Excerpt

kidded myself. Now I can't kid myself any longer.... No!" he cried out sharply. "Leave me out of it! This is what I want to say. You must get out of Monte Carlo. At once. By the first train!"

"But why?" asked Mme. Storey.

"I can't tell you that. I can only say that you're in danger. Horrible danger! You can't fight this thing. It's too well covered. They'll get you if you stay here!"

It was obvious that he thought Mme. Storey had accepted the job of breaking the ring of blackmailers. She didn't undeceive him.

She said, "If I were to leave now it would be suspected that you had warned me."

He laughed a bitter note. "I expect they know it already."

"What will you do?" she said. "You can't go on with your present life."

"Never mind that. Only do what I say. You see that I'm in earnest. It's true I'm taking a risk in warning you. But let that go. It's the first decent act of my life. Let me feel that I've done some good. Will you do what I say? Will you go?"
