He saw Arnold Pficffer hunched in one of the big oak armchairs while Peters scowled at nim across the desk The Chief looked up: "Yes?" His voice was brusque. "Excuse me. Chief. Miss Smith nrfa I are leaving for her place. Just thought I'd tell you." "Okay, okay. Sec you up there in 15 minutes or so." He waved a hand m dismissal. Reddy took Stephanie's arm. Wow! The Chiefs really got his back up about something. Wonder what Pfioffer's been telling him Find out soon enough, I guess." The car beamed its lights up the street, picking out the purple blossoms of the misombryanlhe- mnm that covered Hagar's parking strip. Reddy leaned forward, "Don't see Yakov's car anywhere. I'm glad we got here first." HE braked the car to i stop, "Did you leave your lights on?" Stephanie was gathering up her purse and gloves, "Yes. I thought I might be coming back alone—I don't like to walk into a dark house." Reddy gave her his hand as she climbed from the car: "Now you're fhowing good sense. At a time tike this, a good, healthy well-founded fear is nothing to be ashamed of." one fumbled for her key, "When :s Inspector Trotter coming? I expected to and quite a reception committee on the front steps, and here w« are all by ourselves." Redrfy put his arms around her and gently drew her close: "Thanks for pointing thai out," ne whispered. When he had lifted his lips from hers Stephanie looked up at him. "I liked that, Charlie." "In that case—" He bent toward her once moie. . A raucous motor laboring up the hill warned them of an approaching audience, They separated and stood watching the lights. oncoming A FF ' W mi ""tes later Trotter had joined them and they were in the house, quipping about California weather. At last Trotter looked at hit; watch: "Yakov knows I'm with the Bureau, so perhaps all of us will learn more if 1 keep out of sight when he arrives. Perhaps in Miss Blair's bedroom. But, meanwhile I'd like a quick look at the cameo and the paper you found in it." As Stephanie macie her way to the bedroom, Reddy asked: "Am I out of order asking what Yakov's up to?" "Not out of order, just a trifle previous," Troiier replied, fillin" his pipe. "The whole thing's turned out different than we anticipated. Originally I was dogging Falter. He turned out to be something of a red herring and Yakov appeared to be the fox. We suspect he's doing some Job for the Russian government." Stephanie returned with the silver box and the small fragment of folded paper. Stephanie translated the paper for Trotter: "The Cherry Orchard, gold and morocco binding. Dr. Urich, SI. Petersburg College." Trotter wrote rapidly in Ills notebook and then examined the silver box. Reddy strode the length of the room and back, "The thing that bothers me most is that there doesn't appear to be anv connection between the mystery of the cameo and the mystery of the tivo murders. Rut. the whole thine musl tie up somewhere." He i-ave a short, lueful laugh, "II 'ihi« kecps_up. they'll ask me to turn ,„ my police badge and confine mv talents to ambulance chasing." " Trotter had pried out the velvet cushion and was running his fingers over the inside surface ol tl,<, silver box. He looked up at Rcdily and grinned: "I've felt the same way from lime to time. Somehow or other I vc s hunch this thing's ready to fail into a nice clean-cut pattern ! like the colored glass segment* m a kaleidoscope." He fitted the cushion into the box ami returned the cameo to its resting plmv Didn't Yakov say that these Jct- lers or papers he has will gel Miss Blair out of jail? Well, it follows that they'll also point 10 the ro-il murderer." He snapped his fingers, "Case solved!" "Yeah." Reddy consulted his watch. "If [,e ever gets here wilh the papers!" "" is getlilif; late," Stephanie commented. "You don't think he could've come bark while I was away from [lie house?" "How about phoning him?" * * * AS she started across the floor the phone pealed shrilly from' Hagars bedroom. Trotter and Reddy turned attentive faces Inward the sound as Stephanie hurried to answer the call. She returned immediately and signaled Rcddy: "It's Chief Peters." Reddy's eyebrows went up in surprise. He strode quickly to the phone. Stephanie and Trotter sat facing each other, their expressions mutely questioning whether to make small talk, or, dropping all pretense, try to eavesdrop on Roddy's words. Uy unspoken agreement, they eavesdropped: "Who found him?" Redtly was asking urgently. Trotter ami Stephanie stared at eacl^other with startled eyes. "Was he able to any anything?" toidy was demanding. "What docs he doctor say?" "It must be Mr. Yakov." Stcph- inie whispered. "Something's happened to him!"
