speaker back to his original sub
ject. "You seemed quite surprised
to see Miss Gallian.
"I was. Couldn't quite place her."
"You recognized her?"
"I still ain't too sure, but blame
me if she don't look a lot like, Daisy
"You knew this Daisy person !"
Kilgour suggested mildly.
"Me? No Bern a number one

little Dave. Only saw Daisy once in
Hong Kong 'bout three years ago."

Inwardly thinking, North made
no further attempt at persuasion.
If the British Intelligence man
elected to approach the problem
through Spurr well, it was just as
"Hey, Cap, better watch your step
with that joy baby if she turns on
the old S. A." Colonel Spurr's loose
smile was. not pretty.
"Thanks for the tip. Bye the bye,
Bruce, you might see if you can
learn anything from the newspa

over the cold brass door knob of the
room m which Chao Ku and Marva
Gallian were waiting when a voice,
menacing as a leveled pistol, warn
ed, "Stand still!"
North knew better than to dis
obey. Hostile eyes were drilling
holes into his shoulder blades.
Promptly he oriented the deadly
undertone as coming from a door di
rectly at his back.
"Is anyone in sight?"
"Then turn around, raise your
hands and come in here."
Silently the door of a perfectly
dark room swung open to shut
again once North had crossed the
threshold. Simultaneously a flash
light blazed into his eyes, making
any reconnaissance simply out of
"What the devil is this?" the man
from G-2 demanded in a hoarse
whisper. "Whoever you are, you've
got the wrong man."
"Be quiet or I shoot, verstehe?"
Then in guttural German. "All

North perforce endured a search
which ended when the second man
pulled a compact little .32 from the
wash leather holter adjusted be
neath his left arm.
"I have it, Kurt." ,
"Gut. Now, mein Her, these
questions you must answer. Where
is Luther Adams gone?" A strong
reek of onions offended North's nos
trils as he merely blinked into the
"I don't know," he muttered and
tried to grasp the significance of
this deadly ambush. He must be
careful and make no mistake. No
matter what happened Luther Ad
ams could not be left at large. Sup
pose the new process fell into the
hands of certain nations who had an
axe to grind with the world?
"We will see about that later.
Who are you?" The fellow sounded
angry and not altogether certain
of his position.
"A member of the police," North
"Ach, so? Who with the Fraulien
is in there?"
'Inspector Chao Ku, of : the
Shanghai Municipal Police."
''Why have you her arrested?"
"She isn't under arrest; at least
not at present."
"Gut." The unknown drew a long
breath then continued in a hoarse
stage whisper. "Now you will go

should." . '
"You are vun stpid kerl, Hen

"Maybe you make it necessary for
us to kill you, and then him."

"I would believe you, mein Herr,"
came the surprising retort. "But I
do not think you are of the politzei.
You are Leonid Dankoff!"
Dankoff ? The name impinged on
North's conScieness like a clench

North could feel the prickof

palms and his throat was going
dry as an arroyo in Death Valley.
What a monumental irony it would
be to perish, now of all times, for
some unknown person's misdeeds.
Instinct told him death had never

An unexpected thing happened;
in a room across the airshaft and
directly behind North's captor
someone switched on a light. In

landed hard, sending the Teuton
reeling backwards, but before
North could follow up his advan

ture and luckily went sprawling
just as the second man fired at him.
Ears filled with the jangle of

crouching position flung a waste

enemy and missed. The missile
