THE MAN THEY COULDN'T ARREST

" Good for you. Warn Mr. Dain not to leave the house till I get there."
" Valmon Dain absconded soon after midnight last night," said Shaughnessy blandly.
" Hell!" said Delbury. " Quick ! Get the net out ! "
Delbury was eager, imperative. It wasn't so much that he had landed full tilt into a particularly puzzling murder, but that he felt himself at last getting some sort of a clue to the identity of the exasperating man of mystery who for months had been making his life a misery to him. Detectives have their pride, like any other skilled craftsmen, and the utter anonymity of the Ghost had galled him beyond endurance ; his complete inability to produce even a theory as to how it was done was to him a daily, almost hourly, meal of wormwood.
He felt himself a puppet, dangled on the end of a set of strings by a master mind who used him for a plaything, an amusing little toy, harmless but vastly entertaining, and highly necessary for the rest of his little diversion.
But here, in this Hendon affair, he felt himself getting nearer to the bone. Here was something he could get his teeth into ; some really definite clue. For the first time on record the card had arrived too late for anything to be done about it. And, also for the first time on record, the sender had deliberately refrained from allowing it to get there in time.
