CHAPTER XV - THE CUNNING OF A FIEND

To make matters more strange, not a soul had seen them being carried down to the pier by the man who put them into the water. He had talked the matter over with the Colonel, and he was finally convinced that although someone might have managed to dispose of a body in this manner on one occasion, yet it could not have occurred a second time, because all the guards had been doubled since the first affair ; and the same precaution had been adopted by the Coastguard, since their own man had been found dead.
Gerry was completely baffled.
Then that dying expression of the poor fellow on the beach " twisted-all twisted." What on earth did it mean ? It reminded him of the dying words of the other by the strong-room door, " he has a twisted " -twisted what ? It was all so damnably confusing. Was there any connection between these two things ? Absurd ! he thought. But no! ... Not so absurd, he reasoned-there was a link. That link was the Commander !
It was strange how everything seemed to centre about him.
Then there was this scoundrel the " Master " to take into consideration. Who was this unknown man ? Was he the evil genius behind the Commander's life ? It looked very like it ; what with the doings at the Commander's office and all that. How, then, could he get into touch with so elusive a bird ? Gerry turned over several schemes in his mind, but not one of them seerned satisfactory. He wished the Commander would only be more frank, and trust him. Of course he realised that the two strange expressions about something " twisted " might only be coincidencesnay, might not even be that. Perhaps he was trying to be too clever. Poor Gerry ! He was dreadfully mixed up in his ideas just now. After all, he was entertaining the most horrible suspicions
