CHAPTER XIX - THE EMPEROR MAKES A SUGGESTION

sums like £500 away without getting something in exchange. What was of such value that it could command a price like that ? He looked again at the slip he had typed in so curious a manner. Then he slipped it out of the machine and put it in his pocket. He had an idea that it might come in useful later.
Brewer had waited patiently all this time for an answer to his question. Now he repeated it.
" Oh," answered Gerry, suddenly remembering him, " I don't see why I should. He might quite easily be a tool or a confederate like Erik or any of the others."
" Did you ever see Bernotte face to face ? " asked Brewer.
" No," replied Gerry. " I didn't even bother about him until that postal packet went astray and he made such a fuss. Even then, I wasn't very interested. When you asked the police to look up his particulars you found nothing suspicious. They said he was O.K., didn't they ? "
" Yes, they said his papers were all right," answered Brewer.
" Then why ask me if I knew him? " demanded Gerry.
" Because he is one of the ugliest men I have ever seen," said Brewer. " His face is all twisted like."
" Twisted like," repeated Gerry almost in a whisper. It came like a cold blast of Arctic wind ! His quick brain recognised the expression. In a flash he thought of the words of the poor coastguard as he drew his last breath, " twisted-all twisted."
" Brewer," he said solemnly. " Doesn't that remind You of something ? "
The detective looked at Gerry in surprise.
" Why, yes! " he cried. " That poor devil who died in the strong-room at Thomson-Wentworth's ! He ~'as babbling about something 'twisted.'"
