CHAPTER XVIII - THE MASTER'S LAIR

"Disappeared," said Brewer, who could not help smiling at Gerry's face. "He managed to find out that you were all right again, and did a bunk."
" How do you know this ?" demanded Gerry.
"He must have been watching for you," said Brewer, " and have seen you slip out the side way."
" But I was disguised," said Gerry in surprise.
" You had not been gone half an hour," went on Brewer, " when someone appeared at your window again, and this time I was in the room and saw him. Unfortunately he saw me too, and bolted."
" And it was Bernotte ?" hazarded Gerry.
" Yes!" was the answer. " I didn't quite know what to do," went on Brewer. " I knew that we could put our hands on him whenever we wanted, but I was still rather in the dark as to how it would affect your plans. I asked myself : Should I pretend I had not recognised him and let him have his head-or should I go after him and get him ?"
" Yes," said Gerry slowly. " You were between two fires. If you had gone after him you could only have taxed him with being curious ; but by letting him go, you thought you would deceive him into thinking he had not been detected. And now of course he has seized the opportunity and made off."
Brewer looked sorry for himself.
" I don't see what else you could have done," said Gerry at last.
" Thank you, sir," said Brewer eagerly. " But i got the number of his car and a fairly good description of it from my man outside."
" That's always something," said Gerry hopefully. " And I've circulated both the description of the car and the man himself," added Brewer proudly.
" Then we must wait events," said Gerry. " Meanwhile, why shouldn't we have a peep at him ?"
" What," gasped Brewer. " Burgle next door ?"
