When the children got to the fire it was almost out. They saw Detective Russo there. He had found two gas cans and was sure it was an arsonist job. “I’m going to talk to Hammer Garson and find out where he was tonight,” he said.

“He wasn’t here,” said Carmen. “We saw him at the movies.”

The children didn’t say anything about the man they saw laughing. They were afraid the detective would think they were crazy. As soon as the detective left, they met Mr. Ozmer. They told him about the man they followed. He frowned. “Don’t do this detective work,” he said. “What will your mother think?”

The next morning they passed in front of the house where they had seen the man go in. It was at 23 Johnson Street. The man was outside, painting the fence. He smiled at them. “Good morning,” he said. Juan and Carmen tried to answer. Did he know that they had followed them? Finally Juan managed to answer in a weak voice.

As they turned the corner they met their friend Sally. They asked her about the man who was painting the fence. “Oh,” she answered, “that’s Mr. Cantell. He used to work at the gas station that burned down yesterday. He had a big fight with the owner and now works across town.”

Juan and Carmen thought this information was very important. They tried to contact Paul Russo at the Police Station, but he was off that day. Then they decided to watch the Cantells every night.
