CHAPTER XV
ROYSTON AND A DISCOVERY

IN a large roomy office, whose tall Victorian windows looked out over the Thames Embankment, three men were sitting. The reader would have recognised one of them at once-his tall distinguished figure has already passed across our path. But to-day, Lord d'Harlecourt was looking very anxious and worriedas well he might ! The man sitting at the desk, leaning back in his swivel chair, with finger tips together and his elbows resting on the arms, was General Mason, Chief Commissioner of Scotland Yard. His clean-cut features and broad forehead indicated the depth and power of the brain he possessed, and were compelling in their claim to efficiency. He was widely recognised as one of the cleverest and finest men who had ever held this exalted post. Yet he was a very human sort of person ; never did he lack sympathy and understanding -even when face to face with crime in its most sordid form.
The third member of this very unusual trio had just at that moment entered the room. Quite a young man, Royston might have seemed almost out of place in company with the other two who had reached the pinnacle of their ambitions in life ; but he had two claims to their confidence. In the first place, he was the nephew of the Foreign Minister, and the godson of the Chief Commissioner himself; secondly, he had successfully carried out quite a lot of important work for the Yard already, although he had just been down
