"The moment Dr. Zun- *»r knew Katherina Shaw sur- ptcted hi™ and had employed Det«ctlve Jack Duggan to investigate him, k became necessary to kill both before either could con- flda io me—a member of the Dis- frict Attorney's ilalT. "Zimmer had long realized that •n emergency like this might arise when an unpremeditated killing would be necessary because someone was suddenly suspicious. So h« had Otto wntch for a pre-arranged signal which meant: 'Offer • poisoned glass to the person I am talking to now and forget other plans.' * "But there was no act or gesture Zimmer performed each time he was talking to one of his victims," proteslcd Gisela. "He never did the same thing twice!" Again Basil smiled. "It's a very simple signal that I should have spotted sooner—an old conjuror's trick often used in fake miiid- reading acts. And it's based on Ihe mind's failure to think abstractly in everyday life. Zimmer picked I up Miss Shaw's walking stick by "' Its ivory handle, then shifted his grip to , ebony shaft, as he presented the handle to Miss Shaw and spoke to her. Zimmer straightened his gardenia and adjusted his lapel when he spoke to Diiggan. Zimmer laid his hand on the white marble mantelpiece and picked up the poker when he spoke to Stephen Lawrence. Zim- mcr played on the piano, D and D "harp when he spoke to Isolda Canning. "If you abstract the idea of color from all these particulars, j-ou realize that he did the same thing four tKies—he touched something white and then something black while he was talking to a person who diech^ir nearly died afterward. ^> • - • • "'PIIE older I get, the more I amazed 1 am at Ihe way ua- patible and can't, agree on divorce like the Cannings and the Yorkes!

Dr dimmer went s step farther and speculated in murder," Basil added "When I realized that two of the three victims in this case— Katherine Shaw and Stephen Lawrence —both suffered from painful incurable diseases, I thought ot mercy-killing as a possible motive It was the only motive that fitted I'crdila's character. She had said: 'I couldn't give him poison myself.' Was Perdila allowing someone else lo do her mercy-killing for her? And was Miss Shaw poisoned by the same person for a similar reason? "Zimmcr happens to be a German doclor, possibly more sympathetic lo the Nam than he ever admitted and had seen the extermination camps where the various Nazis carried out the ancient eugenic fallacy of slaughtering the unwanted on a mass-production scale. This doctor has had to start all over again in a foreign city and so needs a shoil-cul to fortune. "He decides lo sell extermination at 3 high price to anyone who wanted to get rid of anyone else for whatever reason— the aged rich, whose heirs arc growing impatient, like Kaihcrinc Shaw; husbands and wives who arc iocom- cess lo sic-oping tablets or alcoholics taking drugs lor hangovers. He poisons e.ich victim with (he victim's own drug." "How did he find enough customers without giving his secret away?" asked Gisela. t • • "^L S ' Practicing Psychiatrist he must have had access to the Inmost secrels in the minds of many patients. Secret desire for another person's denlb is a commonplace of psychiatry. But, unlike the true healer, he would not try to cauterize homicidal impulses in his patients. He could deliberately cultivate those impulses and leach the patient lo rationalize Ihem. Then, when the patient's mind -vas ripe for suggestion, Zimmer would explain how murder could be done—at a price. "At this point. I bcuan to wonder if the actual poisoning took place at Zi.nmer's weekly dinners for his patienls and Iheir families. Ffalf the guests had strong motives for Y.'ishing someone else dead. The other half were all potential victims except Charlotte Dean — (he one innocent bystander who was only there because the blind Miss -Sh.-iw needed her attendant. When Charlotte Dean gave her account of the first dinner after Duggan's death, she told us a curious ttjing. Two of the guests started to say something and then broke off confused and stammering in ihe middle of a sentence Rosamund Yorhe nod Hubert C.ln- nlng. Each of those broken sentences Mi.<s Dean reported was a remark about the .future concern- ins a p;rir I had already thought <>' as potential murderer and potential victim. Of course I had no idea then that Isolda anticipated Canning's each of Ihe Cannings employed "/.immcr to kill the other without either suspecting."
