LAURETTA

She said: "I understand. Are you suggesting that I was at this club last night?"
" I'm not suggesting anything. All I'm saying is that I'm in a spot, and you might like to tell me something that would help me." He smiled at her. "I wanted to help you, you know, even if I was paid for it. Would you like to return the compliment?"
She sat back in the chair. He noted with admiration that she was still quite relaxed.
She said: "I don't know what I want to do, Mr. O'Day. I don't know. I think I shall have to consider it."
" Well, that's that," said O'Day. "There's your bracelet, Mrs. Deane, and I'm very glad to have been able to return it to you." He took out his note-case; extracted a card. "There's my address-my private address-and my 'phone number. Maybe you might feel like talking to me some time. If you do you'll know where to find me."
He walked to the door.
She got up. She said quickly: "Mr. O'Day ... why have you returned the bracelet if it's going to be of such use to you? Why don't you keep it?"
" If I'd any sense I ought to, but I'm thinking of two things. I'm thinking of Nicky Needham, for whom I'm working whether he's here or not. Nicky paid me seven hundred and fifty pounds to keep an eye on you because he was afraid for you-why I don't know. I don't think I'd be doing a hell of a good job if I turned this bracelet in to the police at this moment in order to get myself out of what looks like a jam. That's one reason."
She asked: "And the other?"
