THE MAN THEY COULDN'T ARREST

Nasty, trouble-huntin' eyes. Looks as though they'd eat you as soon as look at you."
Lyall started, and a quick look of apprehension shot across his face."
He took a morning picture-paper from his desk and opened it.
Valmon Dain's picture looked out at him from the centre page.
" Not-not him?" asked Lyall, breathing quickly.
Tansy jumped up excitedly. " Yes - that's him!" he cried.
Lyall's face drained as white as wood ashes, a sickly pallor that made him look like an old, sick man, bloodless and shaky beyond his years.
" You-you're sure about this ?" he asked stiffly.
He felt, even as he said it, the utter futility of such a question. He knew only too well that it could have been no one else. Dain, in trying to get him to go down to Brighton with him, had given himself away. To Willard Lyall, sardonic beyond the ability to see the horrible humour of it, it was like Mephistopheles trying to play the Good Samaritan.
" Sure? D'ye think I'd say it was him if it wasn't ?" Tansy was convincing, almost to the point of scoffing at unbelief.
He watched Lyall for a moment.
" You're a bit worried, ain't you ?" he asked pointedly.
