MERYS

Leaning against the door of his office, his burly figure relaxed and easy, a smile on his face, was Parker, the hall-porter, looking with a benevolent eye on the guests around him. O'Day went across to the reception on the right of the lounge. He smiled at the girl behind the counter; began idly to turn over the pages of the register. Then he came back to the current page. Eight or nine spaces before the one in which his own name was written he saw it -"Mrs. Merys Vanner, London." And the number of the room `134.' That would be on the second floor, he thought.
He walked slowly across the lounge towards the hall porter. He asked: "Parker, when did Mrs. Vanner arrive?"
" This afternoon, Mr. O'Day," said Parker. "About four o'clock."
O'Day nodded. He turned; walked across the lounge, through the swing doors, into the American bar. There were only half a dozen people in it, sitting up against the bar, drinking cocktails.
She was in the far corner. She was reading The Evening News, and apparently she was interested in nobody. O'Day grinned. That was her line-that she was never interested in anybody. What she wanted was for them to be interested in her-especially if they were good looking or presentable men. And after she'd concluded that they were interested in her, she either developed interest or she didn't, according to the way she felt. Merys, he thought, was definitely something.
She looked superb. She was wearing a black dinner frock of tulle over a slim-fitting, heavy satin foundation.
