Though Ian searches all over the monastery, he is unable to find the person who lit the candles. Doris finally convinces him to come back out to the courtyard, where it feels safer. Still, even while everyone is eating a meal prepared by Ken, Ian can't help but think about those mysterious candles. Who was the person who lit them? And to where did they disappear?
That night, sleepless, Ian takes up his flashlight and again searches the monastery; this time Doris accompanies him, pistol in hand. Still no clues. Out in the compound, at the gate, they find Sandy and Ken peering thru some peepholes in one wall, and are signaled to be silent. Ian joins them but can see nothing. Soon a swelling blare of unseen trumpets, far out on the plain, rises and then falls silent. Outside the monastery gates, a messenger, mounted on a camel, shouts that he has a message for their companion, Pan Chi-Lou. Covering him with their rifles, the adventurers admit him to the monastery; his camel kneels and he dismounts. The messenger is an immensely fat Chinese man, armed with a large curved knife, and he has words for Pan Chi-Lou alone. This is awkward because nobody at the gate is sure where he is, but Reilly, Walker, and Murray re-enter the monastery to seek him out. This time, they find the candles all extinguished, and are more puzzled than before.

Meanwhile out in the country, Jadev, the High Priest's spy, meets up with Benar, the genuine aged fakir, and Elaka, the wild dog. Elaka hastens back to the wild dog den to summon aid. Benar is brought to meet the High Priest, who listens to his story and offers his assistance. The High Priest then returns to the Temple of the Jungle Goddess, slips behind a curtain and exits by a hidden door and a secret passageway, directly to the Rajah's palace.
Back at the palace, Sandor's disguise has enabled him to get close to a sentinel, and knock him out and tie him up. This spear-man had been guarding a secret door, known to Sandor, who now discards his disguise and prowls the secret passageway. Hearing someone approach, he crouches on a stairway and waits. A robed figure carrying a small chest sneaks by, stops, pulls out a ponderous key, and opens a nearby doorway, and leaves. Sandor then springs to the doorway, but as he does so, a thrown dagger thunks into the oak door, missing Sandor's head by an inch!
