The Smuggler
 
Chapter 1: A man in a hurry.
 
Harker was rich. He wrote a poem addressed to J.S Fame.
Ezra called him asking for something. Later, Ezra and some men with guns came to the hut and asked him many questions that he couldn't answer, that's why they hit him very hard.  
Chapter 2: At the frontier.
 
Inspector Roland called the customs officers and asked them to watch Fame.  After a while Fame arrived at the frontier post, he said he was crossing the frontier on business as he usually did two or three times a week, he had nothing to declare. The officers searched his car and found nothing so he got into his car and drove away.   

Chapter 3: Strange meeting
 
As soon as he left the frontier, Fame went to Harker´s hut in the forest.  It was late. We whistled three times but there was no answer so he went inside. He didn´t see anything at first but then he noticed the shadow of a man hanging from the ceiling. It was Harker.

Chapter 4: A narrow escape

 
He (Fame) cut the rope and Harker fell down, there was blood om his shirt but he was not hit. There was also a broken bottle on the floor, it was obvious that he had fought with somebody before dying. Fame found the poem on the floor, it was addressed to him, it had to be a message but he couldn't understand it. Suddenly he heard some voices and some men came into the hut, they were looking for the poem. He managed to escape through the window.

They followed him, shooting at him with their guns, but he could get into his car and drove away at high speed.

CHAPTER 5: A NIGHT IN DARNA

He drove to Darna to the Garden Hotel where he used to stay. He thought about Harker. He had been murdered, he read the poem again, then he decided to ring Zara and told her about Harker. She was shocked; they agreed to meet the following morning. He listened to the news on the radio and learned that the golden Egyptian head had been stolen from the museaum and Inspector Roland was investigating the case.

CHAPTER 6: ON THE TERRACE

Fame made the copy of the poem and gave it to Zara. Zara told him to go on with their business even when Harker was dead. She ordered him to go to Don’s hide-out. Zara told Fame that Harker and Ezra (who used to be part of their hang) had argued some days before. A bald waiter with a scar came to their table and told Fame that he had a phone call. But there was nobody on the phone so he went back to the terrace but Zara was not there and the bald waiter wasn’t there either. Just then he heard an American car escaping, he ran to the edge and saw the bald waiter driving the car and Zara inside it.

CHAPTER 7: KEEPING AN APPOINTMENT

Fame jumped into his car and followed the other one, he saw the car number (ZX 425) but then it disappeared; Fame went on the road because Don’s hide-out was ahead. On the side of the road he found Zara, she was pale, she had given him the poem but Fame had another copy so they didn’t worry. They went on to Don’s hide-out (sort of farm: shed/ yard/house). Don took the car to the shed and they went to the house. They told Don about Harker, he was terribly surprised. Then two cars came in, they were police cars with Inspector Roland and four big policemen in them.

CHAPTER 8: INSPECTOR ROLAND

The policemen searched the house. Fame and his friends knew Inspector Roland. Fame asked them what they were looking for but they didn’t answer. There were two cars in the shed, one of them had its boot locked. The policemen searched them but found nothing. One policeman was pointing his gun at them. Inspector Roland hit Fame on the face because he wanted him to talk.

CHAPTER 9: THE PHOTOGRAPH

Inspector Roland hit Fame, He wanted to know where the golden head of Chefren IV was hidden. He thought they were the thieves. Fame said they were not the thieves but the Inspector Roland gave him a photo of the museaum with some men surrounding the head, one of them was Harker. On the back...
