THE STORY hrllrvvK .(h.-H I ir.inrt Lynch It pnrlner ller- w M knife i nrllilx film nn- !'» jurh LILY WYNDAM was silent (ol a moment, then she went on "Braun was a mess. When ht reeled out into the corridor both the torches were on him and had a good look. Our Germani. playmate was wearing white pajamas. About half of him was covered with blood. "With his right hand he wa. 1 'holding his left shoulder, like this." Lily gestured. The blopc came from there. He must have been stabbed. If there had been a shot, I would have heard it :Braun didn't appear all the next ^ay. The day after he'd rigged njp that black sling and the official story that he'd come a crop- iper in the storm." "What, Mademoiselle Poirot, iare your deduction's?" "I think Braun was being 'burglarized and had the bad luck : to wake up and the burglar let •him have it." "Burglarized of what?" "How should I know? Herr 'Bnum may, of course, be the custodian of the ruby from the eye of the sacred idol. Or on the other hand, he may not. What I hnd in mind was that someone was trying to find out just who and what Manfred Braun really is. Possibly by thumbing through _his private papers. And was interrupted. But this little attempted homicide'on deck tonight alters my theory." Once more Lily rather nervously examined the emptiness around us. "Which wii," ihe went on in a very low voice In"that the burjlw wu «n emissary of Viggo's. I don't care what he says about 'old acquaintance.' I wouldn't be surprised if he had never laid eyes on Braun before he got aboard in Bremen. Were you watching his face when that knife buzzed by tonight?" "Just at the moment I was counting my own features to see what was missinp." Again Lily hesitated. "I was,' she said at last. "Dear Viggo was frightened. But it also seemed to rne as it he were very much surprised." "I , was surprised too. I am always surprised when people throw knives at me." Lily laughed unfeelingly. "If as I assume we must, there's a bloodthirsty criminal loose among us, and you, as I suppose we must also assume, though with more difficulty, are a greal detective, then what more sensible than to try and pick you off? "You have a point," I said. "Rarely, Deane, have I met a an as badly in need of a bright _ rl as you are. Are you immensely rich?" . "Penniless." *A pity. We can never marry. : A WORD on the arrangement the Vittoria's cabins. Up hrough the mid-section of the hip rose a solid central struc- ure. Sand's suite was forward. At either side of the mid- ilructure ran two narrow cor- idors, thickly carpeted, and ^quipped with brass handrails. ~>n to those two corridors gave he 10 doors of the guest cabins. vc to a side.' Lynch was fully dressed. At y entrance he flapped his arms, t violently shook his ,hfcad,,he Contorted hit feature*, he tapped lean forefinger viforousljr gainst hlf lips. I got it, I was to weifh my •ords. ( : "Lynch," I Mid lolemnly, "a I criminal attempt has been made on the life of Mr. Sand. I have —er—made a preliminary search of the ship but I need your help. 1 * I, didn't think it sounded good. A bit on the stiff side. But Lynch seemed satisfied. "Quite." he said. "We'll make a stan at once." This time, for variety's sake, we chose the top boatdeck. "What," I demanded in a hoarse whisper, "was the point of all that? D'you think Sand has your cabin wired?" "I'm sure of it. A small microphone concealed in the base of the table lamp. I've checked. All the cabins are. A permanent installation. In a business way, most useful, I imagine, to our host. The Vittoria. as you know, carries amazing equipment." "Look, Bertram. You heaved that knife at us, didn't you?" ."Lost it, too," Lynch grumbled. "Went right overboard, fortunately, I carry a spare. A perfectly balanced knife's not easily come by." "You could have buried the thing in either Sand's head or mine, you idiot!" "Nonsense. I never miss. Or very rarely." "What was the big idca?- "This ship," said Lynch briskly, "does 14 knots. We'll be in the West Indies in about five days. And we still know substantially nothing. There's no time to lose. That answer your question?" • • t I THOUGHT this over. "So," [ said with heavy sarcasm, "after due reflection, after all of five minutes of reflection, you decided that the character aboard who was the most 'susceptible,' he most easily scared into telling all, was that notorious bundle ot neuroses Viggo Sand?" "Men of his type frequently are not afraid of taking risks if. hose risks seem to them to have a purpose. They are, however, afraid of assassination. Abnormally so. Witness the dictators." I nodded slowly. Wlgfo did have the shake*. I admit I WM urprised. But he did not throw imself in my irmi and pour out his sc:rnts."
