CHAPTER XXII - THE MASTER STRIKES A BLOW

Day or night she was never out of his mind. Fear was eating at his very heart, till at last he was almost desperate. He hardly knew where to turn.
Next day after the death of Seventy-seven, he came down to breakfast after a bath and shave, still feeling the effects of the night. He was depressed and worried. He could hardly be bothered with all the letters on the table waiting to be opened, till suddenly he spotted one of them. It was a long official envelope with the Admiralty crest on it. Slowly he opened it, and pulling the thin sheet of official paper from the cover, began to read. It was only the report of the torpedo boat destroyer which had appeared so mysteriously in the river-mouth that night, then silently slunk away again. It appeared that it had been traced all the way across to the mouth of the Elbe and up past Heligoland in the direction of Hamburg.
In view of his recent excitement, the doings of this tiresome stranger did not interest Gerry very much. However, it was his duty not to overlook the fact that he had been told to watch out for any activities at sea ; the tramp-steamer which had been seen lurking about the mouth of the Tyne had not been forgotten yet. Some time ago, he had obtained from the Harbour Master a tracing of the exact area which the Tyne Defences covered. On one of these charts was shown the exact part under the influences of the strange eddy which seemed to be responsible for throwing up the bodies and the box into Frenchman's Haven. The Admiralty report gave the position which the T.B.D. Occupied when she was waiting for the unexplained motor-boat which had put off to her ; and Gerry thought he had better just glance at it on the chart -though he could not see how it would be of any use to him.
However, he was to get a surprise. Hardly had he unrolled the chart and marked the spot, when he
