He was in the village. John drove me to the station in the bis car. Walter was impatiently striding up and down. He scarcely greeted me. "What the devil did you mean yesterday not tx^lli.ig me anything and the morning papers lull o it?" "Get in first," I ordered. On the way back to Kraiklowe I told him all that had happenec as far as I knew—or nearly all 1 told him that Derek Grady l<ai been killed within a stone's thro\ ol our house, and.that the covo ner had fixed the lime of. deatl between 12 and 1 o'clock. But didn't tell him that his wife ha been absent from the dining room for five unaccounted for minute during that hour, or that we ha Only Kathy's own word for it tha she was in her room at the tim of the killing'. ' I.didn't tell him cither that was afraid il was loo \>al for mere coincidence that Derek had turnM up at Kraiktowcr the same day Kalhy came down. "You krtow what this n\eans, Mother. It will be a picnic for the newspapers." He spread a crumpled copy of a morning paper out for me to sec. There' was Derek's picture and his name in the headlines. • w The r.ewspappr account gave Derek's address as that of his .father's home. I. reread the street L an4 number, 410 .Wiie^tland Aye- ue. There was something very iniliar about it, hut I couldn't hink what. "Next thing you know, the pa- ers'll 'Jig tip that old affair be- vcen Kathleen and Derek," Waler groaned. * * * 'ONNIE went all to pieces when 1 slip saw Waller. She cried all vcr his shoulder, and he took her pstairs and neither one of them amc down until dinner. I saw then that Connie had one glamor girl on us. Her diner gown was daring and she had Knotted a gold scarf, a-'glitlcr with cquins. over her shoulders and arms. Waller didn't say anything sc- •ious until we reached the dessert. Then he looked down llic able at me. "Connie's pretty much upsc! <bout this affair. 1 think we ought .„ call on attorney down, just in case . I wouldn't rush things it I were you, Dad," Kuthy broke in. She was speaking to Walter but she looked straight at-Connie. I didn" like the look on her fnce. After a moment I said slowly, Call a lawyer, Waller, and the police will think we arc guilty." A better idea than that was forming in the back of my head. It would be only neighborly if f dropped in to call on Ciint Mattison. A man with a broken.arm living alone is rather, a helpless creature. But Hi ere was more than charily back of my intended call. A writer of detective stories should know something aboul solving a crime. After dinner I retired to my study on the prclcnsQ of reading and then slipped out. To reach the cottage in the woods on the other side, one has lo take the path from the east terrace down lo the lake and,follow-the.shon to the place where the banks oi the ravine flatten into the beach There you can cross tljw creek stepjiiing'isionss, ._ _ „:..._ r STRUCK out surcfootedly. I reached the lake, walked along he shore for a couple of hundred yards, the small gravel ilones hurting my feet through ny thin-soled sandals, crossed the creek on the stepping sfoncs, then look the path under the trees. ; It was pilch dark in the woods, and somewhere close at hand a whippoorwill whistled his sad complaint. ; had only gone a little way along the path when I saw a light ahead of me, shining through the trees. At first I thought it was a light from the Cottage, and then I remembered that I hadn't reached the turn in the path. The lights from the Cottage are not visible until you make the turn. • I went along staring curiously at the He'' 1 ahead and not paying much attention to where I was going and suddenly I tripped over a tree root in llic path. It turned my ankle and I cried out with pain and caught at a low hanging rce branch. I held on to the, ranch and stood on one foot and caned over to feel how badly my inkle wos hurl. Gingerly I tried ny weight upon it, and found that could still walk. When I looked ahead again, I saw that the light vas gone. That gave me a queer Reeling. But before I had lime to think -ibout it I heard something or someone coining down that black ialh toward me. I could hear the pad of running steps and the sound of hard breathing. And vn that split second sheer terror tcok possession of my soul. For I remembered with horrible suddenness that Derek Grady had been murdered only yesterday in (hat ravine back of me, and that his murderer loose. I was was too still on the, paralyzed to screahv or lo run or to breathe. And whilfi I 1 stood there frozen with panic the Tiling was upon^ m'Ok •- '- • - '• •• • •- - - '• • •_ ilQ Be Continued). ;
