She took (Jne of Eve's hands in her own. "Please don't rag this out. Nobociy here is insane enough 1o tliink that you killed Ames Waruurton or anybody else." "I'll finish, Sal. if you don't mind. Eve's voice was low out determined. "Because Golly went back to Johnny. Orth. and Dave Sladcn too. wouldn'l know about that." Her gaze fixed me for a second, then traveled to Sladen "Just to hav-p it all out in the open, Johnny Wyndham was my first husband. He shot himself while we were at a ski-lodge in the Adirondack*. Years ago. I don't know why. I never will know. It was simply a suicide that's all I know." ' So--a little more food for thought! Eve Wheeler had seemed straightforward, forthright And I liked her. nut. thinking it over later in my own room, it was clear that she had pulled at least one punch tonight. In the ?!'.«rroon she'd volunteered a low opinion of Ames Warburlon lo me. She hadn't repeated thai opinion for the benefit of the multitude, so to speak. Ames, to hear her tell il in public, wns just a guy who from time to time had dropped around to see her—enjoy, no doubt, the lavishness and sumpuiousness of her New York apartment. But suppose he had acquired over Mrs. Wheeler tome special hold that made life insupportable to her? The detective profession tended lo fashion a reasonably-alTable, rcTisonably-personahle young man inio a species of crabbed cynic, doubtful of the whole human rac« Cravalh knocked on my door then. Tonight he didn't suggest goinn into his stiirtv. •' :c ' ' Vi said forr-e- iujiv, "1 want Juu , ,a particular to understand that there wasnt a word of Iruth in trial nonsense tonight." "You mean in Ihe accusations naturally?" 1 said. He ground oul the cigaret rather savagely. "Yes. Dolly Diimonl was talking through her hat. She didn't even know Johnny Wyndham." "You did know him?" I asked. "I did. And he was a bounder and a roller. Why Eve ever married 'him, I can't imagine. He wasn't fit lo shine her shoes." J-JE was obviously in a touchy explosive mood so I had lo walk warily. "Bui il's true that he did shool himself?" Cravath made an expansive gesture. "Everything that Eve said tonight is true. Except maybe her idea lhat Johnny Wyndham com- millcd suicide. Personally, I've never believed IhaL He'd taken a gun along on lhat skiing trip. It was jiist the kind of silly thing he would do. I've always believed that he was fooling wilh the gun and it simply went off." "Look here." I said, "you won'l like this, but I have lo be impersonal. Frankly, I want to know whether Eve Wheeler had an alibi in Ihe Wyndham affair?" He eyed me challengingly. "Good Heavens, Orlh. the thing was over with years ago. And Eve was completely exonerated." Wilh that he left me. pksyl was Innocent, he said, and for the nonce I bought that. But we still had a murderer. One far loo cagey to leave lying around anywhere—and 1 did mean "anywhere"—that which, if «ven- tuallj retrieved, might pin murder on him. And ... It came to me, in a kind of inning flash. I i'ruin the murderer's angle, U was tailor-made. Do a neat, thorough and mystifying job. But. if the agency of destruction were ever recovered, let it point to someone else! Someone possibly even more capable of using that agency, provenly adept, and whom the murderer also wished out of the way, Bui, and I kicked myself for not having realized it before, this murderer must have a—an ammunition dump, somewhere. That I had to find. On my own, eh? But that was just what I was on. • • • J?AIN still made a wet gray shambles of Long Island the next day. Despite it, I slipped of! after breakfast, went into Port Listen and called The Ferret from the Madison House. But the girl who watched over his cubbyhole office volunteered that he was out. She expected him Within the hour. I left the number of the phone I was calling from and hung around. I had to hang around bored and itnpalient, for more than an hour, But then the phone within the booth came to life. "That you, Jim?" The Ferrel asked, cautiously. "It is," I said. "You got anything for me, Harrison?" "The three days you gave m« aren't up yet," he said, maddeningly. "I can't help thai," I told him. "I'm being pushed al this end. It you've got anything, givel" A sotl, sibilant brcalh-lntak* came over the wire. "Say. Jim," inquired Harrison, "you clairvoyant or »oin*th!ng?" I gripped the phone and prae- ticallj yammered. "You —you mean I wag right?" "About 80 per cent, so far." (T* »f vDU MALLEI HEAD--SOU DON'T MAKE GRAVY WITH THE FBEWCH FRJEJ?
