Dave Sladen, being a secretary, appeared to be needed. He tmiicd along rcluclantly. 1 thought. This left pie wilh three women, two of whom I deemed expendable. Dolly Dumont and Eve Wheeler had a running game of serious Russian Bank going. Sally .and I watched for a few minutes 'and, jingled or no, Mrs. Dumont had a sharp eye for the cards. But presently Sally drew me away. "Like to see over the place," 'he said, and life for me became " autiful. We strolled out into mauve and gold twilight. I took a look at the garage. "Well, now that you know =11 we know, Jim," S.illy s.i; ( 1. ss we turned away, "whal do you think?" "I don't like it." There was no use kidding her. She waited a moment, tlien burst out. "Oh, it's simply incredible. Uncle Marney is She swollcst giiy that ever lived. He's always doing tilings for people, putting himself otit to do them. He shouldn't have an enemy in the woild. 1 ' "He certainty looks like n swell g«y to mo," I said. "But the fact remains, riSmcbnrly rcrms to kc J=ni[)ing at him with-flowcrpols and station wagons," "I just can't unrlf r.^f.ind it " i.ovuly even teeth denied her low- er Hp. "Why, these people are our best friends." "Well, suppose it isn't one of these people? Someone from the outside?" "Who else could sneak in here in broad daylight, past all the men that work on the place and six servants in the house, go upstairs, out on the balcony and throw a jardiniere at him?" I had been silly, I guess. I said, "The only one who looks in the clear is this Warburton fellow. If he just arrived today." "Ames?" She laughed. Under palmier conditions I could imagine that lau<>ri Well, if 1 silvery tinkle, weren't so suspicious of everybody, I'd agree with you. Up to date, Ames has never been known to slap a mosquito." "Look," I said, "I suppose we can rule the servants out? Chauffeur, gardener and so on?" » » • gllE tilted a firm beautifully rounded chin. "1 rule nobody out. Although I don't believe it was the servants. They all adore Uncle Marney." "Speaking of uncles." I said, "you seem lo have a couple of them. Don't you call Mr. Dumont •Uncle Jack'?" "Yes, because I've known him all my life. But he isn't a relation." "Mr. Cravalh IF. of course?" "Deftnilcly. My father's only brother. A bachelor. My parents died when I was litlle. Uncle Marney adopted me." T ai!:^:rcvl Uncle Marncy's laste, bl:t forbore to say so. I was looking down a kind of preen vista to the edge of the cVffs. Two rov,-s of evergreens, spaced clorety together, bordered n path about six feet wide. Here the ground, in contrast to ils formation al Ihc lav.'n just of! the house, sloped down instead of up. At the end of it, some 200 feet away, were while posts, one at ^ facli end of the evergreen rows, j These weic part of a fence built along the cliff-top. Strung between (he posts, one above the other, were three loose-hanging chains. "This," Sally informed me, "is known in the family as the 'Peacock Path'." "So! I see no peacocks." "Well, there were some once. Uncle Marney remembers that his grandfather had a couple. I suppose they wandered around here ami that's how (he path got its name." The grass was flipped short, and smooth, as a golf green. Beyond the protective chains there was still a good 10 feet of solid ground. But after that, nothing. Sally pointed. "Any time it all gels too much for you, just stagger over that. It's a long drop onto solid rock." "Wot (onight, (hanks," I said. "Look, Sally, has your uncle thought of notifying the police about all this?" Her gray-gold eyes gave me a troubled look. "Suppose we did call the police? The chances are that anyone they sent would look and act just like a bodyguard. And whoevcr's doing this woulu spot him in a second and simply suspend operations." VTell, that made certain sense. We turned away from the fence, because il was nta.-'y dark now. and started back along the Peacock Path. And met, to my chagrin. Eve Wheeler. "I've been looking for you," she said. "Dolly walked out on me." * * » ^/E went into the hnure and played canasta until the securities conference broke up. Thai happened around 11:30. There follower! a drink and general conversation which look another hour. Then somebody yawned and the parly ended. Upstairs I got into a dressing- gown and lay down on the bed. Possible motivation? Backgrounds of these people?- His own history, if I could gel that without becoming too personal? These and a lot more. If cnly ... I had a sensation of every drop of my blood freezing suddenly, it was the most dreadful sound, human or inhuman, that I have ever heard.
