THE MAN THEY COULDN'T ARREST

the mere presence of that departing safeguard told him that the bolts were not drawn. Tansy had simply stuffed the cotton into the lock and then slammed the door to.
He cleared out the last of the thread, fitted another skeleton key, and turned it. The lock opened easily and silently. Delbury went in and found himself in the little front shop. It was obvious that the jewellery display was merely a blind. The stuff was mostly second-hand, and what was not was cheap, tawdry stuff priced up at about ten grades above its worth-the type of stuff that can be guaranteed never to attract a customer from one week's end to another. There were even a couple of show-cases of cheap electro-plate ticketed for price at the cost of real silver.
Delbury poked around and found the electriclight switch. He needed light badly, for the front shutters were still up and a murky gloom pervaded the place inside.
Across in the corner, fronting the window, was another very delightful bit of camouflage. It was a little glass-panelled bay, fitted out as a watchrepairer's bench. All the tools of the trade were set out in small racks round about, and various component parts of watches were tucked away under the bowls of broken wine-glasses in quite the approved style. Passers-by glancing in might have passed that way for year after year and never noticed the bluff.
