"Were you a prisoner of the Nazis, Mr- Zimmer?" "No." Zimmer'j voice was quiet, but there was effort behind XVIII gUDDENLY Zimmer smiled once more—a disarmingly candid smile. In other words: .s Perdita Lawrenc. .icurotic and innocent? . Or K she normal ant) guilly?" «T The door had opened abruptly with a crisp sihilance of taffeta "I'm so sorry!" Zimmer had risen too. "Greta do you remember my telling yoii about Dr. Willing? My sister, Mrs Mann." "How do you do?' Her voice wnall, bright, . wrinkled, mobile, empty eyes that with were , were ihrewd rather than intelligent. She was i woman who would make her way in a woman's world. GreU Mann was the sort of woman who thinks it is sertucttve- lr t*minine to chatter. "I've been ihoppiag »n day. Such crowds! But [ do so lov'e the New York shops. Dr. Willing. You have no idea how delighted i was when Max decided to settle here after (he war and asked me to play hostess for him. I hadn't seen Max for ntarlj 15 years hut he hart changed so liltle iha! we lookup just where we left oft." "Where did you live before, Mrs. Mann?" queried Basil. "In Boston. Ever since my husband died. He was a Bostonian. But I never fell at home there. Heaven knows Max and 1 hoth deserve a little gnicly. We've bolh lived through such bad times.

"I had been practicing in England 20 years. I was more English than German, but I was siill a German ritizeti and therefore an alien automatically interned when war broke out. After investigation, I was declared harmless and released about 18 months later. When the American Army occupied Germany, they employed me as a civilian. Hubert Canning was over there, reorganizing the German building industry, and he made it possible for me to com* to this country." Some memory plowed deep lines in Zimmcr's face. -I saw Buchenwald and of the oilier camps. In one He's been 'And I hardly remember what Germany was likcl" chattered Grot,!. "I married an American and came to this country when 1 •as 18 and now—I'm over 50." "The Germany of yoiK girlhood was diftcrcnL* Zimmcr turned to Basil. "I'm sure you know why I'm letting Greta bore you with all this?" "You'd ralher I heard it from someone who knows you?" "Nalurally. Someone else might distort it. 'Dr. Zimmer talks like an Englishman but he was a German. Probably was a Nazi |ik« all the rest of them,'" "You tor?ct I have access to official records," said Basil, PHARLOTTK DEAN graced the tea lable with admirable apiomh.

Basil felt as if he were forcing his way through a maze of silky, clinging cobwebs. "Let me put my cards on the lable," said Basil.

"I believe that someone poisoned her while sh« was al Dr. '/.immer'j houst—the same place where Daggan was poisoned." "Then why did it take her s« much longer to die?" 'Perhaps it was some peculiarity of her constitution or Duggan's. Perhaps she had developed a certain tolerance for codeine, which she was taking regularly. Or perhaps someone kn;w she would take codeine later that night and adjusted the first dose accordingly to delay her death until sh« returned home." Charlotte's face was ashen. "Then—the pill 1 gave her so innocently. . . ." "Duggan got a heavier dose than the poisoner intended. The poi- soner had no way ot knowing that Dliggan would leave Dr. Zimmer'i house before dinner and I cannot believe the poisoner intended either one of them to die at the dinner. Suppose Duggan had died in hii sleep as Miss Shaw did: would anyone ever have suspected murder m «(ther case? Probably not" 'J'HET were jilting In the littlt stxtdy that overlooked the garden.

"How did you know?" •I was sure Brinsley Shaw wouldn't keep a large, old-fashioned house in town." "You're right. He has asked me to sort and catalogue everything else so it can be sold."
