Under the filter ing rays of morning sun the will mural of Waikikl beach seemed to come alive, beckoning the on looker to a land of eternally balmy breezes where life was forever unconflned. Vlnce stared at it with longing as Johanaon talked. ;. "Too bad Donovan snapped that bow string," the investigator commented, "Now we won't be able to test the servants." "They were all accounted for at the time of Sophie s death anyway," Vince said. "As a mat ter of fact 1 don't see what your little trial proved." that Juiia wasn't trying to hide anything, which should be a load on your mna ana it provea that Bissett was." "He did seem to hold back," Vince mused. "What about Dono van?" "I'm going to quiz them as soon. as i get r aimer on lor town. "You're sending him in?" "Yes he's got the iimjams badly. I don't want him going berserk.". "H,he under arrest?" "Naturally. Illegal possession of narcotics." He turned as Bates appeared in the doorway. The deputy's face was florid from irritation. "We've got Palmer out in the station wagon, boss" Johanson frowned , and knock ed out his pipe. "Okay. Take the game warden with you to keep an eye on the Doc we don t want him trying to wrestle you for the steering wheel. Be back in a minute' Bonnay: wait will vou?" . Vince nodded and Johanson returned in a minute followed by the Donovans. They looked frightened and defiant as the in vestigator careiuily placed them in chairs apart from each other vet facing him. With that separa tion , their mutual strength and defiance seemed to dissolve. "I'd like to know why you two Chapter 24 IRIS' eyes Dulged with horror. "Where did that come from?" "It's your bag," Johanson ob served dryly. "Suppose you tell us" Bud Donovan crossed to his wife's chair and put his arm pro tectively around her shoulders. He reminded Vince of a bantam game cock on the defensive and with several feathers missing but not ready to concede defeat "Someone is trlng to frame Ufc." heinsisted ngrilyi ,. L Jphanson-vfllped, his L thumb acfoss the corners of the bills. "I could fig up an-excellent ease against you two based on circum stantial evidence alone. You tame here to blackmail Mannley: he re fused td take the bait so Donovan here, an expert with a knife, let him have it then robbed him. Vou could have murdered him just be fore two o'clock and returned to vour room for your chat with Pal mer while Mannley was dead." It sounded convincing but Vince knew Johanson dldnt believe it any more than he did. Mannley himself had said. "We can elimi nate the Donovans." "We didn't take It" Iris eyes were growing dull and hopeless. T cant imagine how it got into mv knitting bagl" "I can! 1 know!" fbey all stared. Hugh Mannley was peering in at the half -open window. Johanson actually looked shocked. "Have you, been there all the time?" "Yes. all the time. I heard everything you said" Everything! Then he had heard of Simeon's death yet he showed no anguish or surprise. Was it pos sible that Sophie had told him after all? Hugh perched on the sill like some wary bird. The French lady put the money in there last night he announced triumphantly. - "How do you know?" Johanson demanded sternly. "I saw her lust before you turned your flashlight on me. I was peeking through the window and she was just the other side of the glass with the moonlight shining on her.

With out knowing if you'd ' be wel come?" ! .Donovan gulped and his wife paused in the knitting she bad taken up. "Let me explain it Bud." Her eyes glittered as she faced Jo hanson. "We read about Mann- ley's being here in a San Fran cisco paper in August but it didn't mean much to us at the time. Bud was sick and 1 was working in a department store. It was after we saw the ipecial :g that we remembered." "The specialist?" "Yes. Bud needs an operation bad. There's only two doctors in the country can do it and it will cost plenty. Her voice trembled then picked ud. "We did Mann ley a favor once; we thought he might lend us me dough. Johansdn looked skeptical. "Why didn't you write to him about it?" "Because Mannley was hard," Iris said bitterly. "He'd ignore a letter." "And what did he say to your proposition?" "He said if he lent us the mon ey he'd charge six percent in terest" INCE stifled the oath that rose to his I ids. The sweet molassesey aroma of tobacco filled the roonj as Johanson be gan packing his pipe. "What were you and Palmer discussing in your room at two o'clock in the morning?" Iris' eyes went to her husband: they held a question, pleading with him, and he gave a barely perceptible nod. "We were talk ing blackmail," she said. Vince was startled but Johan son nodded as though he had been expecting it "The three of us knew some thing about Mannley." Iris went on. "Palmer was planning to use it and he accused Bud and me of coming here to chisel in." Iris knitting bag fell to the her she took the package from the front of her dress and put it in the knitting bag." Johanson eyed him as though he were on a witness stand and were undergoing cross examina tion. "Would you swear to that?" "Yes. 1 swear it I swear it!" Hugh giggled with excitement. The investigator turned to the Donovans, a rueful smile pulling at the corners of his mouth. "That Will be all for now then. ..." Iris didn't forgive easily. "So we're no longer considered mur derers!" ."If I were positive you were murderers, you d be under arrest" he replied.-! merely said; j could rig a convincing case., and. I still can." And don't you lorget it for one moment, his eyes warned them. IT TOOK more persuasion tc get rid of Hugh and it was only minutes after his departure that Soma Deveraux entered the room in , answer to the investigator's summons. She wore a jade green suit trimmed with kolinsky and silver bells dangled at her small well-shaped ears: their faint mu sical tinkle and the attar of cycla men followed her into the room. When she sat down Johanson walked over to her and held out the packet of money. "You've seen this before. Madam Deveraux?" She leaned forward slightly "Non. nevair." "Hugh saw you place it in Mrs Donovan's knitting bag last night." "You would take the seemple minded one's word against Sonia's?" , "In this case yes." Johanson's expression was adamant. She gave a little shrug of defeat "Very well. I tell you what hap pen: I deed take the money ten days ago: I try to geeve eet back but the proper onoortunity deed not present eetself.

And now' this disclo sure! , , "Interesting," Johanson com mented. "Tell us about it Mrs. Donovan." ( "There isn't much to tell." Iris said. "Bud and I were in the is lands with a traveling vaude ville troupe sixteen years ago. Mannley was playing stage-door Johnny to the soubrette and he asked the three of us over to his beach place at Anahola on Kauai for a weekend." She paused to pick up a stitch in her knitting then continued. "The second night a native busted in on us asking for Pal mer. He said a native woman was having a baby and needed help. The Doc and I brought the baby into the world, it was a cute little light-skinned girl." "How did you know It was Mannley's child?" Johanson said. "He admitted it" Iris said dis- gustedly. "He was drinking heav ily and when we told him about the baby's birth he just laughed and said he didn't have to worry because the Hawaiian girl had an unsuspecting husband that Mann ley had sent off to the States and he'd never learn the truth." Johanson stared fixedly at the floor as though he could see the bulky outline of Simeon Mann ley's body on the bear rug and didn't like what he saw. Smoke drifted lazily from a corner of his long thin mouth. "And you say you had no intention of blackmailing Mann ley?" Bud moistened his lips. "No, we didn't We hoped he'd remember Iris' kindness in helping with the baby's birth but we didn't plan to remind him." 'Then how do you explain that?" Johanson's long finger shot out. It pointed at Iris' fallen knit ting bag and a neatly tied pack age of hundred dollar bills half hidden by a jumble of yarn. imagination Soma Deveraux von Proski!" "Von Proski!
