CHAPTER XIII - THE TYNE DEFENCES

" That someone is ready to declare war on us," he ventured at last.
And Gerry nodded.
" Now let us turn to some other points," he went on. " What was the cause of those two bodies being found on the sands at Tynemouth ? There are some very important defences there-as you probably know. Can it be that someone was spying ?"
" They both seem to be the work of the same man, don't they ? " asked Brewer. " The murders, I mean, sir," he added.
" Yes," replied Gerry, " and in each case-as you say-the men were murdered and not drowned. Not a vestige of water was found in their lungs according to the post-mortem. How they ever got into the water at all, I cannot say ; though it is quite easy to understand why they were thrown up by the sea at precisely the same place. I made enquiries from the Harbour Master and discovered that there is a peculiar eddy just there, made by the river meeting the incoming waves from the sea. It sweeps along the pier and delivers any floating matter on to the little beach at Frenchman's Haven. But there is one thing that strikes me as being curious : that eddy only works in a limited area which touches the cliff edge just under where the Coastguard Cabin stands, and stretches along to a spot half-way along the pier. Everything beyond that is outside its influence."
" Then you mean, sir," said Brewer, catching the point, " that these two bodies must have been put into the sea aftey death, somewhere round about the bay itself. But surely the whole place is guarded by the military ? "
" Well, it isn't actually patrolled," answered Gerry. " Still, as you say, it would be exceedingly difficult to carry a body anywhere about there, without being seen."
