"I could tell them who shot Steelgrave," I said. "Because I know who didn't. They might believe me."

I didn't say anything. I relit my pipe.

"What did you sell Steelgrave for the grand?"

"Don't worry," I said. "I'm not going to. It wouldn't cost me enough. And it would cost somebody else too much."

"One thing I regret," I said. "Not seeing your meeting back in Manhattan, Kansas, with dear old Mom. Not seeing the fight over how to split that grand. I bet that would be something to watch."

The telephone rang and she jumped a foot. I turned and reached for it and put my face against it and said, "Hello."

"Leila told me she told him," I said. "If necessary Leila would tell the world she told him. Just as she would tell the world she killed Steelgrave-if that was the only way out. Leila is a sort of free-and-easy Hollywood babe that doesn't have very good morals. But when it comes to bedrock guts-she has what it takes. She's not the icepick type. And she's not the blood-money type."

And she's not the blood-money type."

There was a sound in the background. I swung around and saw the door click shut. I was alone in the room.

"Who could prove it?" she half squealed. "Who's alive to prove it? You? Who are you? A cheap shyster, a nobody." She went off into a shrill peal of laughter. "Why even twenty dollars buys you."

"What did you sell Steelgrave for the grand?"

"I could make you give them to the police," she said.

The color flowed away from her face. and left her as pale as ice. Her mouth quivered, then tightened up hard into a little knot. She pushed her chair back and leaned forward to get up.

She stood rigid and glaring. I finished my tearing-up job and lit the scraps of paper in the tray.

The small head jerked up. The light glinted on the glasses. There were no eyes behind them.

"Amigo, are you all right?"

"Amigo, are you all right?"

"I could tell the police," she whispered. "I could tell them a lot of things. They'd believe me."

Her mouth fell open and she looked ugly. She closed her lips and pressed them together. It was a tight hard little face that I was looking at.

"What did you sell Steelgrave for the grand?"

There was a sound in the background. I swung around and saw the door click shut. I was alone in the room.

I poked at the paper with a pencil to keep it burning. She came slowly, step by step, to the desk and her eyes were fixed on the little smoldering heap of torn prints.

The telephone rang and she jumped a foot. I turned and reached for it and put my face against it and said, "Hello."

"Who could prove it?" she half squealed. "Who's alive to prove it? You? Who are you? A cheap shyster, a nobody." She went off into a shrill peal of laughter. "Why even twenty dollars buys you."
