"Somehow we must establish the relationship between Duggan and Miss Shaw. Who attended to her correspondence after she went blind?" "I wrote personal letters at her Dictation and read her letters re- m«ived. Her lawyer attended to business matters. He had power of attorney." "I'm afraid I'll have to ask permission to go through her papers." "You'll have to ask her nephew, Brinsley, who is also her heir. I'll call him." Whefh Charlotte had left the room, Foyle looked at Basil quizzically.'"One of those cases where iwe i.iay never find any evidence. l . "Autopsy?" "What will we find? Codeine. !Ro what? She could have taken il •herself. She could have saved up spills for an overdose." Basil walked over lo the win- kiow and stood looking out at the sunny street. "Duggan's murder seems to have been an aftcr- .thought—a clumsy improvisation tinder stress. Miss Shaw's murder was cnrefully planned—if it was i murder '. . ." • * • JTJUINSLEY SHAW was thin and lightly boned with a boxer's dancing step. The hair brushed so close to the smatt erect head wa • smooth and shining silver Briefly, the inspector repealed what be bad told Charlotte "You really think there may be some reference to thi« Detective Jack Duggan in Aunt Kay's cor- •espondence?" Brinsley asked. "There's a possibility." . Brinsley pursed his lips. "You'll have to see her lawyer about her ^afe-deposH box, but Miss Dean can show you the papers in her desk." * • • PHARLOTTE took them to the desk. In the drawers were sundles of letlers, tied with violet ribbon, and a checkbook. I'll look at that first," said Foyle. "Surclj I should remember i[ I made out a check to Jack Dug- Jan!" Would you?" Foyle paused at a page where three stubs were all dated March 21. The Brst payee was described as "florist"; the second, as "Brinsley Shaw"; the third as "J. D." The florist had received $21.50; Brinsley, $500 00• "J. D." $400.00. "How did you sign checks?" "Kariierine Shaw per C. D, That was arranged with the bank when Miss Shaw went blind." "Now your memory haj been jogged, do you recall anything aboul this particular check to J. D.?" "Yes, 7 do." Her lone was faintly defiant. "Last nonth Miss Shaw did ask me lo draw a check and put only the initials of the payee on Ihe stub. I had quite forgotten that the initials were J. D." "To whom did you make out this check?" "I honeslly don't remember. 1 haven't thought of it since." Foyle looked at Charlotte specu- lalively. "It I wrote a check for $400, I'd remember who it was made out to, even if th< money wasn't mine." Charlotte colored, but held her head high. "Misi Sh»w frequently drew J400." "Now, really, this Is rather silly!" put in Brinsley. "We ca: get the payee's uam« tzooi OM /) he canceled checks that came 'ith Aunt Kay's March statement from the bank." Charlotte'! hands were shaking -J she took a manila envelope rom the desk and gave it to Foyle. le riffled through the packet ol checks, then^ glanced at the statement Itself. "No withdrawal of MOO in the debit column, and no canceled aheck made out to any name with initials 'J. D.' " "Then it hasn't been cashed or deposited yet," said Charlotte aintly. "It will come with Ih April statement." "Or it may never be cashed, added Foyle. "Then where is it?" gasped :harlotte. Foyle frowned. "It's not in Dugg«n's apartment. His murderer seems to have taken some trouble o destroy evidence proving thai Miss Shaw employed Duggan." A half-smile lifted one corner o Srinsley Shaw's mouth. "I didn 1 enow the old girl had it in her Hiring a private detective and nQ elling anyone about it—not even tr* invaluable Miss Dean. Or di< she tell you?" The sudden look h :«nt upon Charlotte was shrewi and penetrating. "No, Mr. Shaw. She did nol." Charlotte was angry. DYI.E laid the checkbook aside "When you call in a privatf detective there has lo be some reft son for your not calling the rcg ular police. Cut I doubt if a worn an like Miss Shaw would hire a private detective to invcstigali someone she loved whom she sus peeled of scandal or petty crime. "That's whal I've been telling you all along!" exploded Rrinslcy. ''None Ihe less these check stubs convince me lhat she did hire a private detective." Foyle went on impoptiirbably. "! can UiinV: ol only one reason why such a woman would do so." Brinsley eyed Ihe injector uneasily. "And that is?" "Murder. An attempt to kill you can change the habits of a lifetime. Even then she preferred a private defective to the regular police." (T.
