Out no XIX "Il/TANNERING went on: "Last •"•*• night you were chased by a dog in the grounds, weren't you? That's why you ran in [ront of my car." She cried: "How did you know?" And tears glistened. "I shot and wounded the dog." . She began to rise to her feet, still supporting herself on the arms i of her chair. "John, you—you aren't lying to . me? You aren't pretending? Vou aren't trying to cheer me up?" Her voice was pitched low, and t he could see the fear which drove 'the dread into the open. "It's alJ quite true. There's another thing. Dr. Halstcdfis a fake. I don't think he's a colleague of "Dr. Chatterton's. 1 think he wants •$~to get you away from here—away vr'from me—so thai you can't help to find out the truth. 1 don't intend to let you go." • She didn't speak. "And I've got to have your help," said Mannering. "Halstcd ••and his friends want you away • from here. If you won't go quietly, they might try to kidnap you. That's the risk. I want to avoid ,lt by sending you somewhere tale .vend comfortable. To friends. If ; you like—anywhere thai isn't too near here. And while you're away, 1 WMU fou to writ* down (li tb» things you think you've seen, all your reasons for believing your father was murdered. It might be of vital importance, to you and to others." "Yes, I will." "All right," said Mannering. He took a photograph from his pocket and held it. back towards her so thai she couldn't see it at first. "He had a lot of visitors, didn't he?" "Yes. of course." "Did you ever see this man here?" asked Mannering, and he showed her a photograph of VVU- frid Fenner. THHE sudden change in her expression. the way she leapt up' and gripped his arm astonished' him. "That's Fenner!" "Yes, Wilfrid Fenner," Mannering murmured slowly. "He wanted Father tp sell him some books — offered fantastic prices for some of them. We couldn't get rid of him, be was so insistent. 1 disliked him—Father did, too. And he stole some of the books—or rather. Wilberforce did, and sold them to Fenner. When Father discovered that, he dismissed Wilbertorce. He'd have told the police.- but Wilberforce had been with us so long. Fenner didn't come again after that." "Fenner's still interested In the library." Mannering put the photograph in his pocket. "Gloria, think hard. You went downstairs to the library and saw the dead man, with his throat cut Was he facing the door?" "No, the fireplace. He was all riuddled up. His arm was over his face, and that gash in his throat, it was awful. He was lying on the rug—" 'What nig?" demanded Mannering. 'The big Persian nig In front of the desk." said Gloria. "Surely you Know it." . M«rjii«rU>« Mill: "What a blind I fool I can be! Yes, I remember, but it's been taken away. Now, steady, Gloria. It's only circumstantial evidence. The dead man had gray hair, hadn't he?" "Yes—yes." "You didn't recognize him?" "No. I could only see the top of his head and—and his throat." "We're doing nicely. Now! You've got to Leave here betore Halsted comes. We're going to tell him that you've been kidnaped, or that you've run away. Do you know anywhere you'd like to go?" Mannering forced himself not to think too much about the revelation about Fenner. Time for that later. Gloria mattered; he must keep up this flow which poured new life into her. She said slowly, but eagerly: "There's one place, but you may not like* it." "Where is it?" "A cottage, not far away." said Gloria. "It's about 20 miles, 1 suppose. Abel's mother and father, Mr. and Mrs. White, live there. 1 used to go there when we were out riding, as a child, and I've often called, ever since. It's a lovely cottage, and the old couple are dears." r\R. HALSTED stood in the mid- die of Gloria's room, staring blankly at the, empty bed, the signs of hurried departure. He lost his poise completely. His mouth opened and shut. Mannering, by his side, had told him that they had come to look for Gloria immediately after lunch, and had found her gone. The police had been informed. Dr. Halsted looked at him strangely, almost disbelievingly, but didn't voice his doubts. After a few minutes, he recovered sufficiently to advise Mannering that It was essential that Gloria should be found; anything might befall her, she might kill herself, it was a calamity. But there was no spirit in his words, and 20 minutes after he had arrived, he drove recklessly down the drive. He didn't once look back* Mapncrlng asked Wirral for on ordnance map ol the district, and browsed over it.
