An Amiable Charlatan

An Amiable Charlatan by Edward Phillips Oppenheim
By: (1866-1946)

An Englishman is enjoying his dinner at Stephano's, at which he is a regular diner. A man enters quickly, sits at his table, starts eating his food, and hands him a packet underneath the table! So begins Paul Walmsley's acquaintance - and adventures - with American adventurer Joseph H. Parker and his lovely daughter, Eve. (Intro by TriciaG)

Note that there is an alternate reading of section 8. Both are excellent renditions, so enjoy either or both of them.
