THE MAN THEY COULDN'T ARREST

queer-looking recess up in the wall above my chemical bench at Hendon? You remember it? Well, I had a small cinematograph camera placed in that recess. It was controlled by a miniature electric motor. I don't think one could possibly get more convincing evidence of one's innocence than by filming the actual incident, could one ? That's how it seemed to me, anyhow. You will see the whole thing, every movement made by both of us. If, at the end of it, you still think I could have done any more than I did to save my own skin, I will accompany you to the station with considerably less trouble than our friend the Ambassador. Just a moment-I will put it across on that wall."
The lights dimmed, and a faint luminance crept out at the far end. It grew stronger, focussed clearly on the green wall where once the great frames of wires had been. And for ten minutes without a sound they watched the photographic reproduction of that terrible midnight at Hendon. Step by step they followed the action, from the moment Dain switched on the camera to the final flicker of light and shadow. They saw Lyall enter, saw him crawl across and grab Dain's gun ; saw the efforts Dain made to make him go away ; they saw the passion that flamed in Lyall's face-and they saw the fatal trigger pulled. For the first time in criminal history, two detectives actually saw the crime in process of commission.
The lights went up. The two Yard men, looking very white and unnerved, picked up their hats.
