Irwin.What Irwin Irwin Fletcher People call me Fletch.Irwin Fletcher, I have a proposition to make to you I will give you a thousand dollars for just listening to it If you decide to reject the proposition, you take the thousand dollars, go away, and never tell anyone we talked Fair enough Is it criminal I mean, what you want me to do Of course.Fair enough For a thousand bucks I can listen What do you want me to do I want you to murder me.The black shoes tainted with sand came across the oriental rug The man took an envelope from an inside pocket of his suit jacket and dropped it into Fletch s lap Inside were ten one hundred dollar bills.The man had returned the second day to the sea wall to watch Fletch Only thirty yards away, he used binoculars.The third day, he met Fletch at the beer stand.I want you to come with me.Why I want to make you an offer.I m not that way.Neither am I There s a job I might like to have you do for me.Why can t we talk here This is a very special job.Where are we going To my house I ll want you to know where it is Do you have any clothes on the beach Just a shirt.Get it My car is a gray Jaguar XKE, parked at the curb I will be waiting in it for you.I want to drink my beer first.Bring it with you You can drink it in the car.Walking away through the beach crowd, the man looked as out of place in his dark business suit as an insurance adjuster at a jalopy jamboree No one appeared to notice him.Keeping his shirt over it, Fletch picked up the plastic bag off the sand.He sat a few feet away from his group, his shirt over the plastic bag beside him Looking at the ocean, he drank some of the beer he held in his left hand With his right hand he dug a hole in the sand under his shirt.What s happening Bobbi asked.She was belly down on a towel.Thinkin.He put the plastic bag into the hole and covered it over with sand.I guess I m splittin , he said For a while.Will you be back tonight I dunno.Slinging his shirt over his shoulder, he started away.Gimme a swallow before you go.Bobbi jacked herself on her elbow and took some of the beer.That s good, she said.Hey, man, Creasey said.Fletch said, Splittin Too much sun.The license plate of the car was 440 001.In the car, Fletch sat with the can of cold beer between his knees The man drove smoothly and silently Below sunglasses, the man s face was expressionless On his left hand was a college ring He used a gold cigarette lighter from his jacket pocket rather than the dashboard lighter.In the shorefront traffic, the air conditioner was making the car cold Fletch opened the window The man turned the air conditioner off.He took the main road going north from town and accelerated The car cornered beautifully on the curves going up into The Hills He slowed, turned left on Hawthorne, then right on Berman Street.The house was what made Berman Street a dead end If it weren t for signs on the iron grilled gate saying PRIVATE PROPERTY NO TRESPASSING STANWYK, the road would appear to continue straight onto the driveway There were two acres of lawn on each side of the driveway in front of the house.Fletch threw his beer can through the window onto the lawn The man did not appear to notice.The house was built like a Southern mansion, with white pillars before a deep verandah.The man closed the door to the library behind them.Why do you want to die The envelope weighed little in the palm of Fletch s right hand.I am facing a long, ugly, painful and certain death.How so A while ago I was told I have cancer I ve had it checked and had it rechecked It s terminal Nonoperable, nontreatable cancer.You don t look it.I don t feel it A kind of general rottenness It s in its early stages The docs say it will be a while before it s noticeable to others Then it will move very swiftly.How long will it take They say three months, maybe four Not six months, anyway From what they say, I would guess in a month from now I won t be able to conceal that I have it.So A month s a month.When you make a decision like this that you re going to be dead you uh decide to do it as quickly, as soon as possible You try to cut the dying time.Hands behind his back, the man was facing the french windows Fletch guessed he was in his early thirties.Why don t you kill yourself Why do you need me My company has me insured for three million dollars I have a wife and child There is no point in losing the money, which I would, or rather my heirs would, if I committed suicide On the other hand, for three million dollars it s not worth going through that much pain and unpleasantness I believe I have made an entirely rational decision.The paintings in the room were not particularly good, in Fletch s opinion, but they were real.Why me You re a drifter You suddenly showed up in town You just as suddenly leave No one will think about it in particular, or connect you with the murder There will be no way of connecting you and me You see, I have planned your escape It is very important to me that you escape If you were caught, and talked, as you would, the insurance would be voided.Supposing I m not a drifter Supposing I m just on vacation.Is that what you re telling me That you re on vacation No.I ve been watching you off and on the last few days You re on the beach with the dregs of society You associate exclusively with drug addicts I must assume you are one yourself.Maybe I m a cop.Are you No.You have a deep body tan, Irwin Fletcher You re as skinny as an alley cat The soles of your feet are callused You ve been on the road a long time.Why did you pick me over the other kids on the beach You re no kid You look younger, but you re almost thirty.I m twenty nine.You re not as far gone as the others You re addicted, I suppose Otherwise you couldn t stand to live with those freaks But you still seem able to operate.I m a fairly reliable looking drifter.Don t feel complimented.Fletch said, What makes you think I want to commit murder Twenty thousand dollars And a guarantee you won t get caught.After staring out the window, it took the man s eyes a moment to adjust to the room He was unable to look at Fletch without an expression of mild disgust.You can t tell me you don t need money Addicts always need money Even beginners Maybe your taking this opportunity will prevent your committing genuine crimes.Why isn t this a genuine crime It s a mercy killing Are you married I have been, Fletch said Twice.And now you re on the road From where are you originally Seattle.So you commit an act of mercy, make some money, and split What s wrong with that I don t know I m not sure.Are you ready for More what More of the plan Or are you ready to quit I m ready Go ahead.I want to die next Thursday, a week from tonight, at about eight thirty It should look like the usual murder robbery scene The servants will be out, as they are now, and my wife will be at a committee meeting at the Racquets Club.These french windows will be unlocked The damned servants always forget to lock them anyway He swung the door open and closed it with his hand I used to complain about it until I realized their stupidity could be useful At the moment, we do not have a dog.I ll be in this room alone, waiting for you I will already have opened the safe, and in it will be twenty thousand dollars, in tens and twenties, which will be yours after you have murdered me I don t imagine opening a safe is one of your skills No.Too bad It would look better if it were authentically burglarized At least be sure to wear gloves I don t want you to get caught.In the drawer here, he said, reaching inside the top right hand desk drawer, is a gun which is always loaded It was a.38 caliber Smith Wesson The man showed him that it was loaded I figure you should use my gun, so no one can trace it to you Before you come, I will mess up the house a bit to indicate robbery.The trick will be to make it look as if I have caught you at burglary, you have already been in my desk, you have my gun, you shoot me Can you shoot Yes.Were you in the service Yes Marines.Either the head or the heart Just make it quick and painless, and, for Christ s sake, make sure you re thorough Do you have a passport No, Fletch lied.Of course not Get one That should be the first order of business, as that will take time It s not tourist season, so it shouldn t take than three or four days But get started tomorrow.After you murder me, you will drive the Jaguar, which will be parked out front, to the airport Leave the car in the Trans World Airlines parking lot You will be taking the eleven o clock flight to Buenos Aires I will make the reservation, and pay for it, in your name, tomorrow I figure twenty thousand dollars should buy you some fun in Buenos Aires For a year or two.Fifty thousand dollars would buy me even fun.You want fifty thousand dollars Murder doesn t cost that much.You forget you re to be the victim You want it done humanely.The man s eyes narrowed contemptuously.You re right Of course I guess fifty thousand dollars can be arranged without causing suspicion.The man returned to stare through the french windows Clearly he did not like looking at Fletch.I m doing everything I can to guarantee that you don t get caught All you have to remember are gloves and a passport The gun will be provided, and a seat on the plane will be reserved and prepaid.The man asked, Will you murder me Fletch said, Sure.2Clara Where are you, Fletcher I m in a phone booth.Are you all right Sure.I was afraid of that.I love you, too, bitch.Endearments will get you nowhere.There s nowhere I want to get with you Listen I m driving up tonight.To the office Yes.Why I think I m onto something interesting.Does it have to do with the drugs on the beach story As a matter of fact, no.Then I don t want to hear about it.I m not going to tell you about it anyway.Frank was asking for the drug beach story again this afternoon.Fuck Frank.He wants it, Fletcher That s scheduled as a major magazine story, and you were supposed to be in with it three issues ago.I m doing fine with it.He wants it now, Fletcher With pictures Frank was pretty boiled this afternoon, and you know how much I love you.You d stick up for me, wouldn t you, Clara In a pig s ass You can t take me off the story now, and Frank knows it I ve got too much time in on it Besides, no one else in the office has my tan.What we can do is fire you for failure to complete an assignment.Why don t you stop talking, Clara I said I m driving up tonight.There are some people who are just too goddamned obnoxious to have around.Meaning me Which reminds me, Fletcher Another sleazy lawyer was around the office again this afternoon looking for you Something about nonpayment of alimony.Which wife this time How the hell do I know Don t you pay either of them They both wanted to be free of me They re both free.But the court says you re not free of them.When I want legal advice, Clara, I ll ask.Keep those bums out of the office Your alimony problems are not our problems.Right, Clara.And don t come back here until you have that goddamned story done.I can miss a day with the little darlings I sort of told the kids I was splitting anyway For a while I can get back here by tomorrow night And have another wonderful weekend on the beach.I said no, Fletcher If you ve accomplished anything at all down there, you must have caused some curiosity Going for your car now and driving up to the office would just expose everything You shouldn t even be in a phone booth talking to me.I want to come up to make some phone calls and do some digging.On this story The beach one No The other one.We don t give a damn about any other story until you finish this one.Clara I m cold I m still in swimming trunks.I care Get off the phone and get doin what you re supposed to be doin It s seven thirty, and I ve had a long day.Bye, Clara Nice talking with you Don t get any crumbs in Frank s bed.Prick.Running on the beach warmed him The setting sun made his shadow gigantic, his strides seem enormous There were people still on the beach, as there always were these days Taking off his shirt as he ran made his shadow on the sand look as if he were Big Bird trying to take off.Near Fat Sam s lean to, he threw his shirt on the sand and sat beside it His aim had been perfect Under the shirt he dug up the plastic bag His fingers told him that the camera was still inside.With the bag wrapped in his shirt, Fletch ambled back along the beach to the residential section The houses became spacious and the distances between them greater.A checkbook was on the sand Fletch picked it up Merchants Bank No depositor s name was printed on the checks, but there was an account number, and a balance of seven hundred eighty five dollars and thirty four cents.Fletch stuck the checkbook into a back pocket of his sawed off blue jeans.A man stoking a barbecue pit yelled at him as he cut through a back yard Fletch gestured at him in Italian.He picked up his keys in the office and padded over the greasepacked garage floor to where his MG was parked In the trunk were long jeans and a sweater.Hey, jerk The guy in the office was fat and bald You can t change your pants in here You can t strip in a public place.I did.Wise ass What if some ladies were around There are no ladies in California.The toughest, leanest horse to hit the literary racetrack since James M Cain, and its sheer pleasure to watch him make his run Pete HamillA top rate thriller told in stripped down
