So. of city limits, Hi way 61 XXXI \iTARNEY CRAVATH had fo be stopped or he'd tear everything clown. I grabbed his arm. "That's the last thing to do." I said. "You could choke him all night and you wouldn't get a thing out of him. Ha knows that as things stnrid now, nobody can get an iota of proof he committed the murder. And we'd mnkc a mistake to even give him a glimmer that we suspect him." He hesitated—impressed, I think, in spile of himself. "Hut, 3 murderer! Under my roof!" "All right," I said. "But put him on his guard and he'll be scot-free under other roofs for the rest of his natural life. And none of them will be the roof of s Jatl- house, either." He saw the reason in this. He (Pv'nt back to his chair, Rat heavily, "tt'cll. what do v.-e do? Let him go on murdering people at his own convenience?" All at once he started up again. "Then it was -who tried to ft didn't seem necessary to an- Dave Sladcn kill me?" swer that. "But why?" Cravath's face was a puzzled mask and his voice slighlly plaintive. "I Rave him the best job he's ever had." I nodded. "Yes. But (here's something else that he never could get from you. Sally." "You mean he wauls to marry !ier?" I was in it now, to the point of no return. "Kladen is wild about Sally. But he's sure you wouldn't Rive your consent in a million years." "You're righl there. I wouldn't." I spread my hands. I'd gotten this distasteful job over. Eiut I dicln't like myself any better for having done so. "Well, there it is Oh, sure. Sally's free, white and 21. Theoretically-, she can do as she pleases. But even I, practically a stranger here, know that Sally would never marry without your approval. And if I know it, Sladeri knows it. You're the stumbling-block that's keeping htm from completing his plans. So he's tried, twice, to ..." I let my voice trail. • • » pRAVATH drew a sod lingering breath. "I—see. To remove me, eh?" His fists, raised, were like great poised hammers—"Sally means everything to me. And she'd marry that fellow only over my dead body. Because he isn't good enough for her." "That," I muttered, "i« what we're going to prove." One of the poised lists came down on his knee. "Dave Sladen's been a smart, efficient secretary. He does his work well, earns his salary, and that's why 1 keep him. But 1 don't like him as a man. He's warped and biased and —ah, twisted. I don't know what's the matter with him. But if I had my way we'd have Sally In here right now and Sladen too and get to the bottom of this business." "Do that," I said, "and Dave Sladen gets away with one of the neatest murders on record. Only it isn't actually on the record as a murder. He won't get Sally, but he'll have S50.000 and his freedom to go after some other rich girl." He leaned back In his chair. "All right, all right." he said;\vear- ily. What do you want me to do?" This was it, the vital moment. "I want you," 1 said, "to do Just as I say. And it may mean risking your life." There was a momentary silence. Then: "Very well, Orth." Marston Cravath shot me a q»e«r look from under thick bushy brows. "I've never ducked anything yet. And 1 don't propose to begin at my age. Now what the devil have you gol in mind?" I to!d him. The next day rolled in on a tide of sunshine. A day upon which such a thing as tension should have be*n a million m i I e i away. It wasn't. At least three people at Windover walked in separate auras of fear and anxiety. I was one of the three and therefore I wasn't jorry I had to go into Port Liston that morning. When ! returned Sally was puttering around amongst aulumnal flowers. "Come here a minute, Jim," she called. loath, I ambled over. The sun was painting her hair in gilt wash and her cheeks were a lovely blend of coral and suntan. "You," I said, surveying her, "make a cover girl look like i bundle of old clothes." She passed that understatement to ask abruptly, "Where have you "Oh, round and about" Her eyes narrowed, gave me a searching look. "H'm. You seem to have been round and about a lot lately. Is there anything going on, Jim?" "Not that I know of," I said casually. "Well," impatience edged her tone, "what are you doing, anyway?" "You mean right now? Letting you enchant me." That annoyed her. She stamped a slim foot. "Oh. you make me so dam mad I could sock you. And don't think for a minute that 1 don't know what the score is. You're stymied in this business, Jim Orth. Licked. You're not getting anywhere. Sometimes I think you aren't even trying to. But you're sort of dog-ln-the-manger about it. You won't call In help yourself and whenever 1 want to do it, you stall me. Well. I'm sick of it. You've put me oft and put me off, but this is the end. So I'm giving you the rest of ihe day, to net something accomplished. If you can't, I'm going to the police. The very first thing tomorrow." "Hoity-toity," I said weakly. Bull drew a surreptitious fcrcalh of relief. Tomorrow was okay I'd been fearful, at the start of the tirade, that she might kick over the traces today.
