LAURETTA

O'Day followed her into the house. The hall was well-furnished, with good antique furniture. There was a delicate suggestion of perfume about the place.
The maid pushed open a door on the other side of the hall-way. She stood to one side. She said: "Mr. O'Day."
O'Day went into the room. He stood just inside the doorway. Behind him he heard the door close quietly. He stood looking at the woman who had risen from the desk by the window on the opposite side of the room.
He thought that Filson, the landlord of The Crown at Alfriston, was an expert in understatement!
She was, O'Day thought, about thirty-five years of age. As she moved towards him he noticed the unconscious grace with which she moved. Her face was oval, with high cheekbones, violet eyes and a seductive and tremulous mouth, and was framed by curling, auburn hair.
O'Day's quick eyes took in the details of her clothes. They were expensive; well-cut. She wore a coat and skirt of plum-coloured tweed, with a violet crepe blouse. Her shoes were of plum-coloured suede. A diamond and emerald bracelet on her slim wrist sparkled. When she spoke her voice was soft; her enunciation perfect.
She said: "Won't you sit down, Mr. O'Day? I'm always glad to meet a friend of Colonel Needham."
O'Day sat down in the big armchair by the fireplace. He thought that Mrs. Lauretta Deane certainly had something. He wasn't surprised that Needham couldn't get anywhere with her.
