it, using his torch sparingly. At the far end the passage turned abruptly, and a faint mist of light warned him that he was approaching a more habited part.
He turned the corner and found himself on a wide landing with stairs running both up and down. There was a wide balustrade all round it, and a profusion of exotic palms and flowery shrubs set in tubs. Dain leaned over the banisters and listened.
From down below came a subdued murmur of servants' voices and the occasional clatter of a plate of cutlery. Elsewhere a complete silence reigned. Then from along the opposite passagea handsome approach that was more like a miniature hall-came the sound of an opening door.
Dain made a silent dive down behind the palms and remained, doubled up on his hands and knees, as motionless as a rock. Soft footfalls sounded on the thick carpets and someone approached. Dain saw him for the fraction of a second through his leafy screen : a man in evening dress, faultlessly attired. He passed leisurely and went up the stairs, humming a quiet little snatch of melody from one of the operas. Dain could not recognise him as anyone he had ever met before and put him down as a guest, or more probably the Count's private secretary.
Dain waited till the sound of his last footfall had vanished and then followed up in his wake.
He reached the next landing without further alarm. That landing was obviously the main section of the house.
