"Walter Oliphant, penniless and starving, had saved a man's life and the man in grateful recognition had given him an excellent job. And thenit was that Oliphant began to wonder. Was Neruda's profound interest in hi m the result of gratitide and nothing else7 What was the mysterious glint in the financier's eyes that he caught fixed on him now and again? What was the implication of the sinister hints that he deliberately let fall but would never explain? Why did he concern himself so intimately with Oliphanfs personal life? Why was the knowledge of Oliphanfs love affair so profoundly distasteful to him that he made every effort to destroy it ?
