THE MAN THEY COULDN'T ARREST

had an appointment to keep at ten o'clock in Court Row.
He smiled grimly when he thought of that appointment. Count Lazard had had his pride ripped and torn to tatters at that first electric meeting with Dain, and there was going to be a most magnificent reckoning to pay. Lazard would not lie down under such a hammering as he had received.
Dain knew the odds to a wisp of gossamer. He had sampled his adversary's steel-and he was unalarmed. If would be a fight, a fight worth every second and every effort of it ; but at the end, when the curtain came hissing down, it would see Count Lazard a limp heap in the middle of the arena, with the police net closing in around him. . On that score Dain had not the smallest misgiving.
He worked up and down his lines of humming wires, plugging in, testing, straining his ears into the silent void.
Then, over in the far corner above the most powerful of his droning dynamos, a light began to wink, a tiny red light, scarce bigger than a pin-head thrown into sudden luminance. He crossed over to it and rammed in his key.
In a few minutes, after he had made long series of adjustments to the pitch of his dynamos, he caught the vagrant flutter of voices whispering eerily out of nowhere. One, quiet, orderly, precise, he recognised as the voice of Lazard speaking over the telephone to an unknown accomplice.
