I’m enjoying the story but that I’ve accepted that it’s not a gun-running adventure. So far, I’ve managed to keep up with the characters and it’s fair to assume the listeners won’t be challenged.
Is Monsieur Ortega the boy who threw stones at Do~na Rita?

PL of Chapters 18-20 is fine.
Thank you as always for the PL, Susanne. Like you, I'm guessing the chilly, chilling, Monsieur Ortega is the stone-thrower, but what's not 100% clear to me is whether "Monsieur George" has figured this out. Surely so, one would think - but unless I'm mistaken, Conrad is deliberately placing a little doubt in our minds, to keep us turning the page. Should know the answer soon, I imagine.

Thanks again Susanne.

Conrad certainly knows how to create a sustained 'moment' in his fiction, drawing out the tension inherent in what is, in effect, one long scene. It's got its bizarre aspects, but it's an incredible bravura performance on Conrad's part, I do think.

I have now uploaded:
Section 24: https://librivox.org/uploads/lynnet/arrowofgold_24_conrad_128kb.mp3 (18:09)
Section 25: https://librivox.org/uploads/lynnet/arrowofgold_25_conrad_128kb.mp3 (30:14)

And now all has been revealed .... well, to me, anyway :) ... though Conrad sure keeps us guessing right to the end. What a writer, is all I can say.

And you've been flying with me, Susanne - quite a gallop! You've been a DEDICATED proof listener in both senses of that word, and I've really appreciate your help with this project, with all its oddities.

PL of the remaining sections is okay and so we're at THE END. :clap:

I really enjoyed the story and the reading and i'm glad to have discovered at different side of Joseph Conrad.

Peter, let me know when you record another project and I'll be happy to DPL again.

Whoo! You should be careful what you wish for, Susanne (!), but thank you very much, and I will be happy to give you first option on DPL for whatever my next project will be.

I enjoyed the story, too, and I strongly agree with you that this is quite a different side of Joseph Conrad showing through here. As always, one would love to know what (if any) of his own real life experiences are being played out here. A question one is never supposed to ask of fiction authors, of course - but still, I always wonder.
