CHAPTER V - GERRY DALTON

" On each occasion I was there, I saw another man moving about on the pier. On the second nightwhen you say the coastguard was murdered-I spent at least an hour dodging him. I didn't want to be ordered off."
" Ordered off," repeated the Colonel. " Why ? Who was it? "
" The Commander, of course," was the reply.
" Commander Finch," gasped the other. Then he laughed. " You've overstepped the mark this time," he said. " Why Finch was with me on this very spot when we saw the man the first time. And he was away in Southampton when the second murder was done. You must have been mistaken. By JupiterI have forgotten all about the coffee. Not a word to Madelaine mind-I don't want to frighten her any more than can be helped."
Gerry Dalton did not reply. He did not as a rule make mistakes like this. And he had been pretty sure that it was the Commander he had seen. Still, he obeyed the Colonel's injunction to keep quiet.
" Where have you two been ? " smiled the Colonel's attractive lady when they re-entered the house. "Has he been on his dear old topic of spies again ? "
She laughed as she spoke, but Gerry felt her voice had a false note in it somehow. He could not help thinking she knew something more than she would say.
He had been very disturbed at the Commander's behaviour those two nights ; especially at the curiosity he had shown at a certain door near the centre of the pier. What on earth did he want to go prowling round there for at night ? Gerry had seen quite enough lately to make him want to know a lot more about the habits of their old friend. He could not believe that these two murders he had just heard of, were

the work of the gun designer. Still, there was a lot to be enquired into.
That was why he had come to-day to see Colonel Kenton and his charming wife. He felt sure that if one could not help him, the other could.
