She nodded.
" Then they'll find out whose it is, won't they? They'll find it's yours. They'll want to know when you lost it; whether you've reported the loss. They'll want to know all sorts of things. Well, you hadn't lost it yesterday. You were wearing it yesterday afternoon and somehow, between the time I left you and the time I saw Vanner, that bracelet had got from Mallowfield, Sussex, to a back room in the Palissade Club near Maidenhead. And it didn't walk!"
She said: "Well, Mr. O'Day . . . ?"
" It isn't well. Would you like to talk to me about the bracelet?"
There was a silence for a moment; then she said: "Supposing I don't want to?"
" You don't have to," said O'Day. "I've no authority or power to make you talk. I'm merely returning the bracelet to you."
He got up; walked across to her; dropped it in her lap. "You see the spot I'm in if you don't talk. If they try to pin this thing on me and," he added, "they've got some excellent circumstantial evidence, you know, and it's no good saying that it is only circumstantial evidence. Plenty of people have been hanged on circumstantial evidence before now. The point is if I produced the story of that bracelet, or if I -instead of giving the bracelet back to you-had kept it, I'd draw a red herring across this circumstantial evidence. The police would be forced to concentrate on someone else. They'd know that at least somebody else was there and if they knew that somebody else was there they wouldn't be quite so keen on trying to pin this thing on me. You understand that?"
