NEMESIS

"A fisherman called Dougal. You know, that policeman's quite an astute person. He's been discovering all sorts of things, Merys."
She asked in a dull voice: "What things?"
" Well, one of them's very interesting," said O'Day. "Needham left a letter at my office with some money inside it. Somebody burned the letter and took the money. That's what I thought at first. I thought that Ralph had had the money and burned the letter to annoy me. And that was that. In point of fact a note was left in my drawer-typed, with the initials `R.V.' on it-to tell me he'd done so."
She asked: "Do you blame him? And Ralph did go into the office that Saturday morning. I saw him. . . ."
O'Day interrupted. "That's as maybe. The point is Dougal's checked on the ashes that were left on the ash-tray-the cleaner had just emptied the ash-tray into the basket; she didn't clean it. He's discovered that the ashes on the ash-tray didn't come from the paper on which Needham wrote his letter."
She said: "So what ... ?"
" It means," went on O'Day, "that somebody kept the letter. I've always been curious as to what was in that letter. It must have been something quite important. It must have been damned important for Nicky Needham to pay seven hundred and fifty pounds for me to do what he wanted done-the things he'd told me in that letter."
She repeated in a dull voice: "So what?"
" Just this. I want the letter. Give it to me, Merys."
She brought her hand down from the mantelpiece.
