THE MAN THEY COULDN'T ARREST

He had altered every single opinion he had ever held regarding Mercia Lyall during the short ten minutes of that interview.
Mercia, throughout that cross-examination, had spoken nothing but the truth. She had spoken it innocently, frankly, sometimes disarmingly. And the only fact that emerged from the chaos of jumbled thoughts in the detective's mind was that he was still as far from a solution to the murder of Willard Lyall as ever he was. If anything, his case had become even more complicated.
A servant appeared, one of the maids, with her head wrapped in a dusting-sheet. It was evidently "turning-out." day at Greydene.
Mercia was in the armchair just behind the door. The maid could not see her. She paused in the doorway in slight surprise. Apparently the maid who had let him in had not dared to spread the news through Greydene that a Scotland Yard man was in the house.
" Will you please ask your mistress to see me for a moment?" asked Delbury. The maid gave a half-scared peep inside the door and saw Mercia sitting in the chair like a dead thing, her face white as chalk and her eyes staring dully ahead in a vacancy of horror and unbelief.
The maid nodded and hurried out.
In a few moments Mrs. Lyall appeared. She had been waiting for the summons to the library. She bowed slightly as she came in.
