buyin a new TV or an outboard motor pow.-r mowers, different kind of guns, movie cameras—I don' know what all." "Is he married?" "H« was, u> auel SUitt-Dav Stritt's oldest girl—but she divorced him. No kids. Mike's a lice fellow, but he's just not dependable." "Nate," I said, "you certainly oiow the people in this town." "I was born and raised here." "You heard about Jake StaggZ" "It's happened before." • • • I parked outside the fence, oak a flashlight from the dash ompartmont, dropped it into a oat pocket and walked up to he gate house. The guard looked jp as 1 stopped in the open door- vay. "Good evening. My name's Bennett Is it okay if I go in- ide?" He consulted a sheet "New alesman, aren't you?" "That's right" "It's okay." He stood up, came o the door and handed me a >rown straw panama. "Is this -ours?" It was the one I'd left at Howard Ackerman's house in the afternoon. "Yes. How did you get it?" "A taxi brought it out. The driver said to give it to you." "Thanks," I said, thinking it had been thoughtful of Clarissa Ackerman. The guard unlocked the gate. _ crossed to where the truck was parked, Bashed the light on the >adlock, saw that the rear doors vere securely fastened, and tben entered the plant by the shipping room ramp. Except for occasional dim lights the place wa» dark. I moved in the silence across the shipping area into the testing and inspection department. The row of round testing drums loomed darkly. I heard a slight sound and saw movement by the testing machine where Howard Ackerman had been struck by the shattered wheel. 1 moved closer, peering intently. A man was standing by the tester. A light came on and 1 saw him hold a Bash on the speed indicator. I stepped forward quickly and turned oo my own flash. The man whirled. I put the beam on his face. It was Lawrence Quincy.
