She could swear that there was no one in the space where the trees stop and the cliffs began besides Ames Warburton— no one within at least 20 feet of him.

He shot me an apprehensive look from under tufted iron-grey brows. "Murder, then?"' "That's what she seems to think." He got up, paced the floor. "Look. Orlh! I was fond of that hoy.

"Could bi that we've got to deal with just on. ah, operator." He stopped pacing, took Scotch and glasses from a cellarctte There wasn't any ice but the water was good and cold. J SIPPED whisky and said: -I've got a theory about why Warburton was out there. He was looking for his watch." Cravath si a red al me. "So! Practically on Ihc edge of the cliffs? No, that's no goo d. He couldn't have thought he'd dropped it in a place like that." "Well," I said, not too confidently, it's jusl a guess. But it could have been carried there by lhat little dachshund of yours. Isn't he a bit of a kleptomaniac?" "Yes," Cravath said slowly. "I hadn't thought o( Fritzie. And the little devil does steal things all the lime. But look here! You're suggesting that Ames gels up in the dead of night and starts roaming -ironnd the grounds, looking for his watch. To my mind, lhal's pretty farfetched." 'It's farfetched, all right," I agreed. "But it's the only explanation I can Oder as to why he might have bi>en out there at all." Cravath shook his head unbelievingly. "Well," I continued stubbornly, "the fact remains that Warburton :iidn't have his watch before dinner. But il turned up when he's ound on those rocks. Okay. V.'ar- jurlon was seen to climb Ihe fence and then slonp down. He'd sc«n he watch and was getting it. Then ic cither stumbled or slipped He wrestled visibly with this dea. It was plain Lhat he didn'! want to accept it. "Pushed or struck, Ring thinks. Well, what vilh. The police went over the [round thoroughly and found noth- ing out of the way. There wasn't anything to find. Except that the grass was sculled up quite a lot. Ames' feet when he tried lo save himself, I suppose." I shrugged. "I don't know. But listen, Mr. Cravath! Presumably only you and I and Mrs. Ring know thai she saw anything at all tonight. The murderer, If there it one, doesn't. So ..." He got it at once, and interrupted. "So if he were to flnd out. Ring might possibly be in danecr Well, I don't think he will Ring's very close-mouthed. However, I'll put a flea in her ear." "Yes," I said. "And keep your own door locked tonight," • • • J WAS glad that he called the discussion off. Vaguely, as we talked, the desire to look over the end of the Peacock Path for myself had come, and grown. Now It was translating itself in terms of a irmjt. And I knew, too, lhat r h'ad to do it immediately. To wait for daylight would be unwise. In Uie first place, if the police had missed anything, the presumed murderer would have more time to find and remove it. Secondly, as a guest here and supposedly a fairly fcather-hendc-d one, I wouldn't want it thought that 1 evinced inordinate interest in this affair. Of )ust what I hoped to gain I hadn't the foggiest idea. But while I've got plenty of respect for the police I thought their examination could stand a check-up in this case. Marslon Cravath, I'd understood from Sally, was highly allergic lo publicity. At the time when he talked with the authorilics. Mrs Ring had nol told her full story. It seemed to me that, possessed only of Its bare outline and probably believing Ring either mislak- en or hysterical. Cravath would almost certainly have aided and abetted »ny official tendency lo regard Ames Warburton's death as 5 mere mishap. In short, I thought It possible that, quite unwillingly, he might have influenced the thinking of Ihc police. Which wasn't good enough for me—If there were a murderer loose at Windover.
