Standing at her shoulder. Charlie Rcddy let his eyes rest on the smooth shining wing of hnir which fell forward across her check. "Yon see," she pointed with the pencil, "the carnelian itself is carved with the figure of a weeping woman. Around the stone is a narrow gold frame set wUh tiny diamonds. This frame has what you might call a super-frame'ex- tending into Mtle points, like a crown, and on top of each point is a small pearl." He was'noticing how blue her eyes were. "Those diamonds—in the pin, I mean—are they what makes it valuable? Or the pearls maybe?" "It's valuable because of what it is, because of what it represents. It has a history like something out of a story book. The locket was made for Isabella d'Este in the 15th century—" "Did you say 'locket'? 1 thought it was a pin." Her eyes averted, she spoke slowly: "Hagar and I have reason to believe it is a locket." "Either it is a locket or it isn't. it it is, it opens, and usually reveals family photographs or a lock of someone's hair." | "But it won't open. Not unless .jt.ii know how. v And we can't— that is, we haven't had a chance to find out how." Roddy's gray eyes searched her face. "I understood that you and Miss Rlnir only saw Ihe cameo twice." 'But we looked at it very close Ihe day Arnold Pfeiftcr brought it here." "Look, Stephanie Smith, how about breaking down and letting me be your friend—I have a hunch you could use one. 1 guarantee you can trust me with whalever's nn your mind." He came toward her. She backed away from him. He looked with surprise at the tears in her eyes. 'No," she said shakily, "no, I can't trust you! You're investigating this—this mess, aren't you? You're part of the police department, you're not interested in me except as a source of information." Her blue eyes flashed fire: "I'm not giving you any! I wouldn't, even if I could!" He shrugged, sighing. "Believe it or not, but 1 am interested in you! And as a person, not as a principal in this case. And 1 think we could be good friends. But, until this thing is all cleared up, we apparently haven't got a chance of establishing a personal rapport." Her eyes locked with his. His grin returned and he released her; "Because you're one of the suspects," he said lightly, "it wouldn't be ethical for me to invite'you out (o dinner, so we'll just put that in the Happy Anticipation department. But nothing in (he books says I can't drive you home. Isn't it about closing time?" CTKPHANIE gave him a relieved smile. "It is," she agreed, "and I'd love a ride home-." She moved around the shop, turning out lights, adjusting blinds. "I can't imagine whal's happened to Hagar. She said she'd be back around 4. RENT A CAR Drive Anywhere You Plrast Simpson Oil Co.

They did not sec the black convertible which crept up n ft out of the shop and swung into the side driveway. When they reached the house, Stephanie accepted Charlie's hand as she climbed from the car. She turned a "rave face toward the "lark house: "I'm worried. 1 wander if Hng;tr could hnve had an accident. She drives that little car of hers at top speed all the time." "Tell you what," Keddy said, "why don't I come in and wait with you a while. If she doesn't come hack, we can drive around and hunt her up." Stephanie nodded. "Come in then. I'll make a sandwich and some tea. Or, there's beer, if you'd like that." • • • T TK walked toward the kitchen. " "Look, Stephanie Smith, this is after-hours, let's use first names. Mine's Charlie." He stopped in (he doorway. "What's so on I Ihe back window?" Without turning, she s a i d: "There's a Li^ht c in Hagar's studio. I was trying to see if she's walking around in there." She leaned closer to the window screen: "Hagar!" she called, "Hagar, arc you working?" They listened. There was no sound except the rustle of the wind m the tall palm trees. She unlocked the back door and switched on the outside light. They picked their way silently across the damp grass. They found the door to the studio standing slightly ajar. Stephanie pushed it open gingerly. He followed her In and they looked about them in the cluttered sludio. Stephanie shook her head >n puzzled fashion: "She never leaves ihts door unlocked, or Ihe light on. Most of her cameos are in .'that case over in the corner — they're quite valuable, too. She's always so careful about protecting them. Sec those bars across the windows? And that big window has a burglar alarm on the sill." (To Be Continued) ph one 888
