How ore vou going to get the murderer to make another I'd seen that one coming and 1 had a reply, the best 1 could think or. I vc got to cveaic an urgency " i of™h"!Vi ! Vou'llpuUoneout!

Which, I thought, should have been her -ue to go all Swecli feminine, understanding and apologetic. She missed her cue. "That," she said, and the nurry- ing twilight brought me a suggestion of lovely eyes narrowed "is as clumsy a way as I've heard o turning an embarrassing conversation. But we'll leave it the way you want iL Mist-er Orlh." "Okay," 1 said, though I didn'i want to go in at all. And I added gratuitously: "And let's hope we get peace and quiet tonight." We got it. The evening passed normally, even perfunctorily. But although 1 didn't suspect at the lime, it was only an hiatus, a kind of "breather."

It came^down like steel spikes hurled out ot a sullen gray sky. The terrific downpour did stop soon. But then 3 Tiodcralcd rain took over and that lunch was over Cravath went straight back to the library This time he took Eve Wheeler intl Jack Dumonl with him The subject matter o( that proposed conference wasn't hard (o guess But it wns a gathering from which f was excluded. Well, feeling forlorn and unnecessary, I browsed around, nnally I went to the billiard- •oom. I'd liecn there about an hour *hen 1 heard a light step and Eve Wheeler wandered in. "Hi Orth," she said, smiling her sleepy smile. "I heard click- clicks and came to see who was still alive. Nobody else | s anywhere else. This place might as well lie the morgue." I nodded. "Worse. But the last time I saw you. you had companions." t was remembering her going into the library with Cravath and Dumont She gave me a queer look. Thcre lasted When ;eemed to be 3 kind or warm subdued glow in her dark eyes Pretty swell companions they *'ere too. Orth. (f you only knew!" Well, 1 did know, or thought I did. Cravath & Company, as represented by its two senior partners, had just insisted upon making formal restitution, probably aver Eve's protesL But I wasn't supposed to know anything. I popped at an easy billiard, missed, and said, "Well what happened to them?" "Oh. (hey had things to do Marncy's gone to talk to the gardener and Jack said he was po- ing to take a nap." I put my cue in the rack 1 wanted—in fact, 1 needed—to talk to Eve Wheeler, "Liking Windover, Orlh?" she isked presently. "A lot goes on around here" She turned, raking me with JJack eyes, wide open and penetrating now. "That isn't what 1 meant." I leaned against the billiard able and tried to make her lead again. "What did you mean?" "You really want lo know?" "I asked, didn't I?" yiE came over to me. She had a peculiar smooth walk, almost i glide. "Look, Orth," she said "I'm 'ery fond of tlie Cravaths. Both ir (hem. Marney and Sally. I've watched you. And you're just an- -ither one. I think, another «uv md Sally's had hundreds Bui 'ou could be a lot better than an iver-ambiliotis pipsqueak and a ccrciary who's definitely on the make." I blinked, "I—r don't gel you." She shook my hands. "I'm try- ng to tell you something for your wn good. Ames Warburton is cad and it's rotten lo slander he dead. But I didn't like Ames nd I knew him well, lie was full f schemes and plans, (or Ames Varburlon. Sally was too nice for im.
