CHAPTER III - THE BODY ON THE SANDS

" Sir Charles Magee, milord," said the butler at the door.
" Show him in," said Lord Tankerton quietly. He walked slowly towards the door as his confidential adviser entered the room.

" I have never been able to make out why people don't like the place," the peer said thoughtfully. " The other like in Priory Terrace are all well ' let '-and to families who have had them for many years. The Terrace stands in a magnificent position on the top of that cliff overlooking the sea. P'raps that's it-it may be too exposed ? Yet the others do not find it so. Why should this particular house be any worse than the rest ? "
" The last people who had it, said it was unsafe, I believe," said Sir Charles. " I think the explanation is that the sea has made certain inroads under the cliff just about this point, and when the tide comes in at nights, the sound of the water rushing in and out is somewhat terrifying. But it is all rubbish for anyone to say that it isn't safe. The whole place is built on solid rock ! And as for being damp -that is nonsense too ! "
