CHAPTER XXIV - ROYSTON GOES ABROAD

up her disappearance with the visit of the German destroyer, now in cold blood seemed too absurd to entertain for a moment. Besides, if she were in Germany where could she be ? And who had sent her there ? And why ?
As if to taunt him still more, his eyes rested at this moment on an open book. It was the Almanack de Gotha. He had been on the point of looking up the Comte de Faucelles when Brewer had interrupted him last night with the terrible news about Sir Robert.
Acting on his instructions, Brewer had already looked up the Comte and found the title was authentic enough ; and Gerry at the time had put his doubts on one side, never thinking that anyone who was a fraud would be so foolish as to take so well known a name. Nothing doubting, he let his eye run over the open page in a casual manner.
" Comte de Faucelles," he read. " The Grand Duke Ferdinand Nicholas Georg, second son of the late King Josef the Second of Bulkrania, Knight of the Golden Eagle . . . takes this title from his vast German and Silesian estates."
But, as Gerry was reading, he began to think that he had heard something not very long ago about the Grand Duke Ferdinand. Surely he had been killed in a horrible road accident ? Yes-of course-the car had overturned and burst into flames-leaving only the charred remains of the Grand Duke and his escort. The account had been in all the papers-somewhere a year or two ago. Gerry was almost certain of this ! He remembered the impression it had made on him at the time.
How on earth, then, could he be alive to-day ? Gerry realised that either his memory was playing him a trick, or this man who called himself " Comte " was a fraud-in which case he might easily be connected with all the mysterious happenings lately on Tyneside.
