I— The fact that the Lascar's body had been found near the Joy Shop, scene of an encounter with Fu Manchu. may Have been only a comcidcr.cc. but it furnished a startling lead. 1 bt / n eagerly to question officer. • At lugh tide last flight,"’ the officer explained. I “Hewson. returning with the ten o’clock boat, noticed the moonlight glittering upon the knife. He investi- i gated and found the incoming tide had jammed live , body right up under a crossbeam amongst the piles.' J The knife to which the Inspector referred possess ed a long, curved blade. The dead man still clutched the hilt of the weapon But his hand had been twist ed under htt body so that 1 had to turn him over to see it. The knife was of a kind with which I had been ter ribly familiar in the past. "You sec the mark, Petrie?" snapped Smith. ! nodded. The dead man upon the table was a Bur mese dacoit, one of Fu Manchu's henchmen.
