'I know who planted the bugs,' Biggles replied.
'Major Bigglesworth' said Von Stalhein coldly, 'there are times when I seriously wonder if you were created by the devil just to annoy me.'

Biggles told him everything. "I always knew Barney was a sneaky one,"Algy said when Biggles had finished. "At least you can tell Raymond you wrapped it up."

'Can I?' Biggles asked. 'Without knowing what this huge, establishment-destroying-crisis-in-which-no-one-can-be-trusted, is?'

“Hmm, you might have a point there,” Algy conceded.

“I’m not sure yet. I need to think. There must be someone we know ‘in the know’ other than Barney.”

Biggles devoted a number of cigarettes to the problem, but was forced to the conclusion that he didn't have enough information. He didn't know what he was enquiring about so he didn't know who to ask.

He went to bed nowhere nearer to solving his problem. In spite of what Barney said, Biggles wasn’t sure that Raymond knew nothing about it.

Biggles sighed. If he wanted to know what was happening, he'd have to go back to Barney.

The next morning, though, he received a telephone call from Smyth which set him thinking.

“Someone has been asking questions about me at Heathrow” Biggles explained to Algy. “One of the maintenance crew there overheard someone asking questions about me. He rang Smyth, who’s a friend of his. Thought I ought to know.”

Biggles did a bit of chatting and got a description. It was Snookums who was wanting to find out about Maintenance Schedulers. He hoped she was better at her day job.

Biggles couldn't help feeling a little flattered. He now knew that Barney was still interested in him.

The problem, Biggles felt, was how to discover what the crisis was without committing himself to investigating it.

He also wondered what he would do if Barney suddenly came up with every one of his demands, from Algy going with him, through to getting rid of the Maintenance Scheduler's post, and paying him the high amount of cash he had stated.

If Snookums was making enquiries about Maintenance Schedulers, then it was very possible that his demands would be met.

Which brought him back to the beginning again. Did he wants to take the job? He wouldn't know until he found out what it was.

Biggles wriggled uncomfortably. He wasn't sure if it was his sense of duty or his curiosity,but he wasn't going to rest easy until he found out what was happening .

A chance came the very next day. Major Charles, unknown to Biggles, had heard of Barney's offer to Biggles.

Well aware of Biggles' skills and success in certain matters he thought that whatever it was would be of paramount importance and started to make enquiries.

Major Charles' enquiries came to the ears of Wuffles, who called an emergency meeting of the triumvirate.

'Possibly,' allowed Wuffles. They were drinking cocktails at the Bar again. 'But Biggles has done much work for Charles, and we have to bear in mind the possibility that Biggles has approached Charles to see if he knows what's happening.'

This gave them most food for thought.

"Whatever," Snookums declared dismissively, waving her hand. "It's done now and we should be looking for at damage limitation. Major Charles isn't a nobody and he's not a fool either."

'The question,' Barney suggested, 'is whether we'll do more harm by approaching Charles or ignoring his investigation.'

'The Lord knows who'll he'll talk to and what he'll ask if we don't tell him enough to shut him up,' argued Wuffles. They gloomily ordered and drank another cocktail in silence.
