He looked at her strangely, almost as though she'd said something obscene.

'About it being an accident.'

'I read about it. Tragic.'

'Illusionist,' she said.

'And he was no miracle-worker?'

Harry wanted to say Swann would have been mad not to have done so, but the comment was inappropriate. She didn't want blandishments; didn't need them. Didn't need anything, perhaps, but her husband alive again.

'Oh yes. I lived with Swann seven and a half years, and I got to understand him as well as anybody ever could. I learned to sense when he wanted me around, and when he didn't. When he didn't, I'd take myself off somewhere and let him have his privacy. Genius needs privacy. And he was a genius, you know. The greatest illusionist since Houdini.'

'The letter,' she repeated.

Valentin had appeared with a glass of milk. He set it down on the table in front of Harry. As he made to leave, she said: 'Valentin. The letter?'

'About it being an accident.'

'I read about it. Tragic.'

'Oh yes. I lived with Swann seven and a half years, and I got to understand him as well as anybody ever could. I learned to sense when he wanted me around, and when he didn't. When he didn't, I'd take myself off somewhere and let him have his privacy. Genius needs privacy. And he was a genius, you know. The greatest illusionist since Houdini.'

'Now I think I didn't know him at all,' she went on, 'didn't understand him. I think maybe it was another trick. Another part of his magic.'

'Maybe,' she replied, nodding. 'Perhaps what happened to Swann would have happened anyway, wherever we'd been. People keep telling me: it was an accident. That's all. Just an accident.'

'We were only over for three months, while his show ran. We were going back in September . . .'

'I called him a magician a while back,' Harry said. 'You corrected me.'

He turned on his heel and made a smart withdrawal.

'And he was no miracle-worker?'

'Did you ever see his performance?'

'He's grief-stricken,' she said. 'Forgive him his behaviour. He was with Swann from the beginning of his career. I think he loved my husband as much as I did.'

'I'd think sometimes-it was a kind of miracle that he let me into his life . . .'

He turned on his heel and made a smart withdrawal.

'So I did,' she said, conceding his point with an apologetic look. 'Forgive me. That was Swann talking. He hated to be called a magician. He said that was a word that had to be kept for miracle-workers.'

'Is this wise?' he said.

'Don't blame New York,' he said. 'It can't help itself.'
