I want to get a line on that woman.
The printer had a small stall between skyscrapers, adjacent to another stall which dispensed orange drinks. An oblong glass frame contained samples of the various types of printing. A placard announced that cards and stationery were printed while the customer waited.
Perry Mason stared speculatively at the glass oblong, his manner that of one who is debating whether to download or not to download. The man behind the short counter leaned forward.
It will fool even an expert. The man's ink-smeared forefinger indicated a schedule of samples and prices. Mason took a bill from his pocket, indicated one of the cards. Montaine, one twenty-eight East Pelton Avenue. He crossed to a drug store, telephoned his office, learned that Della had received no message as yet from Rhoda Montaine.
He sat at the counter, sipped a chocolate malted milk meditatively, and let minutes slip by unnoticed. At length he crossed the street to the printer, and received the stack of freshly printed cards. He returned to the drug store called his office again. The address was Chicago, Illinois; but there's a water and gas connection for a Carl W. Montaine at twentythree hundred nine Hawthorne Avenue.
It was made within the last week. The license said she was a widow - Rhoda Lorton. Drake wants to know how strong you want him to go on expenses. I've apparently accepted a retainer to represent a client.
I'm going to represent her. After all, it wasn't your fault. You didn't know about the retainer. Anyhow, I'm going to see this thing through. Drake's got about all the official information he can get for tonight. He expects to hear before five.
If this girl calls in, be sure to hold her. Tell her we know her real name and address. That will bring her in. The number that Rhoda Montaine left for us to call when she was in the office is Drenton six-eight-nine-four-two. She just took the last two numbers off of Nell Brinley's telephone number and put them on the front part of the number. That must mean that she's pretty familiar with that telephone number, because she rattled it off when I asked her. She must have lived at that address and used that telephone before she was married.
Approaching the counter, Perry Mason pulled a telegraph blank toward him, took a pencil from his pocket, spread the purloined telegram flat on the counter and frowned. He looked up and caught the eye of an attendant. She came to him, and Mason pulled one of the freshly printed cards from his pocket.
Montaine, what can we do for you? I understand your company requires the senders to leave their addresses on file in connection with any wire sent.
There's some key number on this telegram. I am wondering if you can find the address of the sender by taking this key number and running down your records?
Montaine," and waited for the clerk to return. She returned within less than five minutes with the name and address of the sender written on the message in a pencil notation.
Mason studied the notation for a moment, nodded, and wrote the name "Moxley" after the word "Gregory," added below it "Colemont Apartments, Norwalk Avenue. He leaned back in the cushions, lit a cigarette and watched the passing scenery with thoughtslitted eyes.
By the time the cigarette was consumed, the cab pulled in at the curb. The Colemont Apartments was a huge two-story building that had at one time been a residence. As the small numbered blocks of Norwalk Avenue had become choice apartment sites, the owners had remodeled the huge residence into four apartments. Perry Mason noticed that three of the apartments, apparently, were vacant. The influx of more modern apartment houses on either side had spelled disaster for the made-over private residence.
In a short time it would be torn down to make way, in turn, for a larger apartment. Mason pressed the button on Apartment B, opposite the pasteboard slip on which appeared the words "Gregory Moxley. A long flight of stairs loomed ahead of him. He climbed the stairs, heard the sound of motion in the corridor and then nodded to a man whose figure loomed at the head of the stairs.
The man was some thirty-six years of age, with quick, watchful eyes, a ready smile, and a genial manner. Despite the heat of the day, his clothes were flawless and he wore them with distinction. He emanated an atmosphere of physical well-being and prosperity.
I was expecting a visitor who had an appointment with me. For a swift instant the man stiffened as though bracing himself for a blow. Then the booming geniality was once more apparent in his voice. Come on up, come in and sit down. What's your name?
Come on in. Certainly is hot, isn't it? The room was comfortably furnished, although the furniture was rather old-fashioned. The windows were open. Across fifteen feet of space loomed the side of a modern apartment house. Mason sat down, crossed his legs, reached mechanically for his cigarette case. Moxley gave it a frowning glance of annoyance.
On days like this it makes an oven out of my apartment. It was the grin of one who has learned to take the world philosophically, accepting the bitter as well as the sweet. Personally, I don't like it.
I like small apartment houses. I don't like these big places where there's a manager constantly snooping around, and an air of impersonal efficiency. Moxley's laugh was quick and contagious. Mason joined in his laugh.
I didn't suppose you had Moxley frowned, looked at Perry Mason. Moxley seemed undecided. The smile faded from his face. The look of genial urbanity vanished. His eyes hardened into speculative appraisal.
The lines of his face were grim. He got up from his chair without a word of excuse, walked on noiseless feet to the doorway, and stood where he could see both the corridor and Perry Mason. The bell rang again. Moxley pressed a button, and stood waiting while an electric buzzer released the door catch.
Perry Mason 7 The Case of the Counterfeit Eye
There were steps on the stairs, a rustle of paper, then steps going down the stairs and the slamming of the front door.
Moxley walked back to the room, tearing the envelope open. He unfolded the message, read it, then looked suspiciously at Perry Mason.
His eyes were hard and watchful. Rhoda didn't retain me. Rhoda didn't know that I was coming. Moxley's laugh was sneering. The ready friendliness of his manner had evaporated into a cold, watchful hostility.
Something happened which caused me to interest myself in Rhoda. It doesn't make any difference what it was. Unfortunately, I can't get in touch with Rhoda. I knew you were in touch with her. Therefore, I decided to get in touch with you.
I want you to tell me where I can find Rhoda. His right hand had left the knob of the drawer, but seemed to be held in poised readiness. The first name of the former husband was Gregory. If, for instance, the man she married hadn't really died, but had only disappeared for the statutory period of seven years. That makes a presumption of death. It's only a presumption. If the man showed up, alive and well, he'd still be her husband. Moxley wet his lips with the tip of his tongue, hesitated for several seconds, then walked warily around Mason to the telephone.
He picked up the receiver with his left hand, clamped the last two fingers of the hand against the rubber mouthpiece, raised the receiver to his ear, the telephone to his lips. The receiver made rasping, metallic noises. I tell you, not now You should know who the visitor is I say you should. I'm not mentioning any names, but you can draw your own conclusions He's a lawyer.
His name is Mason. Moxley's face twisted with rage. He doubled his right hand into a fist, shouted, "Get back! Moxley grabbed the telephone in his right hand, the receiver in his left, started to hang up.
His face twisted into a snarl of hatred. Moxley came to the head of the stairs, stood staring with silent hostility at the broad shoulders of the departing attorney. Mason slammed the front door shut, stepped into his cab, drove three blocks to a drug store and telephoned Della Street.
The attending physician was Dr. Claude Millsap. He signed the death certificate. Millsap live? Drake wants to know how much work you want him to do. In fact, it would be very inadvisable, because Moxley has got a brittle disposition and I don't know just what his tie-up in the case is. Perry Mason left the telephone and approached the drug counter. The clerk studied him for a moment. It induces sleep, not a drugged sleep, but a restful slumber. In proper doses there's no after effect. I told you, it induces a natural, restful and deep slumber.
Can I? He emerged from the drug store whistling light-heartedly. The cab driver jumped to the sidewalk, opened the door of the cab. Perry Mason frowned speculatively, as though weighing two possible plans of campaign in his mind.
Three blocks down the street a car swung into Norwalk Avenue, the body swaying far over on the springs with the momentum of the turn. Mason's eyes focused on it, and the eyes of the cab driver followed those of Mason.
Abruptly, Mason stepped from the curb, held up his hand. The Chevrolet swerved toward the curb. Tires protested as brakes were applied.
Rhoda Montaine's flushed face stared at Perry Mason. The car jerked to a dead stop. The lawyer's first words were as casual as though he had been expecting her. I started back after it, and then decided to let it go.
I figured you'd open it and ask a lot of questions. I didn't want to answer them. What were you doing at Gregory's? Mason jerked open the door of the car, climbed in beside Rhoda Montaine and grinned at her. When I found out about it, I did what I could to help you. As soon as I knew you were there, I started to drive out as quickly as I could.
You've spilled the beans now. I telephoned him, to tell him that he'd have to wait until later. Why won't you tell me now? I've been trying to get in touch with you all day. It's seven years in some cases, five in others. Montaine," he said, "but that's only a presumption. If Gregory Moxley is really Gregory Lorton, your first husband, and he showed up alive and well, your marriage to Carl Montaine is voidable. Slow tears welled up in them. Her lips quivered. Perry Mason's hand dropped to her shoulder, patted it reassuringly.
It was the impersonal gesture of the protective male. No man would understand. I can't even understand, myself. I nursed him when he was sick. He had a drug habit and his folks would have died if they'd known. I'm a trained nurse, you know - that is, I was. It happened when I was just a kid - young, innocent and impressionable.
