THE MAN THEY COULDN'T ARREST

workshop polishing up his last details. He gave orders to his servants to lock up the house and retire, as he would be working until far into the night, if not all night. His last order was that on no account was he to be disturbed, not even though an imperative message came through from Miss Lyall or anyone else at Greydene. Valmon Dain was out to all callers.
Then he switched on every light in the room, arc after arc, until the whole place swam in a sea of blinding white light, as fierce and stark as the intensive lighting of a kinema studio.
On his desk was a tiny square box with two small glass discs let into the lid. They were fixed and inanimate, like the unwinking eyes of an owl. One of the discs was white, the other red. He connected a terminal in the box to a delicate thin wire that ran under the carpet to the door. Above it he arranged a scattering of papers, so that only the tell-tale discs were exposed.
He went over to the door and touched it. He was wearing thick rubber gloves, but the moment his hands touched the woodwork the white disc leapt to light. Coincident with it a low humming began in the wall immediately opposite. Nothing could be seen to account for it : there was no movement anywhere, nothing but the suddenly illuminated disc and the suppressed hum, vague and indistinct, that seemed to emanate from the opposite end of the room.
