Angelica J*nen, *10ter - In - law of Jim D*Bn'» client, hi dcnd and I lie fact* point to murder at the Colorado moon In In lodfce trhrrr Jim mm* hln bride Nnner are K mtttf a» car«takf!rn In order to d«tectlve work for Mr*. Kit C«rUon. Jtm ban Jo«t found the bodj Is the baaement, lyinn on an clrvfltor imed to brfnic np wood for the upstair* fireplace. * * * XIH "MANGY had on ber blue jeans, her trim boots and fitted jacket. Jim put his arm around her, pulled her up for a kiss. He told her about the body, and went on, "The phone's dead, honey. 1 guess it's up to you to get to a. phone. The one in that gatekeeper's shack might be •working. Or you might have to go clear into Creek Junction. G«t the sheriff. Tell him what's happened. I'll stay here to make certain nothing is disturbed. Nancy Dunn's face was white and drawn. She said, "Our—our client? "Yes. One dead man beside a California swimming pool A dead woman in a wood elevator in Colorado. But both with j crushed skulls. Both found when I Mrs. Kit and her faithful re- jtainer were alone in the house 'You think the focal sheriff is i going to write that oft* as a co) incidence?" "What sre you going to do, (Jim?" "Find out some things," Dunn • said grimly. 1 Jim watched his car climb up the road toward the plateau. He looked beyond Miss Wister's j coupe, looked at the moving : water of the lake. He knew it was only his imagination, but that body of water did not appear so beautiful now. He heard Mrs. Kit screaming as soon as he was inside the kitchen door. No no no no! Not again! DOC He moved quickly through the kitchen, toward the hall and bedroom. He could hear the lower answering whine of Mrs. Gelstrap's voice, beard the relaxation of Kit's hysteria into violent sobbing. He pushed open the bedroom door without knocking. Mrs. Gelstrap held the nearly empty glass of water she had just taken from the younger woman. There was no sign of the black coffee Jim had prescribed. Mrs. Gelstrap soothed, "You rest and sleep now. It'll be all right" Kit Carlson ,saw Jim, broke into accusations. "You didn't help! You didn't keep this from happening. It's happened again!" "What have you given her now?" Jim demanded at tb* cook, "Just another little capsule or so." There was defiance in Sue. Gelstrap's whine. "Poor thing. She has to rest She's been through so much." Already Kit's eyelids were getting heavy Jim demanded, "Listen to me. Don't go to sleep again. What did you hear during the night?" "Hear? I didn't hear anything but the water And the moaning of the wind. Who is doing this to me? That's the question jou should be trying to answer." 'Don't think about it, dearie," Mrs. Gelstrap said. Mrs. Gelstrap put a tiny hand across the younger woman's lips. When she removed the gentle pressure, Mrs. Kit was asleep. Back in the kitchen, Mrs. Gelstrap retrieved her bottle. "Hysterics and hangovers," Jim said. • • • TIM began a hasty yet thorough J search of the whole house. He finished the upstairs with no evidence of Miss Wistcr's presence, walked down and around (or an- offer *urv«y of tbt 'as Nancy drove up in the jeep. "The phone at the gatehouse worked," Nancy said. "I had to break in, Jim. It—well, it w»s strange the way the operator acted. She rang a Toby Argyle, That's where we stopped (or the keys, wasn't it? 1 * "Yes. I guess Toby Argyle runs the town of Cre«k Junction." "Maybe. At any rate 1 told him and he promised to send the sheriff out. He acted funny, Jim. Odd, startled, upset Oh, I don't know how to tell you. Is—is there anything new here? Mist Wister?" "Nothing. No trace." "What can I do?" He rubbed lu> forehead, smiled. "Breakfast, honey." He watched her walk around the bend in the trail before he unlocked the basement door. Even this more careful search showed no signs of an intruder. Outside, Jim began a methodical quartering of the immediate grounds. He found no trace of any struggle. He completed a wide circle, came out again on the turnaround. A pickup truck was just stopping. He had heard no motor sound and checked that fad again. The rigM-hand door at th« truck popped open and Miss Wister stepped out "Am I glad to see you!" Mist WUter iiid. J IM looked past Miss Wister, saw th* tall, angular woman who had got out the truck's other door and walked around. Jim Dunn felt an uneasy stirring in the pit of his stomach. "Who are you?" "Agnes Argyle," she said. Th« lips of her wide mouth thinned out into a pale line. "Heard you needed tbt i her iff," -Yes." -All right," Mr*. Arjyl* Mid. "That's me. Duly elected ihcrifl of this county, Had a phont report of a dead woman here." She looked quickly at Mist Wlsttr. "Hear you found th* body «f Angelica Jones?"
