Their clothes were scattered haphazardly around the bedroom. The two big suitcases yawned toothless on the bed. Sin had locked herself in the cottage and was obeying Sagmon Robottom's warning as quickly as possible. She gathered up an armful of lingerie and hurled it into the emptier suitcase. When she picked up her husband's brown dress shoes, her lip commenced to tremble. Where wns John Henry? It wasn't like him to dash off like that without a word unless — Sin's heart thudded faster than ever— unless he had learned something about the murder. Why did he insist on getting mixed up in things that were none o/ his business? Sin wrapped the shoes in (issue paper she had saved from the unpacking the night before. Surely nothing could have happened to him in a crowded resort like Azure. Yet he was so dumb sometimes about the most obvious things. i The shoe wrappings rustled as she laid the package on her stack of slips. She caught herself watching the redwood desk in the outer room— the desk that held the me- School Windows on Snul BOSTON.

If she started the (mlicc looking for John Henrv and he was perfectly all rifihl, he'd he angry about all the fuss. Nevertheless . . . Sin was still pondering (he question pciTiirhcdly when she hc;ird a door close softly in the nc.\l cottage. Slic got lip ofT her knees from atop (he suitense, letting the straps slip tree. That was Miss Jordan's ootlage next door and if she had come back then John Henry . . . Eagerly, she peeked Ihrough the slats of the window blind. • • • JT was not John Henry who had pulled the blue door to gently behind him and paused on the porch of CnltaRo 15. 11 was Gny"or. his cadaverous face peering catiliously up „„(( down the line of silent cottages. Then he stepped off the porch and started walking quickly doivn Ihe flagstone path back to Ihe hotel. Sin opened the front dnor to her own collate and sleppcd outside Gayner had already vanished around a i llrn . Without reason. Sin bepan to run, anxious not to lose sight of him. Gaynor was a tangible link between her and Ihc tangled web that might have enmeshed her husband again. The assistant manager certainly was privileged to inspect the cottages whenever be chose—but something furtive in Gayncr's manner warned her that (bis had been no official visit. Gayncr was just going through Ihc glass doors into the Dunns lobby when Sin readied the sunken pnlio. She slowed her pace as she crossed through the- gay umbrellas and lolling guests. Somebody called her name he- hind her. Sin turned quickly, a hopeful smile beginning on her generous mouth. The smile aborted. H w;ls Sagmon rioboltom, his bron/.e face stprn, Raiinlcrinc toward her Irom the pool. Sin wliirlcd nn<l fled. "Mrs. Connvrri" liobnttom called agnin. She ivshcxt up Hip stops and into the lofahy. Cnjiicr had gone past his rcsistrntion desk without pans- ing and was now jjoing down tho front steps and crossinc (he drive- wn.v. His walk was brisk and pur- po.scful. 3U look like you're in n hurry," Thclma Loomis «iiid in her semitnnsciiline voice, ns Hie two women dodged around each other at the front entrance.

She gave him a tight smile and .didn'l slacken pace. Vernon laboriously forced Ihe glass door open for her. Cayner's brown-suited back was still in sishl throueh the driveway border of palms and tamarisks. He wiis about 50 yards in the lead. This had been cut lo 25 by the time the assistant manager reached Cp.icliclla Slrcct. Sin loitered behind the concealing bole of a palm while Gayner looked up and clown the peaceful street. Then he (iarlctl across nnd went hurriedly down the hill toward Die center of town. Near the corner tif Cahuilla Street, a block away from the Las Dunns, Gayner sidestepped suddenly and disappeared from sifjlit. Sin's pulse quickened but she made herself amble along in a lourist gait. If Gayner had realized he was beini; followed, she didn't want to appear suspicious. She could just keep going downtown. However. Gnyner wns apparently oblivious of his trnclter. When she reached the spot where he'd faded from view, Sin found he'd merely angled sharply into a narrow alley. As she walked past, Gayner was 20 or SO ycrrts up the alley, opening the back door of one of the buildings. The place looked familiar anti It came to Sin why it should. Homer Anglin had died there. G.iyner was letting himself quietly into the Ship of the Desert. (To IV Continued) tiiis year if they continue at their present rate.
