ree figures? They were geometrical figures, weren't they? Triangles?"

She formed a triangle with her two fore-fingers and her two thumbs:

"There, the shape was like that. . . . As for their arrangement . . ."

She picked up a twig that had fallen from a tree and was beginning to draw lines in the sand of the path when a whistle sounded.

"That's god-father's signal when he wants me in the Yard," she cried.

"No," I said, "to-day it's for me. We fixed it."

A very good story, with the makings of a modern thriller, or very near to
that.
Regretfully I couldn't find the original French text, and I'm afraid some of typical French rhetoric may seem somewhat lengthy and less fluid than they are in French.
All the same, the plot is original and interesting, has good twists and turns, the characters have life in them, there are two or three good
historical reminiscences and when some sentimental lines seem too...
sentimental, you may expect a quick change to an unexpected event on the
next page.
A curious and satisfying read.
One couldn't expect less from Arsène Lupin creator.
