When Fanch salvaged a dinghy from a muddy inlet in the Estuary and renamed her the Petit-Emile
he never expected to arouse so much curiousity. What business was it of the Harbour Master and the police sergeant? After all, he had got permission from the Receiver of Wrecks to take the boat.
And why was Monsieur Cosquer, who said he had come to lodge in Fanch's home for the rest and sea air, so inquisitive about the boat? Who were the two men who beat him up? Did all this mystery tie up with the missing yacht Berenice? Or was everyone really searching for something much more valuable?
