CHAPTER XXIII - TREACHERY AND TRAGEDY

MADELAINE KENTON could not forget the day, such a short time ago, when Gerry Dalton had frightened her so much by bringing up the Comte de Faucelles in the conversation. She believed at first that this debonair young man had guessed there was something suspicious between them -but second thoughts had shown her how impossible this was. How could such a gay, light-heartedalmost feather-headed-man-about-town like Gerry have ever heard anything about her life before she had met the Colonel ? How could he possibly have found out why she had married the bluff old soldier ... and who the inhuman devil was who had forced her to do it ? How, indeed, was anyone to know that she was a paid spy, on the books of the Secret Service of a great Power ? That she had come to England to do just the very thing she was now being forced to do ?
At the time, she had been very eager to do the work allocated to her. Even marrying the Colonel had not been too big a price for her to pay, so that she might fill her contract. In those days Madelaine Kenton was a whirlwind of energy. Intrigue appealed to her. The risk and excitement of being a secret agent thrilled her through and through, every time she thought of it. When the chance came of being a privileged person in the midst of some of the most vital of Britain's defences, she seized it with an unholy joy, even though
