The lounge was sweltering hot. It couldn't t* just nerves. Suddenly, I knew. The air conditioning had been shut off. "In the reconstructions I have attempted," Lynch began briskly, "I have gone upon the assumption that the crimes which have been committed have had gain af their lolc motive. When K> large a sum M $5,000,000 is involved, that seems natural. Let us see if there is some other pattern. "Aboard tti« Vittoria > host of nationalities M represented. Yet every victim, the seaman, 1 the night watchman, Braun, has been a German. Perhaps that i< i coincidence. •It can be argued, I think, that the motive at these crimes may have been the reverse of greed. From the commission of the first, Mr. Sand was very seriously disturbed. He is a man of immense wealth. It was entirely in the realm at possibility—and the murderer must have known it— .that Mr. Sand might have be' come so badly frightened that he would have dropped the whole affair. The immurement of Braun's body in the lower chamber might well have made it impossible forever for the murderer to take possession of them. Those chests are extremely heavy. Far too heavy a load for one man. As 3 result of Brnun's murder, any accomplices who were later recruited to help transport the •gold from its hiding place would lot necessity have to be con- I fronted by the very present evi- idcnce of a capital crime. Alio, iin effect, by the confession o* its perpetrator." Lynch, In his pacing about th* room, was hesitating slightly before each occupied chair. From that may we argue ] then, that the motive of these crimes was not gain, but wholly emotional. An attempt to defeat a vicious political purpose which .'ould have been served dangerously well had those chests of gold reached their destination." The air conditioning was certainly deader than a doornail Lynch, in his jerky perambulation, had now stopped in front of Dr. Lund. 'Dr. Lund," said Lynch conversationally, "for the sake of our discussion, will you allow me to fit you to that role?" "Of course." "Thank you. ! learned from London tonight that you were one* the chief, I am informed, of a large hospital?" "Of course. Mr. Lynch." Lynch nodded. "A comfortable enough income, no doubt. But producing nothing like the rewards a surgeon of your skill could have earned in private practice." DR. LUND smilingly shook his head. "But why do you say my 'skill'?" "At the time of Hcilzig's injury when I asked you, doctor, if you would trepan, you said that you would do so if you found it necessary. No ordinary surgeon would dream of attempting it. Especially aboard the ship without skilled assistance. I believe you actually accomplished it." Lund was fast losing his polite smile, "Your questions, Mr. Lynch, rather overwhelm me. May I say that no doubt many others suffered just as much as I did. Mr, Lynch, will you now play this distressing game with someone else?" Suddenly, with the snake-like speed of which only Lynch was capable, his hand shot out and seized Lund's half-closed fist. He spoke so softly I could scarcely hear him. "I am afraid, doctor, no one else would do. May 1 have your handkerchief?" He tried to pull his captured hand away. He might as well have tried to extricate it from iron vise. Lynch puller! it slowly toward him. Lund's sleeve slid up. Lily Wnydam cried out and pointed. "Look! Look!" Inside Lund's forearm were tattooed five blue numbers. The brand mark of the victims of the Nazi concentration camps. Lynch again moved so rapidly his mpvemenLs seemed to blur. There was a double click and Dr. Lund was securely manacled. Lynch forced open the finders hich held the handkerchief. "Thank you, doctor," he said with heavy irony. "This is fortuitous, of course. But it was something I needed badly." • • • HALF turning so the rest of the room could see, he held in the palm of one hand the handkerchief he had taken from Lund. It was filthy, wadded, stained and heavy with fine, pale sand. With his other hand Lynch reached into a pocket of his coat and produced its twin, his own handkerchief which he had used to wipe clear the cracks which had revealed the concrete trap in the fourth chamber. All thnt distinguishes these two. doctor," said Lynch clam- ly, "is that I used mine to wipe the crack in the trapdoor clear. You used vours to cover it." He wciRhed the wadded rag in his left hand. "This is the kind of evidence that juries like." Lund was leaning back in his chair with his mnnarled, white surgeon's hands lying supine in his lap. "One question, Mr. Lynch," he said quietly, "Who was Manfred Braun?"
