However, though that island provides a convenient cover for the German plotters to meet and talk, what is actually going on there is a genuine salvage operation seeking to find a cargo of gold from a French ship sunken during the Napoleonic Wars.

The story The writings of Robert C. Sands book Beynon was one of the latest pro ductions of the author. The clue followed by Carruthers, in a brief overheard conversation of the German plotters, is that one such lighter would be tested under open sea conditions and that a certain high-ranking German "insisted on being personally present". They are warned away by a German Navy patrol boat, the Blitz, and its commander von Bruning - who is friendly and affable, but still makes a veiled warning. The actual German design, revealed only at the end - a full-fledged, meticulous plan for the invasion of England - is in fact unfolding among very mundane and prosaic small Frisian towns and harbours.

However, getting in the fog from Norderney to Memmert and back is a nearly impossible feat, which only Davies' superb seamanship could have achieved, and the Germans do not seriously suspect them of having done that. He overhears von Bruning and Dollmann discussing something more than treasure hunting, including cryptic references to "Chatham", "Seven" and "the tide serving", and hear of a rendezvous at the Frisian railway station, several days ahead. In any case, Davies is suspicious about what would motivate Dollmann to try to kill him, and believed that it is some scheme involving the German Imperial government. Sands, in conjunction with two of his literary friends, under the Excerpt from The Writings of Robert C.
