He sucked the flame into his pipe and appeared immensely satisfied when it ignited the tobacco. That wss all. I could go then, In the outer office the redhead was alone. I went downstairs, and in the building lobby I saw Hannah Rahn and Russ Handy. He hnrclly looked like the same man. He was smiling, and I didn't remember ever having seen him smile before. Some men needed pretty women to make them human. "Paul!" Hannah had seen me anrl she name to me quickly. She was in her light-weight gray coat with patch pockets. Her he;id was bare, giving her that vigorous windblown look. Her eyes were bright and clear in spite of the fact that she had had only those couple of hours of sloop in my car. Though Handy wasn't the only spectator in the lobby, she put her hands on my •upper arms. "Paul, it's—it's nil right now." "Sure," I said. "Dina is dead too. That makes it fine." "Of course I'm terribly sorry. But I mean now the police are sure you couldn't have. . . " "If al?o means I haven't Vhc briefcase," I said, "so you don't have to bother with me." "Paul, that's not fair." "Look." I said. "Russ Handy is waiting for you there by the door. 1 don't want to take up your time." She laughed then and her eyes sparkled. "Why 1 hnrdly know him. I3ut I think it's sweet of you, Paul, to be jealous. 11 I must have dozed off as .soon as I got to bed. Then a pounding on the door startled me awake, "Paul!" Ted called. "Hey, Paul, •re you there?" by Bruno Fisefier He was at the connecting door to the cellar. I unbolted the door. Ted was holding a briefcase. "Guess where I found it?" he said excitedly. "In the furnace." • • • T TOOK the briefcase from him •*• by the handle. The brown leather and the two broad straps were covered with a fine layer of ash. The sides bulged. "Why didn't they look there?" I said. "I figure because the furnace was still on Friday afternoon when the police came here." "In that heat?" "Well, Thursday morning, when L got up, I didn't know how warm the weather would turn, so I put in con] and banked the fire all the way. It was still going strong when Mrs. Larkin got here in the afternoon, but she .must've stuck the briefcase in the ashpit and shook the dead ashes on the bottom of the grate over it." I carried the briefcase into the iving room. "But that furnace banks good; keeps a fire 48 hours, maybe more. So when the police poked Friday afternoon, they saw there was a fire in the furnace and the ashpit pretty clean except for what looked like a flat pile of ashes all the way back. They knew if she hid the briefcase it was the day before and figured the fire had been going all that time, and a burning furnace isn't the place to hide anything that burns." I laid the briefcase on the table and snt down. He wnnt back into the cellar. For it while I didn't have the ner^y to move. Overhead I icard a muttering—Ted and Charlotte speaking. I pushed myself to my fcot and locked the door to the collar and then the :ntranctt door and returned to the (able. Afte. that I sat down and I unbuckled the briefcase straps. There were four black cylinders in the briefcase. The records were, after all, records- spoken words on wax. I was hardly surprised after last night when on the golf course Hannah Rahn had jumped on what she had thought was this briefcase. I stood the four cylinders up on end on the table, like a child's clocks, and wondered how I could find out what was on them. The problem was solved when I had another look into the briefcase and found a long white envelope containing onion skin paper. * * 9 T READ the first of the four transcripts: April I, 9:43 p. m.
