THE MAN THEY COULDN'T ARREST

fumbling urgently with the clutch ; a pound fare did not come his way every day, and he was eager to justify the handsome tip.
Dain, with one lightning snatch of his arms, swept off his overcoat and flung it on the back seat. Then, without pausing a moment, he opened the opposite door and stepped out on the kerb by the fruit-barrow. In almost the same action he closed the door again. The whole thing was done with such agility and with such silent speed that the driver never even suspected that his fare was not still in his cab.
The Flying Squad van was sixty or seventy yards in the rear, and going like steam when the cab drew clear. The watchers behind the chocolate tarpaulin - had no possible chance of seeing what had happened in that cab. The taxi was between them and the kerb, an effective barrier in their line of vision. All they saw was their man bolting into the cab.
The taxi put on speed, and as the big Crossley swished past all they saw was a fruit-barrow standing in the gutter, at which a man in a well-fitting lounge suit was nonchalantly buying a couple of bananas.
The officer in charge jumped to the wireless apparatus. " Hallo ! Headquarters !" he called hurriedly. " Get this down quick ! K. Van speaking. It's Dain all right. He's bolted. Either he has recognised us or he's taken a sudden fright. Anyway, he has chartered a taxi and is lighting out towards Highgate as though half the devils in hell
