THE MAN THEY COULDN'T ARREST

" Good Lord ! Tansy," breathed Delbury. " So that's where he got the wire from. Miss Lyall, do you know that by answering that telephone you have let one of the worst criminals in London slip through our fingers ?"
" I wasn't aware of it, but I couldn't help it even if I did. But in what way does all this concern my father? I think I have answered quite enough of your questions. And really I cannot tax my anxiety any longer. Something has happened to dad. Something dreadful. I know it has. I knew it the moment I opened my eyes this morning. And if you won't tell me I shall ring up Mr. Dain and find out for myself."
" No, you won't, miss. Mr. Dain won't answer any phone calls from you or anyone else. I've learned all I want to know, thank you. There will be a warrant out for the arrest of Mr. Valmon Dain within an hour of my leaving this house."
" A warrant ? But, good Heavens, what on earth for?"
" Murder, miss. Just that-must I say anything more ?"
Mercia looked at him, standing there in front of her chair, cold and deadly, the very embodiment of the law in all its callous, brutal reality. In one horrified moment she held her gaze to his eyes, then, without a sound except a deep, heart-wrenching sigh, she relaxed in a limp heap in her chair.
Delbury went over quietly and rang the bell.
