"Do you likt working with the district at- fcitorney's office?" "Yes, or I wouldn't do it. Do you like polities'" "I'm not in politics." Canning's face wa» expressionless as his voice. "I've never been aWe to understand why men in their tensei become candidates for office." "Perhaps they like power." "Power?" Canning came as near to smiling as he ever did—a mere parting of the lips with a sour twist at one corner. "It's not they •who have power. It's the men behind the scenes who get them elected." •And you are one of those?" "I'm not admitting anything." The stolid eyes shifted to Basil again. "But that's what I would be—if I.wanted power." •1 was wondering il a man like One* more Canning laughed. 'A strong man doesn't feel r»- morse and an intelligent man doesn't get caught." "Then you believe that * strong, intelligent man who had enough money to buy all the obvious safeguards could kill without being caught?" Canning was surprised. "There are mighty few things, Dr. Willing, thai intelligence plus money cannot do in the modern world." Canning twirled nil glass, then took a sip. "Have you ever thought you might like lo be health commissioner?" you would power." for the sake of Canning laughed harshly. "Murderers differ in detail. They kill for money or lust, fear or revenge. AH sorts of things. But. essentially, they're all relieving tension. All •eeking peace of mind." "How can a man have peace of TClod one* !»•> killed.?" Sri- was startled. Then he remembered tb« doubl* brandies. "That's a dun administrative ob," said Basil lightly. In the ballroom, music died fhcre was an influx of talk ami aughter as dancers sauntered back lo their tables In the bar. Canninf turned incurious eyes on them "Why dont you all come back V) my place and finish the evening there?" Basil was a little surprised to find that "you all" Included Brirw- ley Shaw as well as hlj own party Cypress and rhododendron flank the flat-roofed house that itcod squarely on the crest of • hill Canning unlocked a »lde door, and showed his guests a long, low- ceiled room, gaudy as a Christmi package. There was i billiard table and while the others played and Canning was at the bar. Basi found himself beside Isolda oo a green leather sofa. Sitting beside ner, he had hi: first good look at tier face. Unde. a distorting, almost Egyptian mask of eyeshadow, mascara ft was naive aj i and lip peasan stick, girl's — wide-spaced eyes, shoi nose, full lip* and high cheek bones. "We're drinking too much, Ber and I. It doesn't bother him. Bu it worries me because it's begin Dine to make UL And 1 op. That was the first reason rent to Dr. Zirnmer." She cnugh er breath and paused. "Pleas on't tell Bert I'm a patient immer'K- He thinks Zimmer ist a friend of mine. . I neve meant to tell you but liquor make o\i Indiscreet." "Ha« Zimrner helped you?" • • < ]VOT very much. He says alco hoi supplies al! the energ need »o the food 1 eat is slored up in my body as fat. Bi ;'s hard to live with Bert and no rink." "What wai your cither reason or visiting Dr. Zimmer?" queried Basil. "You said that drinking was only the first reason." A look of fuzzy calculation came nto her eyes. "I don't know what said. What I need is another rink." She rose laboriously and walked with precarious steadiness oward the bar. After a few minutes he crossed ht room to the only door that led the rest of the house, hoping there were no stairs or other booby raps for her unsteady feeL Isolds larl seemed near collapse- He found stairs and descended n darkness.

Some quality In iu stillness disturbed ilasil. He stood looking about him. It was what a modern architect calli the "living-dining area." Inside there were no partitions that reached the celling. There were merely built-in cupboards, or. rather, "storage spaces." No wonder Canning and Isolda were a little tired of each other Perpetual intimacy was forced inexorably upon the inhabitants of the house. All he heard as he stood there was Ihe moan of a hoot owl Just outside. "Room" was not the righl term for this vast space. Every outside wall as a huge plate-glass window.
