Maracas (John and Gwen Bagni)

On discovering the ship he is serving on is carrying contraband, our hero decides to cut himself in for a piece of the action. This allows him to appreciate a sequence of double-crosses from the inside.

Kind of a downer (but part of the general pattern that cheaters never prosper in this series). The portrayal of the South Americans was ... unfortunate and given the date, possibly based on the bandits from The Treasure of the Sierra Madre.

There sure are a lot of stories involving ships in this series.
