"What did you sell Steelgrave for the grand?"

"Leila told him," she said in a faraway voice.

"You had one thing to sell," I said. "You knew where Orrin was. To Steelgrave that information was worth a grand. Easy. It's a question of connecting up evidence. You wouldn't understand. Steelgrave went down there and killed him. He paid you the money for the address."

"A cheap shyster," I said. "Well, what would you expect. I don't have any brothers or sisters to sell out. So I sell out my clients."

The telephone rang and she jumped a foot. I turned and reached for it and put my face against it and said, "Hello."

I didn't say anything. I relit my pipe.

I didn't say anything. I relit my pipe.

"I never thought you were a crook," she said with dignity.

She stopped dead, frozen in a kind of horror. I started to tear the pictures up into strips. I grinned at her.

She stood rigid and glaring. I finished my tearing-up job and lit the scraps of paper in the tray.

I was still holding the packet of photos. I struck a match and dropped the negative into the ash tray and watched it flare up.

Her mouth fell open and she looked ugly. She closed her lips and pressed them together. It was a tight hard little face that I was looking at.

"I could tell them who shot Steelgrave," I said. "Because I know who didn't. They might believe me."

"One thing I regret," I said. "Not seeing your meeting back in Manhattan, Kansas, with dear old Mom. Not seeing the fight over how to split that grand. I bet that would be something to watch."

"I could tell the police," she whispered. "I could tell them a lot of things. They'd believe me."

"Amigo, are you all right?"

There was a sound in the background. I swung around and saw the door click shut. I was alone in the room.

The small head jerked up. The light glinted on the glasses. There were no eyes behind them.

She stood away from the chair and took a couple of steps backward. Then suddenly she giggled.

"Leila told him," she said in a faraway voice.
