    Stone Barrington set down his Citation CJ-3 Plus smoothly at Key West International Airport and taxied to the ramp. The lineman waved him to the right, toward a large hangar next to the Fixed Base Operator's own huge hangar. Stone followed the lineman's hand motions until he got the crossed-arm signal from the lineman, then he shut down the engines, ran through his final check list, turned off the main switch and struggled out of his seat.
    He opened the door and put down the folding stairs.
    "Afternoon, Mr. Barrington," the lineman said. "Do you want her in your new hangar?" He pointed to the large one, now behind the airplane. Stone had closed on the sale a few days before.
    "Yes, please," Stone replied.
    "And your car was delivered," the lineman said. "They have the keys at the front desk." Raul, the caretaker of the house Stone had just bought, had left it there for him.

    "If you want to drive your car onto the ramp, you'll have to stop in at the sheriff's office near the main entrance and get yourself a security badge that will allow you and your car onto the ramp. Right now, I'll cart your luggage out there for you."
    "Thanks very much," Stone said. "I'll pick up the key and meet you there."
    "You want fuel now or later?"
    "Later, please." It would be hot in the hangar, and he didn't want the fuel to expand and leak out of the vents. Stone walked into the FBO lobby, introduced himself and retrieved his car key, then met the lineman outside at his car, a Mercedes 550S Cabriolet, which had been included in the purchase of the house from his business associate, Arthur Steele of the Steele Group of Insurance Companies. Arthur had cleverly rented him the house through an agent, knowing that once Stone had stayed in it, he would want to buy it. Stone's great weakness, along with attractive women and 100-proof bourbon, was houses, of which he now had too many.
    He tipped the lineman generously, to make a good first impression.
    The lineman closed the trunk. "Just give us a call when you want your airplane, and we'll roll her out for you."
    "Thanks very much." Stone got into the car, started it, turned on the air conditioning and put down the top. He drove out of the airport and turned down South Roosevelt Boulevard, along Smathers Beach. A ten-minute drive later he was turning into his driveway, which was right next door to a "gentleman's club" called Bare Assets. He pulled into the carport, as opposed to the garage, and Raul came out of his small house and helped him in with the luggage. They had first met on Stone's last visit to Key West for the Steele Group's board meeting, when he had been a tenant. A housekeeper, Sara, was also part of the deal.
    The house had once been three small houses on separate lots. A previous owner had moved the smallest one over a dozen feet or so and bolted it to the center house, which contained his study, the dining room, living room, kitchen and bar. The master suite was in the free-standing third house, which had been completely renovated.

    Stone had just deposited his luggage in the master suite when his builder, Karl Walters, turned up to walk him through the house and show him the projects he had completed since Stone had bought it. He showed Stone the new laundry room, the alterations to the kitchen, his study, with its new bookcases, one of them being a secret door to a kitchenette, where there was room for the safe he had ordered. Then he saw the new bar and video room, just completed.
    "It's beautiful, Karl," Stone said, and I appreciate your fast work on the place." Karl was semi-retired and their mutual attorney, Jack Spottswood had persuaded him to do the project.
    "We aim to please," Karl said. "Your boat has had her bottom cleaned and repainted and is back in her berth at the Key West Yacht Club." Jack had just happened to have a recently-widowed client whose late husband's newish Hinc
