He could have fixed up the time to suit himself." "That sounds as if you think LJlly Warren was killed," Bea Cosgrove said softly. "Don't go putting words in my mouth," Sillwell snapped irritably. He lit a candle, stuck it in the neck of an empty bottle. "My last match," he grumbled. "We're wasting time and it's getting late. You're nosey.
