Адаптированная книга на английском языке «Newspaper Chase by John Escott». Аудиокнига на английском.
The time is one o’clock in the morning. The place is the Ritesville town art gallery. A window opens and a man comes in. His name is Harry
Black, and he is a thief. It is dark in the art gallery, but Harry has a light. He looks across the room at a painting.
«There it is!» he says.
Harry moves quickly across the room. He stands and looks at the painting.
«A million dollars for this?» he thinks. «I don’t understand it.»
But he takes a knife from his coat. Then he takes the painting very, very slowly from its frame.
Harry goes back across the room to the window, but he walks into a table. There is a beautiful blue glass vase
on the table. It falls on the floor and breaks into a hundred pieces.
Harry smiles. «Is that a million-dollar vase?» he thinks.
«It isn’t now!»
He runs across the pieces of glass to the window.
Harry has a room in Mrs. Allen’s rooming house. He goes quietly up to his room and closes the door.
Mrs. Allen and her daughter, Janey, are sleeping. They don’t hear him.
In his room, Harry takes the painting from his bag. He puts it in a newspaper, then he puts the newspaper
under his bed.
