"Something like that," said O'Day. Vaguely he realised, almost angrily, that he had lost the lead in the conversation; that Mrs. Deane was quietly pushing him around; probably amusing herself in the process.
She smiled again. "That was very nice and friendly of you. I expect you were so concerned for the happiness of your friend Colonel Needham that the idea occurred to you that you might persuade me to marry him when he himself had failed. Which seems to indicate that you are very fond of Colonel Needham or conceited enough to imagine that a woman who had never met you might be swayed by your opinions."
O'Day grinned at her. "Well ... I asked for it and I've got it. But I've known stranger things come off. In my particular business you sometimes learn to believe in impossibilities."
She rose from her chair. "Before you go, Mr. O'Day, you might care to satisfy my curiosity on one small point. What is your business?"
O'Day thought: What the hell! He was getting nowhere. He might as well play it off the cuff.
He said: "Mrs. Deane, do me a favour and sit down and listen to me for a moment. I promise you I won't take up much of your time. First of all I'll tell you about my business. I'm a private detective, and I don't give a damn whether you marry Nicky Needham or Old King Cole. I came down here to find out as much about you as I could. Does that interest you?"
She sat down; crossed her legs. O'Day noticed her slender ankles in their perfectly fitting nylons.
