Re: Ch. 11 - The Criminals Chase the Police
The Man Who Was Thursday
Chapter 11 Summary
The Criminals Chase The Police
The four policemen along with one of Ratcliffe's seconds - Colonel Ducroix flee into the woods in attempt to avoid the pursuing mob. In the woods they come across a woodcutter whom they hire along with his cart to take them to Le Soleil d’Or
an inn of run by an old, and loyal soldier. At the inn hire horses to allow them to outpace the mob to the police station on the other side of town.
This is a very short chapter with a fair amount of obfuscation, as they say on
Puzzler. The chapter functions as a transition where the pursuers, the police, become the pursued and the reader is setup for the biggest twist so far which happens in Chapter 12.
