Madelaine Kenton. " Please discuss it quite frankly." She was desperately anxious to learn what this meant. Was it some fresh horror? Was she in any way responsible ?
So the Colonel told them all about the different bodies they had found, and how they had discovered them. Of course, Royston knew most of it already.
" And this cave? " he asked finally, when the Colonel came to a full stop.

The tears sprang to Madelaine Kenton's eyes as she realised that she herself was as much Gerry's murderer as the unknown beast himself. If only she had found the courage to tell all she knew, Gerry might have been spared.
