CHAPTER XVIII - THE MASTER'S LAIR

" Why not ?" parried Gerry. " He burgled us, didn't he ? "
But Brewer could not answer. " Burglary " on top of everything that had gone before ! It was too much for him to swallow all at once !
Gerry was left alone for awhile, to mature his plans for the expedition which he had decided must be that evening. He had no idea what the result of it would be. Brewer had told him of their neighbour's flight in the big high-powered car ; but after all, that might only be a blind. It might not even be flight ! Besides, when they came down to brass tacks, what had they against Bernotte ? First, the fact that he had noticed the ambulance and come to enquire if Gerry was hurt : secondly, that he had been on his balcony and must have seen the person who had been at his bedroom window : thirdly, that Brewer had believed he had actually seen him at the same window that very day, and had connected up his departure in a car with an attempt to escape. These points were all they had to go on-very slender evidence to connect a man to such a beastly crime as the one that had been attempted on Gerry in the train coming from London ! Yet-taken in sequence, they certainly provided an excuse for further investigation. He could not help thinking that the real blame for the outrage should be laid at the door of that monster whom the blackguards at Bottle Bank called the " Master." He would have given a lot to know where to lay hands on him. That record-and others similar to it which he had heard-and the voice which spoke on it, often puzzled him.
