Foster used a pass key and entered- Norton Iny sleeping on the bed, his breath strongly alcoholic "Search the room and see whal you find," I said. The only discovery was an empty pint whisky bottle. "What are you driving at?" Humbert demanded. "Norton ain'' going to like (his when he comes around. You lold Dominico you'd turn over the diamonds." II didn't look as if Norton would come around naturally for hours, so I said, "All right, let's go to-my room." We all did. Pat Plinjol had remained in Ihe corridor with Teresa. She dropped her eyes as I emerged. As we rounded the corner) we encountered GremclMck • nd Bryer, I said: "You wanted lo check Phajol's diamonds. Now's your chance, Come along." Brjer »nd Grcmcheck both looked me over with puzzlement; then they followed. I opened rny door and said: "Go to work. It's all yours. Chief. You'll find (he diamonds somewhere in my room." Th« two policemen went to work. They went through all the drawer*, looked behind everything and even tore up (he bed They took the top ofT the reservoir ' in the bathroom; they did a pretty thorough job but still they found no diamonds. 1 asked Foster: "As room clerk you ought to know something about this hotel. Where's a good hiding place for diamonds?" The clerk reflected, then shrugged. "I don't know. Seems 1o me they've looked everywhere they could be hidden." ' 1 nodded toward the medicine cabinet counler-sunk into the wall. "How about space below that thing?" foster nodded. "Could be." Humbert ordered; "Take the tiling out." The clerk went lo the phone and summoned the hold carpenter rescnlly a young man arrived He removed it easily with no other fool than a small screwdriver. • • • ffUMBERT reached eagerly as the medicine cabinet was re- hand fount! something in the wall space directly under Ihe medicine cabinet He brought up a canvass bag. With „ look of triumph "in Ins eyes, he i,el,i oul the bag. rne bag was opened It contained about 20 parcels Dominico opened one or the parcels The parcel contained black Brazilian carbon. "Those are [he diamonds, all right! said Dominico. 'Well," said Humbert to me et "t ™v ?l " <?S WC " confess ar "i with lite but I'm making'no promises, and I'm warning you that anylhmg you say wilt be held against you." J turned to Humbert. •Tin familiar with my rights. Liner. I was a cop myself. Also for (he sake of the record I'm denying that I murdered Phajol or stole his diamonds. Tliey were planted in my room by the killer " Dominico said: "You've got a lot of nerve, trying to gel away with a story like that! You knew where Ihe diamonds were!" 1 moved to the window. Across the court 1 could see the shadowy form of Lee Norton lying on his bed. [ pointed: "There's the killer. He walked across the lobby roof to my room went through to Pat's room and wailed till I led p ua j 0 i. He had once been Teresa's boy friend, and Ihe couple had both met Phajol through Pat. Right. Pat?" Stunned by the turn at events, I she nodded without understanding "Dad knew Lee- But—". "Bui Lee Norton capitalized on that. Your ralher must have assumed that he was visiting you in your room. So Norton had an easy lime o! it. When your fathsr'l back was carelessly turned. Norton clubbed him down. Then he took the diamonds and left the same way he had come. Later he decided lo play safe and plant the diamonds in my room. H they were found they would b* «vi- dence against me. not him." Humbert eyed me steadily and shook his head. "That's not good enough, Dorsam. Norton was out cold, and ! lie's been that waj ever since ' lleber. the bartender, took him to ' Ilia! room." "No. Chief. You saw the emptj bottle we found. Norton ,iad • bottle on him, and the bottle wai full. After he had planted Ihe diamonds he drank the whisky His slumber is sound enough, bul 1 think it will be his undoing i think we can trick him into talking when he wakes up." nEGRUDGINGLY ' H u m b e r t agreed. Pot went to her room, still avoiding my eyes and Teresa followed her The resl of us went to Norton's room. But just as we reached It three sharp reports. mufTled but plainly audible, sounded somewhere on the same floor I jerked loose and raced around the corner. I reached my room and flung open.the door » was empty. I disregarded the crowd that had followed me and opened Ihe door to Pat's room Pal was not (here. Teresa Jordan lay sprawled on the door with an ugly bruise on her temple A« I entered she opened her eyes and moaned. 'Where's (he Phajol girl?" Humbert asked. Teresa stared wildly, then iaid: She suddenly struck me—lhal'i all I remember." Dominico was almost In tears.
