It might show how much he knew about cameos. But her finest pieces were in the bedroom nntj Stephanie was in there- She might show him the cabinet in her studio. "It you'd like to see a few minor pfcces, come along -.out to my studio." Vakov eagerly followed her outside to a shed in the rear of the yard. She unlocked a padlock on the heavj redwood door. Yakov stood outside until Hagar turned on the light. It appeared that Hagar Blair was a competent sculptor, but not a genius, he decided, surveying her work. "Enchanting." he said. "You work much in wood, I see." Hagar rglanced suspiciously at the Russian, hut saw in his face only enthusiasm and admiration. Grudgingly, she began to think of him as not a bad fellow, after all. "Here are the cameos," she said, her voire almost cordial. Yakov did not miss her changed tone and smiled. Yakov peered In. "Very mler- estinfcpieces. I see no carnelians-" "T Tike the carnelians best and keep them in the house where I can look at them. That sardonyx, fourth from left on the fifth shelf, is very similar to the famous Tazza Farnese. You've seen It at he Metropolitan Museum, I sup- 30SC?" "Yes. I went there several t ernes a look at it. A wonderful piece, most exqiiisilc!" Ha gar's next words en me out precisely and coldly: "The Tazza i-'arncse is in Naples, and has bnon 'or the last 100 years or so. Even .he most amateurish collector of cameos would know that." Yakov mel her eyes, his fncc oland. "Perhaps 1 have it confused with something else. 1 * "It would be impossible to con- rusc the Tazzn Farnese with anything else!" She locked the cabinet with significant finality "1 don't think there's any poinl in discuss- ng cameos any further. Mr. Yakov." Idly. Yakov had picked up a slender chisel from her workbench, he was testing its razor edge gingerly against his thumb He turned to her, holding up the tool so that light glittered along its edge "Wouldn't you say. Miss Blair. that a weapon similar to this chisel could have killed our* poor friend, Martin Falter?" of Police Monroe Peters. fat hands clasped loosely, looked at Tom O'Neill and his wife Nell, who sat across the desk from him in his office. At the chief's side, nenr a corner of the desk. was Charlie Ueddy.v bright and handsome beginning lawyer, and the chief's pro tern assistant. "Tom. Bob Knox says you and Martin Falter had a big row at his place yesterday afternoon and you saw fit to make a few remarks about what ought to happen to Falter. Pretty violent ideas. Bob tells rne. Tom. looking tired and painfully sober, looked apprehensively at the chief. When he spoke his voice was hoarse. "The thing is, Chief Peters, I had one or two too many yesterday. 1 admit I don't like Falter — lidn'l like Palter—but I'm not Die only one. It everybody who didn't ike falter is suspected of murdering him. you'll have a whole irrny of possible murderers. We ad an argument, sure, I'm not denying Hint, but Falter had a-gu- nonte with lots of people." 'Sure." the chief was saying, 'we know Falter wasn't popular. Nothing personal in this, Tom. What we're trying to establish now is why you went to Martin's this morning after fighting with him yesterday." Tom's hand shook as he lighted cigaret: "I came ri^hl down ncre and reported the body, didn't 1?" Peters sighed heavily, Charlie Redtly looked severe. "Tom," said lleddy in his pleasantly modulated Voice, "how did you happen to find Iho body? Why did you go to Filter's this morning?" O'Neill stared at i grease spot on the knee of his trousers: "1— I went up to apologize. I was ashamed of the things I'd said lo him yesterday." Nell threw back her brilliant blonde bend and gave a snort ot derisive laughter. Tom jerked' around, his factpurple: "Shut up, you tramp!" Chief Peters pounded on his desk: "Cut out that kind of talk, O'Neill] I've tried to be .pleasant about this., but unless I get a little co-operation, we'll change tactics!" NeiJ put on a serious face. Torn once again appeared abject. The telephone gave a short, strident jangle. Reddy picked up the instrument: "Chief Peters' office, Rcd<ly speaking. Yes. What tune? Was she alone? Just a minute." He covered the mouthpiece. "Chief, it's Allen down at the cab company, he says he brought Stephanie Smith—the chick who work. 1 ! at Hagar Blair's shop—up Fuller's last night about 8 o'clock." Tom's cigarel was burning close lo his fingers but he seemed not to notice: "Sec? Whnt did 1 tell you? Lots of other people in this besides me." He wagged his white head earnestly.
