CHAPTER XV - THE CUNNING OF A FIEND

" Dashed confusing," was Gerry's reply. " There's the very dickens of a lot of murdering going on-I know it sounds fearfully melodramatic-but I cannot get to the root of it all."
" Perhaps you had better tell me what it's all about," suggested the General, leaning back patiently in his chair. " Yes ! do smoke if you wish-I have my pipe here too." For Gerry had pulled out his pipe absently, then when he suddenly realised he was in the Chief's sanctum he pushed it back again.
Gerry gratefully proceeded to load his pipe, talking quickly all the time. He told the General everything he had found out-all his clues and ideas, and held nothing back. The Chief kept silence till he had finished.
" You have an amazing lot of foreigners up your way, Gerry," he said at last. " Just let us think about them for a moment."
Gerry listened with eager attention. The General was infallible in his deductions.
" First and foremost you have the new man at Number 14 Priory Terrace. You have met him a few times, I take it, and doubtless weighed him up. Then there is this Comte de Faucelles whose record is beyond suspicion-if he is the Comte de Faucelles ! Again then, that Swedish gentleman who lives next door to your father in Eldon Square. Of course I am not suggesting that any one of them is a suspicious character-all I say is that it's curious coincidence. But there is another and more sinister figure in the background-this man they call the Master. So far, you have nothing more to go upon than that he is Somewhat like Commander Finch, and has hair in his beard which reminds you of Herr Durkheim."
Gerry was startled at this blunt and brief analysis of the situation. For sheer conciseness it would have taken a lot of beating ; and for shrewdness it was unparalleled.
