A dark silk dressing gown, its belt tighUy clinched at the waist, .set off his broad shoulders and long flanks. Basil spoke first. "This is Inspector Foylc, Dr Zimmer. I am Basil Willing." Zimmer smiled with sudden arrusement. "Just how many Dr> Willing: are there?" ^. "This is the real Dr. Willing." Woylo showed his badge to Zimmer. "The other Willing was the impostor. 1 * "And j-ou were the one I picked as a faker!" Zimmer's smile faded. "It must be a serious matter if Ihe police are taking it up." "It is serious," said Foyle "Murder." Zimmer himself took the wing chair beside the hearth now cold and bare. "It's hard to believe that little man capable of murder." "He wasn't the murderer," saui Basil. "He was the victim. And he died halt an hour after he left jour house. I was with him. He showed the usual symptoms of alkaloid poisoning. False gaiety and physical relaxation, followed by drowsiness and menial confusion." ".Morphine?" "Or its methyl compound, codeine." "You're a doctor of mcdfclne?" put in Foyle, "Yes. Like Dr. Willing, I specialize In psychiatry." Zimmer turned back to Basil. "I'm sure you will agree that in some cases morphine produces lethargy and <om», while in others it causes »Wirium «a4 caavulsiou. You BosirWilling^ »y H«!e« McCfe>» can't even rely on the time element." "Most murderers are not mc- dicnl men," responded Basil. "And in either case—^morphine or codeine—one thing is fairly certain: Ihe first symptoms o[ a fatal dose appear in 20 to 40 minutes." • • * '"PHIS time Zimmer's smile was rueful. "You are thinking of the cocktails he drank here." Zimmer turned to Foylc. "As Dr. Willing will tell you, all the cocktails came out of one silver pitcher. So, if he were poisoned here, it must have been after his own grass was filled." 'Each glass was a different color," Basil explained to t'oyle. "So once he had taken his glass, it coutd always be identified as his." "He was standing alone when Otto served him his first cocktail," said Zimmer. "The only people near him while he was drinking the second were Mrs. Yorke and. ..." 'NJyself?" Basil smiled. "It doesn't have to be Mrs. Yorke or me. He left his cocktail on a table for several minutes while he was talking to us and then finished it. Anyone might have passed that table except Miss Shaw and you. I was watching you both at the time." "Are you sure he wasnt poisoned before he came here?" mg- gesled Zimmer. Basil shook his head. "The first symptom appeared as he and I left the house and walked toward the avenue—a rather foolish euphoria. He had been here at leasl 30 minules. He was poisoned here." /'But that's Cfuite impossible!" protested Z i mfm e r earnestly. "iVone of my giftsts is capable of such a thing. Perhaps he mistook some sleeping pills he had for vilamin capsules or some other medicine he was in the habit of taking before dinner. Who would want to kill a man lUce that, anyway?" 'A ma* lik« what?" d«manded Foyle. "That's the other reason we're here: we have no idea who or what he was." "I was speaking In general terms. 1 meant a man who sccrned so timid and inoffensive. I never had seen him before tonight" "How did you happen to invite him to r.'.rrticr?" "He came as a guest of another guest. Miss {Catherine Shaw." Ziminer said. Basil's attention kindled. -The elderly lady who i« lam« and blind?" "Yes. She spoke to you, didnt she?" Zinimer grew UxiughlfuL "She was sitting .lere by the fire when you first came in. She mus* have heard me say I identified you by a process of elimination. Did she mistake you for the man she had invited as Willing?" jgASIL nodded. "Probably. She told me my voice was different tonight. Afterward she looked quite ill with shock when a thirteenth gtiest was announced as Willing.". "I remember," said Z.immer. "She was so surprised she dropped her slick and I picked it up. She asked me who you were then. I [Hdn't want to worry her by telling her there was a gate-crasher in the room so I told her you were a friend of my sister's." 'Did she know that I and the other Willing left the house before dinner?" 'She discovered it. At table she asked me where Dr. Willing was sitting. I told her he hat) been called to his hospital. Then she asked me what had become of my sister's friend. I told h«r that he «as not at dinner—that he had jnst dropped in for a cocktail. She spoke as If she honestly believed Ihe impostor was Ur. Willing—or am I imagining that?" •But why would an impostor wish to pass himself ofT as Basil Willing to anyone like Miss Shaw?" Toyle was thinking aloud. Zfmmer siglKd. "I suppose you will have to question her, but please spare her as much as you can. Sh«'i 8« yearj old, clinging to life by sheer force of will."
