THE MAN THEY COULDN'T ARREST

In a few seconds the answer came through. " That call originated from a public call-box in a Kingsway hotel."
" Damn!" said Delbury savagely. "Lost him again. This house seems to be haunted with bad luck for me."
Mercia touched his arm. She was looking straight into his eyes, a calm, steady look that was almost pathetic in its appeal for truth.
" Mr. Delbury, what did Mr. Dain mean when he said that daddy went to his house to murder him -for a particular reason ? Why wouldn't he tell me what that reason was ? What did he mean when he said the shock would be even greater than the news of his death ? I want to know. You know-and you are hiding it from us. We both have a perfect right to know, and I, at least, demand to be told-now ! "
Delbury returned Mercia's gaze with something that amounted to a glint of warning in his eyes.
" Miss Lyall," he said, very deliberately, "you would not like me to tell you the reason for Valmon Dain's silence. And I, personally, have no wish to broach the matter when so many of the essential facts are still hidden behind the blackest of fogs. For all I know the entire police case may be at fault-as things are shaping now, indeed, it almost looks as though the whole of our theories are founded on erroneous supposition. Only time can show that."
