rpHE thing as I saw it was just
Clint Mnttison, a gangster, wanted
by the police, renting the Cottage
as a hideaway, and then having
his plans upset when Derek Grady
came to Kraiktower to hide, too.
And hero was where another
detail dovetailed perfectly. It had
been the morning of the day we
found Derek's body that Mattison
had come up to the big house to
pay his rent. All 1 had to do was
to suppose that Derek had seen
Mattison and recognized him as
he went hack to the Cottage, and
that Mnttison had shot Derek
rather than risk exposure He had
a gun. I had seen It the night in
the Cottage when I had (led from
the Tiling on the path. He had
taken n gun and n flashlight out
of his desk.
Of course, there was the hook
Mattison had given Kathy to read,
the one she had left on my desk
in the study. But if Mattison was

might have figured it was safer to
assume the nnmo of a real writer
and supply himself with some of
said writer’s work to make it more
I was quite excited about It by
the time I reached home, and the
first thing T did was to look in the
study for Mattison’s book. I got
the publisher's name and address
from the fly leaf and then con-
vinced the telephone girl in the
village that 1 really wanted to
send a telegram.

with Walter and Connie and came
toward me. And I was conscious
only of my personal dislike for
him! It seems impossible now that
I shouldn’t have felt some pre-

his coming meant.
It didn’t take a clairvoyant to
see that George was plenty both-
ered about the notoriety centering
on the girl he was going to marry,
and that he was at white heat to
clear it up at once. He said that
most of the papers were letting
Derek’s death slide as a gang mur-
der, but that there were all kinds
of rumors going around. I asked
what kind of rumors, but he
wouldn't be specific.
