Jack >umont, in slacks and nothing al all above the, was serving as we approached. His tanned well-made body glistened with wrspiration. Facing him across he net was a figure professinnal- ooking in visored cap, white shorts and ankle socks. Dumont was pulling no punches with her. He tossed a ball into the and banged it over with a .Jjl and precision to please _if,ho Gon?.ales. She cracked it right back a neatly-placed shot that caught the corner of the court. Dumont, thick strong legs pounding, managed to get his racket on iL But the lady nnrdcreil the return. Dumont, far >ut of position, never had a -hance. Marney Cravath grinned. 'Sweet player, isn't she?" She was, indeed, a sweet player. Vnd it took me a minute or two to ! t ct accustomed to the fact that ie was thfi languorous Eve Miccler. "This surprises me," I saiil. Cravath nodded. "Eve's a sur., woman. She's very cap- ibie at quite a number of things. You wouldn't think so, though. rom the way she drapes herself irounov Cravath waver] a hand, indicat- "I told everybody to go ahead as usual, In tprle of what happened last night Moping around and brooding isn't going to do poor Ames" any good." "Whew!" Dumont puffed, coming over to the sidelines. "r m not as young as I was." Cravath jammed a big fist gently into his ribs. "No. And you never were the player she is." Eve strolled up, a sweater thrown casually about her shoulders now. "Hello, you two." Then to Dumont: "Thanks for a nice game, Jack." F,ve thrust her arm through Dumont's and we went up to the house, Cravath and I trailing behind them. My eyes, always where they shouldn't be,. I suppose made me very conscious of Eve's legs They wore long slender legs the muscles seeming to now like liquid beneath astonishingly youthful skin. Eve wasn't young by any means. But you'd never have known it from looking at her legs The one person in the house who'd seemed physically incapable of wreaking havoc on the Peacock Path palpably wasn't J^AHLY in the afternoon, I enticed Sally into my rented convertible. I drove it out through the swank gate-job pleasurably aware of her alluring slimness in the rent beside me. But aware loo, somewhat less pleasurably,'that I might have no business to be driving anywhere. Slill, this was broad daylight And Marston Cravath was very much a man and one alerted, now, to danger at Win- dovor. "I suppose," I said, turning east toward the Snund, "that I couldn't have wangled this unless it really were—ah, urgent business?" "Oh.'l don't knew," said Sally. 'You pa|B as a friend of mine. Something 1 latched onto in Bermuda." We reached what seemed to be a narrow neck of land julling inlo the Sound. Oood-^ircd hcuscs 1 spaced at comfortable intervaii, | and with well-manicured lawns lined both sides of the road. "This is Lookaway Point," Sally contributed. And added irrelevantly, "How's your head?" "Still there, spit* of you." I told her. "In E were coming to a dead end. I saw the round white tower of a little lighthouse at the tip of the PomL Just before il the road fanned out into R kind of semicircle. There was ample room to park. "Now," I said, "this urgent business. "What do you want to know from me. Jim?" She spoke as one cutting through preliminaries "Routine stuff," I said. "What I ro gelling at is: anylhing .you can give me about the backgrounds ot your guesls," "Who do you want first?" "It doesn't mailer. Make il Eve Wheeler." The sudden liny frown that flitted to her forehead and flitted away as swiftly was unmistakable. "Eve," Sally said patiently, "is Adrian S. Wheeler's widow." Well, I did know of Adrian <z Wheeler. He'd been a Tycoon' to confound tycoons. Oil chiefly, hut with fingers in many another profitable pie. "To hear Uncle Marney and Uncle Jack tell it, she was the slinkiest promtrolter of the golden twenties. According to my uncles. she commuied regularly to s!l the universities cast of the Mississippi In demand she was." I'm not surprised," I said. It's a hearsay, of course" Sally's eyes clouded, "but Eve had a very glamorous lime when she was quite young. Then things got rugged for awhile." "Go ahead." "She's been married three tirees," Sally lold me. "Firsl a long time ago, to some boy from Priiicclon. I don't remember his nnme and [ don't know the exact details. Rumor is that, nfler they'd been married aboul a year, he and fcve and a whole party went up to some ski lodge in (he Adiron- dncks. Some time dm in;; that week-end this guy shot himself, dead."
