Excerpt

g. The poor beggar who was assaulted was carrying some of the Professor's baggage. The whole incident struck me as most odd. There was an idea lurking in my mind that something else - something more - lay behind all this. With impatience I awaited the time when the injured man, having received medical attention, was conveyed ashore, and Professor Deeping reappeared. To the celebrated traveller and Oriental scholar I introduced myself.

He was singularly reticent.

"I was unable to see what took place, Mr. Cavanagh," he said. "The poor fellow was behind me, for I had stepped from the boat ahead of him. I had just taken a bag from his hand, but he was carrying another, heavier one. It is a clean cut, like that of a scimitar. I have seen very similar wounds in the cases of men who have suffered the old Moslem penalty for theft."

Nothing further had come to light when the Mandalay left, but I found new matter for curiosity in the behaviour of the Moslem party who had come on board at Port Said.

Not up to the usual Rohmer quality. Starts as a very exciting novel with a mysterious muslim organization in pursuit but ends in a most contrived way. Ending is disappointing.
