NEMESIS

Bale said: "Well, usually I don't discuss my clients' private affairs, but it looks to me as if Vanner's affairs aren't going to be private any more now he's dead. So I don't think I'm doing any harm if I tell you. He paid me to go down to some place in Sussex. He paid me to tail a woman down there; to find out what she was doing."
O'Day asked: "Did you find her? Did you discover what she was doing?"
Bale said: "Look, that's going a little too far, isn't it? I've told you what he asked me to do, but I don't think I ought to say any more. Maybe he wouldn't have liked it."
O'Day thought for a moment; then he said: "I think I understand your point of view. O.K. Thanks a lot." He hung up; went back to his car.
O'Day went back to his apartment at a quarter to eight. He turned on a musical programme softly on the radio; lighted a cigarette; began to walk about the sitting-room. He wondered what Dougal was at. He thought he knew the answer to that one. He thought he'd be receiving another visit from Dougal very shortly-maybe the next day or the day after that.
The house telephone rang. It was Simmons. "There's a Mrs. Deane to see you, sir."
" Ask her to come up," said O'Day.
He walked across the hallway; opened the front door. She was just about to ring the bell.
O'Day smiled. "Good evening, Mrs. Deane. Come in."
He took off her mink coat, threw it over the settee in the sitting-room. He took a long look at her.
