NEMESIS

O'Day got up. He turned and saw Dougal and the other two men in the doorway.
Pavin laughed. He said almost with indifference: "Well ... gentlemen ... this is a case of hail and farewell." He put the barrel of the pistol in his mouth; pulled the trigger.
Dougal regarded his glass of whisky and soda. He said: "You took a hell of a chance, O'Day. If that girl Mabel Bonaventura hadn't got the wind up and come down to the Yard and told me that you were going to Eastbourne this afternoon you'd probably be dead. I knew you'd got that letter from Merys Vanner. I thought you wanted it to make a deal with someone. I thought that someone would be Vanner's murderer. Really, I suppose, I ought to charge you with withholding information from the police."
He drank the whisky and soda. Then: "I suppose you didn't tell the girl Bonaventura to come and talk to me ... did you?"
O'Day grinned. "I'm afraid I did. I knew what Pavin would do when I arrived. I knew you'd put a tail on me. I knew you'd be around. I wanted you to hear what he had to say. I'm very glad you were here."
Dougal picked up his hat and carefully rolled umbrella. "I knew I was being made use of," he said solemnly. "Well ... good night, O'Day. You'd better come and see me at the Yard to-morrow. We'll clean up all the details."
O'Day said: "What about Merys Vanner?"

NEMESIS

Dougal shrugged his shoulders. "She ought to hang. But juries don't like hanging women-not unless they have to. But if she says that she didn't know what Pavin intended to do; that she didn't know he was going to the Palissade Club last Thursday ... well, maybe she'll get away with it. Personally, I hope she doesn't."
He went out of the bar.
