"Boję się strzelać" powtórzył Haydock bezradnie. Ale w tej samej chwili huknął strzał. Kobieta zachwiała się i upadła, nie wypuściwszy Betty z objęć. Mężczyźni podbiegli do niej.

Zobaczył twarz kobiety, spostrzegł niezwykłe, posępne piękno jej rysów. Oczy otworzyły się, spojrzały na niego i zaszły mgłą. Westchnąwszy cicho, kobieta umarła, postrzelona śmiertelnie w głowę
