Blore recovered himself first. He said:
“Sorry—er—Rogers. Heard someone moving about in here, and thought—well—”
He stopped.
Rogers said:
“I’m sorry, gentlemen. I was just moving my things. I take it there will be no objection if I
take one of the vacant guest chambers on the floor below? The smallest room.”
It was to Armstrong that he spoke and Armstrong replied:
“Of course. Of course. Get on with it.”
He avoided looking at the sheeted figure lying on the bed.
Rogers said:
“Thank you, sir.”
He went out of the room with his arm full of belongings and went down the stairs to the
floor below.
Armstrong moved over to the bed and, lifting the sheet, looked down on the peaceful face
of the dead woman. There was no fear there now. Just emptiness.
Armstrong said:
“Wish I’d got my stuff here. I’d like to know what drug it was.”
Then he turned to the other two.
“Let’s get finished. I feel it in my bones we’re not going to find anything.”
Blore was wrestling with the bolts of a low manhole.
He said:
“That chap moves damned quietly. A minute or two ago we saw him in the garden. None
of us heard him come upstairs.”
Lombard said:
“I suppose that’s why we assumed it must be a stranger moving about up here.”
Blore disappeared into a cavernous darkness. Lombard pulled a torch from his pocket and
followed.
Five minutes later three men stood on an upper landing and looked at each other. They
were dirty and festooned with cobwebs and their faces were grim.
There was no one on the island but their eight selves.

布洛尔首先回过神来。他说:
“不好意思,呃——罗杰斯。刚才我们听到有人在这里走动的声音,以为……那个……
有人……”
他说不下去了。
罗杰斯说:
“很抱歉,先生们。我刚刚在整理自己的东西。我打算搬到楼下去住。我选了最小的那
间空房,不知道这样做合不合适。”
他是对阿姆斯特朗说的,阿姆斯特朗回答说:
“当然,没问题。你换吧。”
他的目光尽量避开床上盖着床单的尸体。
罗杰斯说:
“谢谢,先生。”
他双手抱着衣物走出房间,顺着楼梯走向楼下。
阿姆斯特朗走到床边,揭开床单,俯视已经死去的罗杰斯太太。她脸上不再有恐惧的
神情,只剩下空虚和茫然。
阿姆斯特朗说:
“如果我把医学装备带来就好了,我真想搞清楚她吃下去的究竟是什么东西。”
他转过身,对另外两个人说:
“我们收手吧。我有预感,绝对找不出任何东西了。”
布洛尔使劲儿扳着墙脚边管道口的阀门。
他说:
“罗杰斯真是行踪诡秘,刚才我们还看见他在花园里,谁也没听见他上楼的声音。”
隆巴德说:
“所以我们才会以为有其他人在这间屋子里走动呢。”
打开阀门以后,布洛尔钻进黑漆漆的管道入口。隆巴德从口袋里掏出一支手电,也钻
了进去。
过了五分钟,他们站在顶层的楼道口。三个人灰头土脸,面面相觑,浑身挂满了蜘蛛
网。
这座岛上只剩下他们八个人,没有其他人。
