"That seems to cut him out," I said thoughtfully. "And reduce the number of suspects-though, I suppose, he could still have got an accomplice to plant the acid tube." Then, suddenly, I had what was, for me, an inspiration. "Tell me, Miss Ross, did anyone ask you earlier in the evening when dinner would be?"

"Who were in the front two seats-those nearest the galley?"

"That seems to cut him out," I said thoughtfully. "And reduce the number of suspects-though, I suppose, he could still have got an accomplice to plant the acid tube." Then, suddenly, I had what was, for me, an inspiration. "Tell me, Miss Ross, did anyone ask you earlier in the evening when dinner would be?"

"Yes. They all seemed to crowd down past the middle-"

"Can you remember who went in there, say, any time up to an hour beforehand?"

"Who were in the front two seats-those nearest the galley?"

"All right." I changed my approach. "This was the men's washroom, I take it?"

"Yes. The powder room is on the port side."

"An hour? But the cigarette end-"

"Of course." She stared at me, wide-eyed.

She looked at me for a long moment before answering, and even in the fading light of the aurora I could see the understanding coming into her eyes.

"And you didn't think this worth mentioning to me," I said heavily. "No importance at all?"

"There way a funny smell-" she began slowly.

"You bet there was. Can you remember who went there?"

"Right. And we're dealing, obviously, with hardened professional criminals. The whole success of their plan depended on causing this excitement. Do you for a moment believe that they were going to let the whole thing hinge on the mere off-chance of a smouldering butt-end setting some papers alight-especially setting them alight at the correct moment?"

"I don't know. What-why do you ask?"

"Can you remember who went in there, say, any time up to an hour beforehand?"

"Can you remember who went in there, say, any time up to an hour beforehand?"

"An hour? But the cigarette end-"

"And you didn't think this worth mentioning to me," I said heavily. "No importance at all?"

"Yes. The powder room is on the port side."

"An hour? But the cigarette end-"

"I'm sorry," she repeated helplessly. "I was a little upset for a moment, then Captain Johnson was in front of me shooing everybody back to their seats and I couldn't see."

"Do you believe now that the fire was caused deliberately?" I asked.

"Right. And we're dealing, obviously, with hardened professional criminals. The whole success of their plan depended on causing this excitement. Do you for a moment believe that they were going to let the whole thing hinge on the mere off-chance of a smouldering butt-end setting some papers alight-especially setting them alight at the correct moment?"
