Frank Lloyd was puzzled "Jack Duggan died after he left Zimmer's house. He may have been poisoned there. Perdita and her fnlher were among the other guests." ''And Stephen never told me!" "The police don't want the story published in full yc t. Stephen Lawrence was afraid lo confide in a newspaper reporter. But I'm going to risk it because you have a personal inlcresi in this." "\Vhat do you mean?" "Perriila (aintct! when she first heard the news of Duggan's death. Does she know or suspect something she hasn't .old ihe police? I need hardly tell you that's dangerous when there's a poisoner at larse. 11 Lloyd was shocked. "1 had no idea. . . . But Pordila wouldn't protect a poisoner!" The warmth in his voice revived Basil's likmg for him. "People can qel themselves ; situations where Ihcy have no choicl Even nice people. Suppose yoi teli me when you first began to fear that Perdita's anxiety was neurotic or \vorse?" "Joyd sighed. -You win. It he«.in about two months ago." •Anr. how long has Perdila that her father was going " "A year and a half." "In that case, some other blow may have fallen about two months ago. Any idea what It might be?" "Of course not. People don't remember things like that. Wail a minute! J do recall the first time 1 thought something queer was going on." "Tell me." "It was just about two months ago when 1 went into the Lawrences' house with Perdita's father. As we came in, 1 heard a voice upstairs jaying: 'You will nothe one thing out of the ordinary there—a certain number of us never speak of the future. !t would be bad taste for us, don't you agree?' "I had never heard the voice before. It was a lovely, rich contralto with a great variety of inflection. It slopped speaking when Slcphcn Lawrence shut Ihe door and we were still taking off our coals when a woman came to the head ol the stairs whom I had never seen before. Perdita, coming down just behind her, introduced her to me as Mrs. Yorke. And that was the first time ! thought Perdila looked shattered and tremulous, like someone who has suffered a shock." A POLICE car took Inspector Foyle and Basil to a six-story building on Thirty-fourth Street between Lexington and Third. Samson of the Homicide Squad was waiting In the doorway of the rear apartment "Came this morning." Samson held out a thick brown envelope addressee) to Oilman. "Guaranty Trust. April statement, I suppose." Foyle ripped Ihe envelope open and frowned. Basil smiled. "You needn't tell me. I can guess. There is no sum of $400 in the debit column." "Right." Foyle dropped the statement. "That check lo 'J D ' was nm-er cashed. And now' it's disappeared." Biiil knfccd About UM comfortable living room. A bookcase with books on criminology Duggan wasn't literary. A large black cat with golden eyes strolled from benind the sofa and rubbed his back against Samson's leg "Duggan's?" "Yes." Samson looked sheepish. "I gave him some canned milk and liver I found in the refrigerator. I was thinking of taking him home to my little boy." Basil looked at the cat and said, "Duggan was lonely." : 'Hc had a mother and a sister in Nebraska," said Foyle. "Mo close friends in New York." "Anything else?" "We've tested an extract of Due- gan's stomache tissue," the inspector went on. "No quantitative analysis yet, but Lambert, Ihe toxicologist, made a guess that Duggan had at least 10 grains o[ codeine. Is that whaf you wanted to know?" B?sil nodded. "And what persona) items did you find here? We don't know much about the man." ""JWERE'S an odd key here that doesn't fit any of the locks He was an ideal tenant, the janitor says, clean and quiet. And he must have been out of town in March. He left the cat with the janitor and canceled his milk order from March 21 to March 31," "Was he any good as a detective?" "He did an right. He had two assets; he worked alone without any operatives to share a secret. and he looked so commonplace thai no one was likely lo suspect that he was a detective. His forte was discretion and honesty They don't always go together in that racket Bui he was the sort that family lawyers recommend lo limid clients," "The sorl of detective thai (Catherine Shaw might hear about from some friend," mused Basil. "No link with (Catherine Shaw or »nyone else we care about," Foyle exhaled a weary breath. "The reports would have to be verbal—or have you forgolten? Duggan had no assistants and— Miss Shaw was blind." (T* I Television- Tonite, Tomorrow WMCT. Memphis.
