" f LIKE the way you got In to A see Cousin Jess," Sutton said. "Mmm, could you locate a man who, let's say, disappeared 12 years ago?" "You name him and I'M find him." "What does a skip tracer usually get?" ' "Ten bucks," Sam volunteered inadvertently. Johnny gave him 'the elbow again. "Finding a missing person isn't skip tracing. It's detective work." "Same thing, isn't it?" asked Sutlon. "Skip tracing a man who owes x bill is minor-league stuff. But a man who's missing, nh, that takes real detective .work. And you know what the better detective agencies charge." "I haven't the slightest," Sutton said. "I'm willing to pay a fair price, though, to find my cousin, Lester Smithson." "What relation is he to Jess Canmchac'l, senior?" "Nephew, same as I am. Uncle Jess had two sisters, Delia and Carrie. Lester was Delia's son. C: a r r i c Carmlchacl was my mother." "Your aunt and your mother m.j both dead?" "Yes." "Mmm," said Johnny thought- tti..y. "1 catcii on. With Jess the third dead, that leaves you the next of kin." "Except for Lester." "You want me to find Lester. Since you're the heir to the Carmichael grocery stores, I'll naturally have to charge you a larger fee." James Sutton chuckled. ''You are a character, Fletcher. All right, name your price." A hundred dollars a daV "Isn't that a little slifr?" "It might be for the ordinary detective agency," Johnny admitted, "but when you hire Johnny Fletcher, you're hiring the best." "Let's sny $50 n day." "For my A-l work?" "Your best. Fifty dollars a day. And there's got to be a time limit, of course." "Ten days?" "Five. Fifty dollars a day, for five days and a, ah, bonus of $200 when you succeed." "Seven days and a $500 bonus?" "Very well." "And n retainer of, say, $200?" "I'll send you a check tomorrow." Johnny frowned. "Couldn't you pay something now—just to bind the agreement?" "I'm afraid I left my wallet at home." JOHNNY'S frown became a scowl. "I wasn't able to get to the bank today. Sam, how much money have you got on you?" "Why, you know, Johnny, $1.45." 'You, too?" Johnny shook his head. "This is a bit awkward. Not even enough to tip the driver." He turned back to Sutton. "Haven't you got some small change on you?" Sutton drew a $5 bill from his pnrliel,, A few minute;, later Uit> run; smoothly into the service entrance of the Barbizon-Waldorf Hotel. "A nice drive," Johnny said to the chauffeur. "I may want you again, tomorrow." "Very good, sir," replied the chauITeur. "Just ask for Wilbur. Let's see, it's just about three hours. "That'll be $18, sir." "Very reasonable," Johnny said, concealing a little wince. "I made arrangements with the beil captain. Room 821. Here—here's a little something for you." He handed the man the $5 bill he had just obtained from Sutton. The man touched his vi- sored cap. "Thank you, sir." Johnny, Sam and Sutton Walked into the hotel. "I'll leave you now," Sutton said. "But I'll get in touch with you tomorrow." "But better give me your number, so I can call you if I get something important." Sutton suddenly grinned. "Look Fletcher, what's wrong with me phoning you here? You are in Room 821, aren't you?" "Sure," said Johnny. "Room 821 ... at the Forty-Fifth Street Hotel." Sutton exclaimed softly. "Butj you charged the limousine to ..." I Then he chuckled. "All right,, 1 the Forty-Fifth Street_Hotel." "Ngw you might as well give me your address," Johnny said. "I'll flnd it out anyway." "You've got a point there. Believe It or not, I happen to live here." • « • ALTHOUGH it was after 11 o'clock when they entered the Forty-Fifth Street Hotel, Peabody, the manager, was In the lobby. He smiled wolflshly when he spied Johnny and Sam heading for the elevators. "Mr. Fletcher," he called. Johnny turned to the desk. "Harya, Pcabody, a food nlght'l sleep to you.". . "But not to you," retorted Peabody. "I se« no reason for Itt- ting you stay another night In this hostelry.
