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

"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?"

"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?"

"It's no good." She shook her head. "I was in the galley most of the time, getting the meal ready."

"Easy. You can get a little plastic tube with a central composition shield dividing it into two compartments. In one compartment you have a free acid, in the other a different acid enclosed in a glass tube. All you have to do is to crush the tube, break the glass, drop the tube in your chosen spot, walk away and after a predetermined time the acid that was in the glass eats through the shield, meets the other acid and starts a fire. It's been used hundreds of times, especially in war-time sabotage. If you're an arsonist looking for a cast-iron alibi and want to be five miles away when the fire starts, it's the perfect answer."

"Quite sure. I always peek through the cabin door from time to time, and he was always there."

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

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

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

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

"Mrs Dansby-Gregg did, I'm sure."

"Are you sure?"

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

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

"Miss LeGarde and Mr Corazzini. And I'm afraid that's not much help. We know Marie LeGarde can't have had anything to do with it. And Mr Corazzini is the one person I'm sure didn't leave his seat before dinner. He had a gin soon after take-off, then switched off his reading light, draped a newspaper over his head and went to sleep."

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

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

"It doesn't matter. Who could have gone into the galley then -anybody in the front seats, I suppose?"

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

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.

"They? Who were 'They'?"

"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?"

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