Ronald Frederick is a very wary man who has his murders skilfully planned. He is well aware of the dangers of carelessness, but he has a curious way of earning a living, taking advantage of his wife’s fortune when they were killed. Anyway, he considers himself more intelligent than any other people in the world.
He had persuaded three women to marry him and then to will him their modestpossessions.
Each of his former wives had been shy. He was carefully to choose the right type because he felt that his success depend on it. Mary was the first. She had a fatal accident when they were in their honeymoon. A reporter wrote in a local newspaper the nearness of the tragedy but the neighbours were scarcely curious.
Dorothy was the second. She bothered him a little more. In their first metshe revealed him that she was alone but after the funeral her brother appeared asking awkward questions.
It had taken place four years ago. Nowadays he had a new name and a fresh area to operate. That’s why he felt remarkably safe.
His actually wife was called Edyth. She was forty three years old and, after her father´s death, she was totally alone and well off. She appeared like a ship without arudder.
They had married five weeks after their first met in the registry office of the town where they were both strangers. He felt sorry for her but he was above of all and he started to make plans for “her future”.
Edyth had an obstinate reticence over her monetary affairs. She kept all her business papers locked in an old-writing case, and she had an embarrassing interest in his job. She wasalways telling him that she needed to visit his factory. That made Ronald felt angry and decided to act.
When she returned home after a hard day, he prepared her a bath because he wanted to go out with the most fascinating and elegant woman in the town. She was a bit shocked when his husband said that but she went upstairs and started writing a note and a phone call before going to the bath.
Hehad been in the bathroom for many hours and had hidden a socket under the foam. There were roses on the ground and if was impossible to see anything because the steam didn’t allow it.
When she was already prepared she invited him to go with her but he refused. She entered in the bathroom and she locked. He waited for some minutes to turn on the fuse box which was in another room. After that, hecame back and shouted Edyth. He didn’t find an answer so he went straight to the bedroom and opened her leather box. Inside there were certificates, bank notes and envelopes.
Ronald hoped to find out a great sum of money but, a week ago, Edyth had taken out all her pounds. He tore through them hastily, forgetting all caution in his anxiety. Suddenly he found a sheet which has been writing alittle time before and said:
Dear Ronald, if you ever get this, I am afraid it can cause you a dreadful shock. Your behaviour forced me to face some unpleasant possibilities. I didn’t want to suspect you but your predecessor, James Joseph and his brides are not entirely forgotten.
For a long time I though I was in love with you but when you persuaded me to make my will on our wedding day I could nothelp wondering. As soon as you started fussing about the bathroom I considered I had to do something quickly so I went to the police. Have you notice that many people have moved in to the house next door and they have never tried to speak to you?
They talked me about the fatal accidents in bathrooms and the inspector suggested me not to leave the house. If you should ever chase me, you will findthat I have gone out over the roof and I’m sitting in my dressing gown in the kitchen next door.
As he raised his eyes he heard heavy footsteps raced through the hall and went upstairs towards him.
