Mart shrugged. Lceana felt he was laughing at her. "But look, honey," Mart pointed out, don't let personalities turn your head. Jnst because you don't like the gal doesn't mean she's a k'llcr. After all, Sondra didn't run away after Peter." • "And she did ask to be found," Leeanci said, her voice sharp with ariger. "Smoke coming from the chimney of a house locked up light She knew someone would notice it. You said yourself, Sheriff, everybody knows Lick Williams goes to Miami for the winter. She wonted to be found " "All right, all right," Purdy said petulantly. "Why?" "So she could come back here to—" "To what!" demanded the shcrifl*. ' Lecana ran her, tongue around hoi dry lips.

Jasper looked up, startled. "Why --ah—right away. I mean, only a few seconds." "How long did K take you to reach Thorne City? To lind me?" Oh, five minutes. Maybe less; I drove fast. Now will you tell me what this is about?" Purdy looked at Leeana. She said, "Where was I when you left, Jasper?" "On the couch in the hall. They said you'd killed Aunt Maggie and then fainted." He paused a long moment; then, when no one moved to speak, asked plaintively: "You do know—now, don't you?" "I think so, Jasper." Leiana felt uneasy as the man's brown-marble eyes bored into hers.
