She wanted companionship, for the first time in a long while. And she knew there was no one she could trust. "Heyl" She jumped at the call, whirled quickly to face Fred Sillwell. He sat in partial shelter of a ledge, with a bottle in his hand. "Come on over," he called. Bea walked toward him slowly, returning with each step to the present on Speare Island. **I'v« been trying to get a chance to talk to you alone. AH our privacy blew up with >the house." "You upset by King George and his queen?" He scowled. "I cant figure what got into George," "Maybe he found out about you and Nona." "You poke Into everything. But what difference could that make to George now? That was a long time ago, and it didn't mean anything anyhow. I gave her i break." He tilted the boitle. "How come you drink so much?" Bea asked. "I've been asked that before My folki even sent me to a psychiatrist once.* "A good one?" "Most expensive one there was," You can get a. chance to see what a smart operator I am. We came to the island to make pictures." - Bea'thought it over. H l wonder if the title of the picture was to be 'Days in an Island Eden'?" "You catch on fast. And I brought a couple of Eves with me. You know the sort of thing. Bathing in the limpid water. And a few long shots of Harding through a telescopic lens dubbed in at the right places. I'd like to have seen Harding's face when he : 1 himself on the screen apparently watching a pair of nude bathers." "You were going fco show K to him?" "Don't you think he'd have paid plenty not to have his little pet island empire upset by laughter and possible investigations." "Why didn't you make the picture?" "The fishermen were camped where we had to land to keep out of Bight until we got our background shots. We used up the last of our fu«l lying offshore and staying close In. Then the blow caught us." "End of buaineii deal," Be* prodded. 'I land on my feet," Sillwell boasted. "I've got a better angle. It'i surer and'U pay more. A murder rap ii better than ar*y amount of pictures." "You still think Harding killed Lilly WarrenT And the—fisherman?" "Who else. It's a cinch, I know enough so he can't afford to let me spill it." (To Be OaUnaed) HA7E.L!
