THE MAN THEY COULDN'T ARREST

the more expensive floors below. He crawled stealthily along and listened cautiously at each door. All was silent as the tomb. He waited till his breathing was normal again, and then directed the beam of his torch down the passage. It flickered over the numbers, a thin pencil of light that licked into the Stygian gloom like the ray of a miniature searchlight.
He found Dent's right at the very end, an unpretentious-looking apartment, with a plain painted door. There were two glass panels in it, but they had been felted over from the inside. A little strip of wood, let into a slot, informed him that Mr. Landring Dent was "Out."
He leaned back against the wall and took stock of his surroundings. The passage was a cul-de-sac, with the entrance to Dent's office at the far end of it. The only way of escape lay back along the way he had come. He sent a ray of light stabbing up at the ceiling. And a thin smile creased the corners of his mouth.
Immediately outside the door of No. 6 was a square black opening in the uniform white of the ceiling. It was the fire escape, the emergency exit to the roof. The beam crept slowly, along the edges of the woodwork. There were hundreds of scratches on the edge opposite to the hinges. That trapdoor had been used pretty frequently of late-far more frequently than is usual in the average block
of offices.
