That reminder sent his thoughts upstr.irs. Was Miriam getting into bed? Was she taking the doctored drink? He had no concrete thought beyond hoping she'd drop off to slec[> at once. He put on opened botile of rye, a small thermos of water and glasses on a tray and carried it to the coffee table. He returned to the bar and mixed a highball for himself, then went to his cljair. Only then did Bipdle sit down, bring both hands into view, and loosen his topcoat. "1 thought you might like to pour your own drinks, Bindle," Sterling said. "Drinks?

His face was without expression. The top of his head vas relatively narrow, the more so because o! sparsely spread -hair marked by bald spaces above the :emples. The right temple was marked by a welt of scarred tissue. Sterling was studying Bindle through the cigar smoke, conscious that he was being studied in turn by those beady black eyes half covered by deceptively lazy lids. "It's been a nice social visit, Sterling." Bindie spoke at last. "Now let's get to businesm. You know why I'm here." (To Be Contln«e4) Protect Your Loved Ones See E. H.
