CHAPTER XII - DIFFICULTIES

What is more, I must find out who the man behind these people is."
" You are a dark horse, sir," laughed Brewer. " You haven't told me yet how you got wind of that burglary last night, at Sir Robert Gill's."
" All in good time," smiled Gerry. " But you would laugh if you knew ! "
" And you think there is one particular man behind the movement ? " asked Brewer.
" Yes ! One they call the ' Master,' " said Gerry. " But he never goes near the place. None of them has ever seen him. He is a mysterious man with a horrible harsh voice-and yet it can be so soft and crooning."
Gerry seemed far away ; and Brewer looked at him in frank astonishment.
" But have you heard his voice ?" asked he.

There is nothing to be gained at present, in pressing those two men Henrotin and Taylor to talk. When I questioned them last night they would say nothing. However, I think I have a way that will persuade them later on. Meanwhile, we have to consider whether or not this affair last night had anything to do with the other, last week.
