Just the confident, assured lone of the supreme, but thwarted—egotist. I wanted to look at Cravath, but I didn't dare. I could only hope that he was alerted, ready and on his toes. Then the murderer made his supreme bid. He moved without haste, leisurely even, to the exact middle of that Hltle moonlit strip. But suddenly the glistening tape he held slackened, tell to the ground. Slowly he brought both hands up in from of him. And though I'd known what to expect, 1 had to force back a gasp. The dark thing clinging to his right hand ^.looked, In this strange light, like «**. a hideous and unnatural growlh. . A few short swift steps down the path ... an arm drawn back . then swung powerfully forward A sliver of moonlight caught the dark object, splattered off it like sparks ofl onyx. Once again, Death started down the Peacock Path. With a half-choked cry Cravath sprang up from his crouch behind -the chains. A burst light exploded in the opposite row of evergreens. And the hollov, clank sounded, the clank of har< material smashing against metal The streaking black object bounced off the piping, rose hal a foot into the air and went on It slowed deflected, abruptly harm less, and disappeared into thi shadow of a tree. The killer stood, his head poised like a snake's, a slatue painted by mooribeans. Amazement, frustration and rage swept his face as a torch from the evergreens dienched his back in light. The killer was caught in a three way trap. The light behind him Cravath coming up from the cliff myself moving into the open: He glanced around, swiftly, fearfully, like a cornered animal. 1 ould se« his eyes, luminous and arting. I walked slowly forward, the ;un in plain -sight. His own weap- in had failed, and he had reached or no other. But even unarmed, he vas a dangerous and deadly man. I said, over the padding sound if Cravath's approaching feet and as the torch converged, "Don't ry tricks. This is ready to go off. \nd, believe me, I'm not fooling. 1 ' • « • f WILL never forget the look Mnrston Cravath gave me. I ind tricked him, robbc<l him cf one o( bis last illusions. But t had seen no other way. I took a backward step and spoke to the killer: "You tried to dll Marston Cravath because his death would have given you virtual control of the business and wanted something else, even more than you wanted money Aside from these reasons, you lated him—he's always been the man you wanted lo be.'* Jack Dumont started to spring but stopped os I whipped up the gun. I went on: "Two attempts failed and before you could dream up another trick Ames \Varburton found out abou the bonds. He went to you first being your protege. He though Cravath himself had taken them.' Cravath gasped involuntarily Off to my right, Dave Sladen. thi third point in this triangular trap shuffled his feet. Dumont gave a harsh laugh 'Pure supposition!" "•Yes," I admitted, "but pretty close, I'll bet. You probabl stalled Ames, suggesting that yo meet at the end of this path ti talk it over." "I suppose I picked up Ames am filing him over the cliff?" "You were more subtle. Per haps you planned to pin the the! on Ames and you saw a way t got rid of him and if rnuvdr were ever proved, Cravath would b« suspected. Or U suicidi w«rc i]spected. it would be because e'd turned thief. "You may have seen the pos- ibilities of the Peacock Path long go. It's similar to a bowling alley Vnd Mr. Cravath was a crack wwler, once. He's Kot a trophy or bowling in his study. Yoi oubtless knew too that his old owling balls were in the altic. "Your problem was simple. Ge' mes out on the edge of the clifl nd let him have it from about 3l eet oil, with a fast heavy ball. A win, incidentally, of the one ovei here under the trees." He looked nt me as I hope nevei 0 be looked at again. "You got Aines out there by tealing his watch which he prob- bly put down somewhere afle n's arrival here when he un dressed. You also sneaked jowling ball out of the attic an lid it under one of these trees The same way you did todn Then, when the coast was clea hat night, you went out here t keep your appointment. Only yo vent early and planted the watch outside of the chains. "Ames came finally and stood at the chains, waiting tor you. And saw hEs watch on the grass beyond hcm. He had no idea how it had iVOtten there. But, naturally, he stepped over to gel it. When he stooped down, you simply let fly. A friend of mine in New York has established that you're a better Dowler than Mr. Cravath ever was. What's more, he hasn't bowled In years. The date on his trophy Is 1932." He was a tough •cuslomer, with a mind like ice. He fixed that glare on me, said, "Just why did you investigate me? And, comes to that, who are you to be investigating, anyhow?" "Never mind me," I said. "But 1 investigated you because you made a slip. Just a little one, but it pul me on Ihe track. When Sladen found Ames' watch on the rocks that night you confirmed that it was Ames' watch. You added that you'd seen him 'nddling with It in the office the other day.'" He started. And I shot at him, "Ames hadn't carried thai watch i'or more thon a month," 'elevision- bnite, Tomorrow 'MCT, Memphis. Channel ^ SATURDAY NIGHT.
