"Somebody's counting on that. It's the easiest way to fool them. That or the police. Geiger can collect on these notes, unless you can show fraud. Instead of that he makes you a present of them and admits they are gambling debts, which gives you a defense, even if he had kept the notes. If he's a crook, he knows his onions, and if he's an honest man doing a little loan business on the side, he ought to have his money. Who was this Joe Brody you paid the five thousand dollars to?"

"Who told her anything about my visit?"

"I get twenty-five a day and expenses-when I'm lucky."

"I get twenty-five a day and expenses-when I'm lucky."

He looked puzzled, then he smiled. "Ah, I see, sir. You are, of course, a detective. By the way he rang his bell."

"Her windows command the greenhouse. She saw us go in. I was obliged to tell her who you were."

"I mean it might be cheaper and easier to stand for a certain amount of squeeze. That's all."

"I'll take him out," I said. "He'll think a bridge fell on him."

"Some kind of gambler. I hardly recall. Norris would know. My butler."

"I see." He shrugged his wide sharp shoulders in the faded red bathrobe. "A moment ago you said pay him. Now you say it won't get me anything."

His blue eyes gave me a smooth level look. "She has a misconception of the purpose of your visit, sir."

I finished my second drink and wiped my lips and my face. The heat didn't get any less hot with the brandy in me. The General blinked at me and plucked at the edge of his rug.

He stopped about two feet from me and said gravely: "Mrs. Regan would like to see you before you leave, sir. And in the matter of money the General has instructed me to give you a check for whatever seems desirable."

"Her windows command the greenhouse. She saw us go in. I was obliged to tell her who you were."

"It's a question of a little money against a lot of annoyance. There has to be something behind it. But nobody's going to break your heart, if it hasn't been done already. And it would take an awful lot of chiselers an awful lot of time to rob you of enough so that you'd even notice it."

"I'm afraid I'm rather an impatient man, Mr. Marlowe. What are your charges?"

"Can I make a deal with this guy, if I think he's within hooting distance of being on the level?"

"I'm afraid I'm rather an impatient man, Mr. Marlowe. What are your charges?"

"I'm sure you will. And now I must excuse myself. I am tired." He reached out and touched the bell on the arm of his chair. The cord was plugged into a black cable that wound along the side of the deep dark green boxes in which the orchids grew and festered. He closed his eyes, opened them again in a brief bright stare, and settled back among his cushions. The lids dropped again and he didn't pay any more attention to me.
