THE MAN THEY COULDN'T ARREST

" Yes. And all your crowd. It's our only chance. Dain must be got rid of to-night, or he will get rid of us."
" Right, Guv'nor. Eight of us. That enough?"
Lazard did not even answer. The light bobbed again, and Dain knew that the conversation was at an end.
He pulled off his headphones and, almost before he had time to put them on his bench, there came a sharp knocking at the door.
It came again, sharp and insistent. It set Valmon Dain's faculties working at lightning speed. Throughout his tenure of that office he had never once been called upon to receive a caller until Lazard himself ran his head into the noose. In his Landring Dent guise he had no occasion to expect visitors. He was down in the trade directory as an export merchant and that was all that was known about him.
Dain was torn between two desperate possibilities. If it were the police outside, his only hope of bluffing them was to remain in his commissionaire's disguise and act the part out to its last final letter. If it were Tansy, then he would be simply throwing away his advantage over Lazard, unless he showed himself as Landring Dent. If Tansy saw him rigged up as a unit of the Corps of Commissionaires, his secret would be humming over the wires five minutes after Tansy got out of Denbigh House.
The knocking came again, a little more softly.
