' | Trotter, Hagar and Stephanie I began to move quietly to the door. "Miss Scrcnov!" Yakov called faintly. Stephanie turned. ' "1 ask your pardon, but I cannot think of anyone who might feel kindly toward Babush-. ka. Would it be possible that you would call at my house anil see to my small cat's food and water? Also, thai the window where she jumps to the yard is open sufficiently? A key to my studio will be found beneath the fiftli (lower pot on the window ledge." "I'l! be glad to, Mr. Vakov." She hesitated a moment in the doorway as though there were something more she wanted to say. Hagar fidgeted as Trotter drove them up Cresl Drive to the eray- shingled house. When he refused to come iiijide for a cup of coflee, i her face showed frank relief and she bid him an enthusiastic goad- by. "Seems like I've been to Timbuktu," Hagar commented as she . slid the key into the lock. "Place'll look lo me like iLs carpeted in gold after being a guest of the city for two days." She swung the door open and iieaved an cx- ' plosive sigh: "Ha! Here we are! j Well, what do you say, girl? Isn't it good to be home?" ! Stephanie sank down on her fa- vorile hassock. "Poor old Tom O'Neill." Hagar strode over and stood with her lists on her hips: "Why poor? The man murdered Falter your aunt, and had a try at Yakov and your own man, Keddy!" "I feel sorry for anyo'nc who lived with Nellya. I'm sure she was the one who caused it all." Hagar marched toward the : kitchen. "Don't speak ill of the dead, ' she called back. "How about a cup of coffee?" Just as Hagar was putting on (he teakettle, there was the sound of squealing brakes outside, followed by the slam of a car door. * • * OEODY stepped ill, smiling, and Stephanie flung her arms around his neck. He laughed down at her: "Easy, baby, easy! Remember my contusions! I'm not supposed to have any excitement for at least a week. After that—we'll gel married!" Hagar glanced at them with mock severity. "Never mind the romance—lime for that later. You came over here to letl us a story, Reddy. Hegin with the letters, the ones Yakov swiped from Faker's l>lai:e Ihc night of the murder." Keddy sighed. "Tnal's as good a starting point as any, I guess. Well, the letters were from Nell to Falter, and from another Mrs O'Neill to Falter." "Another Mrs. .O'Neill!" It came simultaneously from Hagar and Stephanie. Reddy nodded. "It seems that Tom was not legally divorced from Wife No. -1 when he'married wife No. 5—NcU. Falter, with his genius for digging up little items like that about people, had got wind of it and was blackmailing Tom. Strange as il may seem, Tom seemed actually to be in love with Nell, and Falter had convinced him that she'd leave his bed and board if she found out about the bigamy angle." Hagar snapped her fingers: "So he killed Falter because he was tired of paying blackmail?" "No, it wasn't quite as simple as that. Falter was doing a neat little job of double blackmail. He'd been in correspondence with the other Mrs. O'Neill who was working down in Miami and had convinced her that she could get quite a nice income out of Tom by allowing Martin lo handle the affair for her. Falter was getting SoOO a month out of Tom and was sending about a third of it to the "According lo the teller she wrote Fuller, Tom had given her a nice round sum when they called il (mils and she liad agreed lo let hiiri divorce her. But, before he sol around to Hint formality, he met Nell, was completely bowled over and married her without bothering to divorce wife No. 4." "Okay," Ungar agreed, "I'll buy that. Now, then, you figure Tom killed Martin because he was tired of paying him money and because he was afraid Martin would even- , tuully lell Nell nbout the Miami allair and Nell would leave him'.'" 'jVJ OT quite. Tom had concealed three tilings inside that blue ceramic figurine he made at the time of the first murder. One was the murder weapon, which, as Arnold f'ficflcr suspected, was tiiis bodkin thing Tom had talked him oil! of; Ihe second was a bloodstained shirt Tom evidently had worn at Hie time of Ihe murder; and the third was a crumpled, letter Nell had written to Martin when he was out of town on one of his deliberately arranged trips. We found out from Trotter that Falter had pulled that little trick before to gel bis intended victim to write incriminating letters. Anyway, this letter from Nell O'Neill told Falter she intended lo divorce Tom, hold him up for a tidy settlement and Ihen elope wilh Fallcr. "Tom and fuller were drinking in Bob's place—they had an argument there. Bui before thai Tom slipped sleeping pills in Filter's drink, so he could go lo Walter's sludio later and search for the blackmail letters. Tom was menially and emotionally unbalanced and so when he found Ibis particular lellcr from Nell, he went inlo a jealous blackout and stabbed the sleeping Fallen He look that one lellcr with him lo brood over and foolishly lefl Ihe others on the floor, where Yakov discovered them later."
