Kfmnicr • nlnir br llv'tor XXV QISELA was wake listening for Basil's step. She came downstairs and round him mixing a mild brandy and soda in the library. "I'm glad it's all right," she said. "I was worried." He looked at her over the rim ol his glace, admiring the grace ivith which sho wore Ihe white gown lined with rose. "It's all wrong," he said drcar- Uy. "And I dont know why." She curled up in one corner of the sofa to lislen. "'And no birds sing,'" she said at last "What about a place overrun bj cats?" Basil shook his head. "Remember Duggan's own cat He wouldn't be alarmed if ho found cats had driven birds out of some back yard or alley. Duggan is the obstinate piece that does not fli into the rest of the Jigsaw. It can't bo coincidcr>?r; when two people die and one nearly dies after meeting exactly the same group of people at Dr. Zimmcrs. It cannot be coincidence: that two of the three took codeine reg\i!arly in small doses arid that codeine was used to poison them. The presence of codeine in Kathcrine Shaw's body or Stephen I,aw- rciicc's wouldn't excite suspicion Thats why the murderer chose codeine as the poi.son. Hut Duggan didn't use codeine regularly His murder was a blunder— a murder hastily improvised because o{ tcrne emergency. The other two were carefully planned not to murder »t all. must have been on the very brink of an important discovery and he had to b« killed instantly at any cost." "But if Lawrence were poisoned because Miss Shaw confided in him, why was it possible to delay the attempt on his life so long?" inquired Gisela. "Why didn't he go to the police when Miss Shaw died? And why did he suggest to you tonight that he had tried to kill himself?" nodded slowly. "1 can think of only one reason why Lawrence should suggest he had attempted suicide — fear that his daughter. Perdila, would be accused o( an attempted mercy- killing. I don't believe it was accident that he knocked that bottle ot codeine o(T the bathroom shelf and trampled the pills. I think he was afraid I might find his daugh- ler's fingerprints on the bottle,'or that I might check on the number ot pills in it. His suspicion ol her was so obvious to me that I made her drink some of the coffee she made before I let hW give it to lim." 'Kven if he docs suspect hor, she may still be innocent. And iurely she had no motive for poisoning Katherine Shaw or Uue- gan!" 'Suppose Lawrence confided In Hiss Shaw that he had soma idea Perdita was being lemptcd by the idea of mercy-killing? Isn't it possible that Miss Shaw engaged a private defective to investigale, hoping that or.ce she had proof she could control Perdita by a threat of exposure? Wouldn't Miss Shaw do such s thing to save Lawrence the agony of dying In fear that his daughter might be tried and punished for murder after his ijeath? And if Lawrence suspects all this, wouldn't he keep the secret after Katherine Shaw's death, since he couldn't go to the police without involving his daughter'"' "Ob, dou'U" protested Gisela. "Don't believe the mean things you hear about married life, young man! The only trouble you might have i> with your wife and Icids!"

Oh, no, Basil! She wouldn't. Until Lawrence was poisoned, you yourself thought it was Brinsley whom Miss Hhaw asfced Duggan lo investigale. Can it be that now you are making the whole thing more complicated than it actually is? Isn't it just possible that Stephen Lawrence hinted ha had tried to kill himscH because he really had? And that it had nothing to do with Miss Shaw or Duggan?" jgASIL laughed. "A triple coincidence? It would he easier 10 believe that Lawrence himself murdered Miss Shaw and Duggan and then tried to kill himself for fear of discovery! But I don't believe II. Lawrence simply isn't that kind of man. He can't even tell a lie skillfully because he isn't used lo lying. I could the false note in his voice when he hinted that he had tried to kill himself." •And Perdita? Was there a false note in her voice at any lime?" Ho. I felt she was telling the truth as she saw it," "Perhaps she wasn't telling the whole truth," ventured Gisela. 'You can conceal a great deal by simple omission." "Perhaps." Basil sighed. "But what did she omit?" The first rays of sunlight were streaming through the windows that looked east. They could hear Juniper moving around the dining room across the hall and there was a pleasant fragrance of bacon and coffee. But neither had much np- petite, Gisela turned thoughtful eyes on ler husband. "If only we could earn more about what happened at that dinner last night . . ." 'Perhaps we shall." |( c smiled reassuringly.
