THE MAN THEY COULDN'T ARREST

Valmon Dain lived out at Hendon ! She felt her senses reeling.
" Speak to me," she pleaded. "What do you mean? You are hinting at something. Who was Mr. Lyall going to see last night ?"
" Lady, that ain't for me to say. I'm not letting myself in any deeper than I am already. Good-bye, lady. Forget I ever rang you up." There was an ominous click and a silence at the other end.
Mercia hung up her receiver and sat down heavily in a big armchair. Her brain was seething, a frothy flux of disjointed thoughts and dreads that whirled round in her head like chaff in a whirlwind. She was stunned and dazed, scarcely comprehending the enormity of the unknown caller's hints. The only thing she definitely realised was that something awful had happened to her father, and that the mystery man of Notting Hill knew all about it but would not say. There was something inexplicably shocking going on behind the scenes of which she was in sublime ignorance.
" My dear, what on earth is the matter ?"
She looked up with a start. Her mother, queenly and graceful, even in her undress, was standing in the doorway holding her dressing-gown over her breast with a white, perfectly moulded hand. " I heard the telephone ringing and then I heard your voice, dear. You were shouting the most extraordinary things. What, in heaven's sake, has happened ?"
