"A murder has been committed. I must insist that until I have countermanded these instructions, no person aboard tiiis ship shall at any time permit himself to be alone in the company of anyone You follow? Captain Carey, you will arrange your schedules of duty so that never less than three men are together at all times. Those of Mr. Sand's guests who wish to go to their cabins—and this includes Mr. Sand himself—must lock their doors and not open them to anyone—I repeat, anyone—until they have called Mr. Deane or myself by telephone. Mr. Meer is ill. While all of you remain where you are. I shall go to his room and lock him in." No one moved and no one spoke until he came back. Dr. Lund completed his examination quickly. He told us little that we did not already know about how Braun met his death. "A question, Doctor," Lynch said. "After having received the injuries which you dressed last night would Meer have been capable of further marked exertion?" Lund thought for a moment. "I should say if Hcrr Meer had made that additional physical exertion, perhaps coupled with emotional excitement, thai it would precisely explain the condition of shock and extreme exhaustion which you saw this morning." "And ho is now better?" "He will soon, I should say, have recovered completely." "Another question. The stab Wound Braun received during I the How seriou: voyage over. [was it?" Lund considered for a moment. "I have no doubt it was uncomfortable. But at no time was it serious. I felt that Braun made far too much of it. I believe he was a physical coward." Lynch nodded. "Would it have been difficult or painful for him to have climbed down a rope from the ship's side and make his way up the hill unaided?" "Not in the least." We walked behind him like a couple of jailers to his room. We heard the key turn in the lock. We returned to the cabin in which Braun lay. In an inside pocket he found a shabby leather billcase which still had the look of having once been of the best and most expensive quality. Fixed to one corner were two initials, in gold, in Gothic script They were "M.B." Braun's papers noted his birth in Bavaria 55 years .before, they gave his profession as "office worker." The only thing which was in any way exceptional about them was that there were two complete sets in separate compartments of the wallet. One was for the Western Z.one of Germany, the other for the Eastern, Soviet Zone. * * • • WE then turned to what a lawyer would have called Braun's "effects." Under the bed and on top of the wardrobe were stowed three suitcases. One was leather, so old that it left a reddish stain on the carpel when we moved it. The other two were of i cheap black cardboard composition. Since Braun had unpacked and distributed his entirely undistinguished possessions in the cabin's closet and bureau drawers, all three wert empty. But one—the i smaller of the two carriboard jobs —had a false bottom. Lynch spotted it at once. A cross - eyed customs' inspector with a month's experience could have done as much. The inside depth of the suitcase was an incb and a half less than the outride measurement. That was that. Lynch had it up in no time with his fingernails. Underneath was a brief case. One of those thin, floppy, worn brief cases which every second German took to carrying after World War II as an adjunct to whatever black market operation in which he might be engaged. But the moment one picked il up, its ordinariness ended. Inside that simple but effective disguise had been constructed a thin stee! box. ft measured about 12 by 16 inches and was not much more than an inch thick. The steel of which it was made was polished and obviously of the hardest temper. No mere can opener was going )o do for this. H was locked with a .tiny but most effective looking cylindrical lock. Lynch hunted for the key. WHEN at last he found it, the usually reserved and easily shockable Lynch swore like a London fish peddler caught fishless on Good Friday. The key was on a rawhide leather cord around the dead man's neck. It was, of course, the first place we should have looked. It was only our squeamish distaste which had marie us put off that obvious thought so long. The steel box in the brief case opened readily. Inside it was a single document. It was typed in luxuriant and wordy German. Each page bore inked initials At the bottom of the last sheet was an array of signatures. The largest, written with a scrawling flourish, made me whistle low and long. Lynch was smiling like a cnt, A cat before, not after, dining. "A will," he said. "A most important will. I will be frank with you, Bobby. This is even mort than I had hoped to find."
