“What was she doing?”
“You’d better ask her yourself,” said the other with some asperity. “I tell you, colonel, I can’t handle that woman.”
“Nobody ever thought you could nike air max 90 ,” said the colonel. “Did she give you any idea as to what her business was?”
Pinto shook his head and the colonel paced the big room thoughtfully, his big hands in his pockets.
“Here’s a situation,” he said. “There’s some outsider who’s following every movement we make, who knew that boob from Huddersfield was coming, and who knew what our business was. That somebody was this infernal Jack o’ Judgment, but who is Jack o’ Judgment, hey?”
He looked round fiercely.
“I’ll tell you who he is,” he nike air max classic went on, speaking slowly “He’s somebody who knows our gang as cheap nike air max well as we know it ourselves, somebody who has been on the inside, somebody who has access, or who has had access, to our working methods. In fact,” he said using his pet phrase, “a business associate.”
“Rubbish!” said Pinto.
This polished man of Portugal, who had come into the gang very late in the day, was one of the few people who were privileged to offer blunt opposition to the leader of the Boundary Gang.
” cheap nike air max You might as well say it is I, or that it is Crewe, or Dempsey, or Selby—-”
“Or White,” said the colonel slowly; “don’t forget White.”
They stared at him.
“What do you mean?” asked Crewe with a frown.
White had been a favourite of his.
“How could it be White?”
“Why shouldn’t it be White?” said the colonel. “When did Jack o’ Judgment make his first cheap air max appearance? I’ll tell you. About the time we started getting busy framing up something against White. Did we ever see him when White was with us–no! Isn’t it obviously som nike air max sale ebody who has been a business associate and knows our little ways? Why, of course it is. Tell me somebody else?
“You don’t suggest it is ‘Snow’ Gregory, anyway?” he added sarcastically.
Crewe shivered and half-closed his eyes.
“For heaven’s sake don’t mention ‘Snow’ Gregory,” he said irritably.
“Why should cheap nike air max n’t I?” snarled the colonel. “He’s worth money and life and liberty to us, Crewe. He’s an awful example that keeps some of our business associates on the straight path. Not,” he added with elaborate care, “not that we were in any way responsible for his untimely end. But he died–providentially. A doper’s bad enough, but a doper who talks and boast nike air max s and tells me, as he told me in this very room, just where he’d put me, is a mighty dangerous man, Crewe.”
“Did he do that?” asked Crewe with interest.
The colonel nodded.
“In this very room where you’re standing,” he said impre nike air max 90 sale ssively, “at the end of that table he stood, all lit up with ‘coco’ and he told me things about our organisation that I thought nobody knew but myself. That’s the worst of drugs,” he said, shaking his head reprovingly; “you never know how clever they’ll nike air max 1 make a man, and they made ‘Snow’ a bit too clever. I’m not saying that I regretted his death–far from it. I don’t know how he got mixed up in the affair—-”
“Oh, shut up!” growled Pinto; “why go on acting before us? We were all in it.”
“Hush!” said the colonel with a glance at the door.
There was a silence. All eyes were fixed on the door.
“Did you hear anything?” asked the colonel under his breath.
His face was a shade paler than they had ever remembered seeing it.
“It is nothing,” said Pinto; “that fellow’s got on your nerves.”
The colonel walked to the sideboard and poured out a generous portion of whisky and drank it at a g nike air max ulp.
“Lots of things are getting on my nerves, nike air max 95 ” he said, “but nothing gets on my nerves so much as losing money. Crewe, we’ve got to go after that Yorkshireman again–at least somebody has got cheap nike air max trainers to go after him.”
“And that somebody is not going to be me,” said Crewe quietly. “I did my part of the business. Let Pinto have a cut.”
Pinto Silva shook his head. ③
