I know 'hey were discouraged. "You may have observed," Lynch went on, "that forward ol the lounge, opening out of the wme stairwell, is a smaller room which Sand uses as an office, ["he door is never locked." • "That surprises me." "It does not surprise me. Viggo Sand's operations are of so gran- iiose and secret a character, so frequently, I suspect, illegal, that 1 would expect him to be allergic !o documents of any sort. He is rcrtainly not the kind of mnn to Irust important papers to the Iceble securit. of a locked door. In that room, however, is a safe, lairly cleverly concealed. But I save located it." Lynch beamed. 'I suggest, Bobby, that you and 1 devote the remainder of our evening to trying to break into It." I had heard him out. Now it was my turn. "Bertram, there are occasions R'lien I think you're completely ofi" your rocker. This is one of thorn. This is a yacht. It is full &f people, of congenitally alert >nd hostile people. U Sand caught you trying to bust into his safe I wouldn't put it past hir.i to have you killed. Accidentally dropped overboard or something." Lynch stopped me with *R ^ patient gesture. "I must remind you. Rc.wrt. ol somclhln:: which FOU mm to hav« torgotUO. T mission of Sand's, whatever it may be. is of sufficient importance to have come to the attention of my government. Washington has been informed and is equally concerned. I am under orders to take risks." "Why," I inquired feebly, "do you need me?" Lynch smiled. "Every safecracker, Bobby, needs a lookout." He produced from his hip pocket * v e 11-worn looking leather pad, flat on one side and rounded on the other, tightly filled with small buckshot, and attached to a leather loop about six inches long. "Your luggage," I remarked bitterly, "must have been of unusual interest to the U.S. Customs." "In London," Lynch explained matter-of-faclly. "this is called „ 'sap.' A most effective, and generally a harmless, weapon. You know how to use it?" "My education has been neglected." 'Link the loop over your right wrist. Hold the pad lightly between your thumb and forefinger. If Heitzig —or anyone c ]se_er, intrudes, swing your right arm smartly up, then down, with wrist motion, letting go of the pad just a few inches before you make contact. Don't be timid about It On the other hand, don't overdo it" LYNCH went ahead. With a thief's caution and technique, he grasped the polished brass doorknob of Sand's study with both hands, bore down on It and slowly turned. The door opened with only the faintest squeak. We entered »nd Lynch gently closed tt Mtta, letvint m In total darkness. Silently, he tcok me by thr wall in such a position that, Jl anyone should open the door, I would be behind iL Obediently, I held the blackjack ready for instant use. Lynch propped his flash-lamp on the desk so that its beam picked out the plaque and some of the wall around it. Next, moving very quickly, he produced from his .trouser pocket a cold chisel and a small but businesslike hammer with a steel handle about four inches long. He put the bit of the chisel against, the edge of the mahogany board where it joined the wall and gave it one light tap. The board swung open on hinges, set invisibly at its right-hand edge. Behind it was a small recessed wall safe of conventional appearance. So intent was I on what Lynch was doing, and on my concern at the racket he was making, I came very close to failing in my own duty. The door beside me was half open before I became aware of it In the next second, tall man had come into the room. My reflexes functioned, if my mind did not Automatically I raised the sap ,and brought it down hard. There was a soft thud as the sandbag came in contact with a skull; somehow surprisingly, the man fell forward. Lynch was beside me in a second. Dropping to one knee he turned my victim over. It was the watchman, Heitzig. Lynch dusted his knees. "Excellent, Bobbie. Excellent," he whispered. "You have a natural gift We've done all I intended. Go at once to your cabin. Get these clothes off, put them safely away and go to bed. I have no doubt we shall be called in due course." • • • AN interminable lime dragged by. I was afraid to make my cabin or myself conspicuous even by turning on. a light to read.
