I know vou're trying to protect Dina But you're going about it the wrong way My father has influence " "Everybody has influence." "Georric Maudson can do anything, and he will My father and George both. What do you want?" "There's nothing I want," I said savagely. She stepped back, flinching as if from a blow And her eyes were like pfray-blue ice and her skin was taut over the cheekbones. "At iea. r t." she snid woodcnly, "you admit that you havte that briefcase." "I don't admit a thing If you were Willie Shad, I'd telJ you to net out." She picked up her coat and stalked to the door Her profile was impassive as she oassed me, and I wondered why women had the power to make a man. however right he was. feel like a heel. She didn't open the door when her hand was on the knob. She paused for a last word, tike Willie Shad, like anybody who was too desperate to Rive up trying. "Your fiun doesn't frighten me," she said as she le/t. We had fine seats in a hox behind third base. Joey was never quiet, yelling at every long by firuno Fiscde fly and hurling derision at the umpires and the opposing players; and the Rarenton Tigers came through for him in the eighth with a five-run rally that meant the game After the game, we headed southeast, and before we had driven a block a red car appeared in my mirror. We stopped at a roadside restaurant. When I pulled into the parking area beside the stucco building, the car stopped at the side of the road. 1 said to Joey, "Wait here a minute." and sauntered over to the other car ' knew all o! West Amber's small police force by sight, so the man in the car was probably a county or state cop. His face was just a middle-aged face, and his eyes were carefully not interested in me. I said: "In case you lose us, I'm driving my son to Carr- mount School in Westchcster County, then I'm coming right back. We're stopping to eat so you'd better grab a bite." He curled the corners of his moulh and said nothing. I returned to my car and Joey and I went into the restaurant. A few minutes latei the cop— if he was a cop—was sitting at the counter in the dining room. We, reached the school boarding house at 11:30. . The. only light was in the downstairs hall. We shook hands and he went upstairs. The car followed me home. • * * 'THERE was a note under my door. It was written in a neat bold script in pencil on a sheet torn from a pocket notebook, and it saidi "Phont me as soon as you get home. Martha." My watch said 20 minutes to five. I dropped down on my bed and dialed her number. "Boss," I said, "was Dina found?" "Not before the II o'clock news. A private detective was here to see me late in the afternoon. He was at your place too, but of course you weren't home." ""What did he want?" "I got the impression that he's seeing everybody who knows you. When I left the note in your house, Ted Gallagher told me the detective had also had a talk with him and his wife." "For whom is he working?" "I couldn't get it out of him. He seems to be chiefly interested in finding the briefcase. His name is Ben Helm/' "Did he drink your liquor and slug you and then make love to you?" "Like in the movies? Seriously, Paul, I'm afraid of him. He sits and smokes a pipe and says, 'Uh-huh' whenever you tell him anything and speaks wistfully of his wife who's an actress 3000 miles away in Hollywood: and all the time his kind brown eyes are looking deep inside of you. I think he knows I helped you that night." * * • TT'NUCKLES rapping on the door awakened me I put on slippers and robe and went to the door. It was five minutes to 11. A man smoking a pipe stood outside, "Good morning, Mr. Flagg," he said as affably as a salesman. "Come in, Helm." "Uh-huh." The private detec- , live stepped into the living room and thoughtfully closed the door behind him. His brown eyes, set rather deep, shifted about as if looking for something. He said: "Was it Miss Paley or the people upstairs who told you my name?" "Martha. She couldn't wait to tell me she had a crush on you." I shook a cigarct out of a pack"What's your offer—a bribe or a threat?" "I don't know if either would do any good," Ben Helm said. "Randolph and Handy tried bullying. Maudson tried pressure. Willie Shad tried a substantial bribe. Hannah Rahn—I'm not sure, but sooner or later an attractive woman tries to cash in on her sex appeal."
