Then he said petulantly, "1 ain't in the mood for any more rummy. Pay me what you owe me." I laid a dollar and a dime on the desk. He pocketed it. and then tpok a ring of keys from the top of the desk, unlocked a drawer, and leaned down, grunting. He came up with something in his closed hand. "There she is," be said, and opened his hand, revealing a small gray lead pellet, "That's the slug Doc Jarrett dug out of Alice. All we gotta do is ftnd the rifle that fired It and we got Alice's killer." I looked at the little misshapen lump, a tiny chunk of lead thai carried death, and I thought of another chunk, « trifle larger, that had imbedded itself in the front scat of my car. "Take good care of it. Sheriff," I said. "I will," he said impatiently. "Keep It locked up right here." He dropped the bullet back into the desk drawer. He held the cigar stub delicately between two Angers, puffed slowly, and regarded me silently tor a moment Then he said, "You're tough, but I'm tougher, because I've been around a lot longer and there's not much I ain't seen. : This business about Alice is strictly my problem—but I could use you, il you'd cooperate." "How?" "Tell me the real reason you're interested In Alice and what happened to her." "1 told you. I wanted her permission to do the autopsy on her husband." "You claim you |[ot that, no / that it's let«!• Why mesa around BOW?" ' "I was shot »t, twice. I think H connect! with Allot Oiborn'i death," / ' "What else?" he asked softly. For an instant I found it diffl- ult to meet his narrow gaze, but did, and I said, "1 think maybe t's my fault that Alice Osborn was killed. I feel I owe her omething." He waved the cigar stub impatiently. "So you're just a [night in what the poeLs call hiny armor, is that it? I think our tin suit is rusty. I think you ;ot other reasons." "Maybe." "All right. We'll leave it like hat. If somebody killed Alice, 1 want to catch the varmint as bad as you do. I'll let you work with me—if we can make a deal." "What kind of a deal?" "You just forget Frank Osborn's autopsy." "That's Tuesday," 1 said, "and we're going to do it. Are we pals until then?" "It depends." • • » IT was almost 6 when I entered the Blue Ridge Hotel. There 1 was no mail for me at the desk, and 1 had a lonely dinner At 8:30, when it was dark and the city lights probed the purplish-black sky, I returned to my silent room, put on pajamas and lay on the bed. I picked up a book and triec to read. After Chapter Four, : laid it aside, closed my eyes and presently I slept. • • • A SHRILL jangling awoke me I blinked ,in the brightness and wondered what had happened to the night. My bedside ligh glowed with a feeble yellownes against the sun at the window I brought my wrist watch around in front of my face, focused my eyt*. Six o'clock. I reached to the ringing phone beside the bed almost dropped It, »nd then go it to my ear.'"Hello." My voic was scratchy. '•': ' , "Bennttt?" The voice was thin and thrill tad unfamiliar. I grunted a word, probably Yes." "This is Abner." "Oh, hello, Sherifl." "1 got trouble, son." "Trouble?" I mumbled. "You see, there was a wreck n the highway early this mprn- ng. and the state patrol called' me, seeing as how it happened n the county. Young punk driv- ng without a license smacked nto a semitrailer on a curve. Vobody hurt, but I had to lock he kid up and that's why I went ,0 the jail. My desk was busted pen and the bullet was gone, the lug that killed Alice. Thert goes our evidence against Alice'i killer." I could almost see his crafty yellow-toothed leer, and suddenly I was wide awake. "They jroke into the jail?" "Yep. I didn't have no prisoners, but I locked my desk and he office door. They pried 'em open." "I suppose the whole towm knew you had the bullet?" "The people in this town know more about my business than I do." 'Well, cheer up," I said. "» wasn't any use to you—not without the gun that fired it." When I was dressed and ready :o leave I paused, wondering if : had forgotten anything. Suddenly I knew that I had, and that it had been in the back of my brain for some time, prob«bly since Saturday night, when, the bullet had crashed through my car window. I went to my bag, took out » .38 revolver, checked to m»k« certain that the cylinder w»i full and that the safety was on, «nd placed it muzzle down in the Inside pocket of my coat. Sinot working for the Commission I'd gotten out of the habit of tarry- ins it, but its weight beneath my arm was familiar and comforting. I have never used > shoulder holster.
