Chapter 24- I only see suspense in Jim's pretending to be a runaway slave (tied in ropes) and then being painted blue to alleviate suspiscion...... he's the only one I worry about.

Chapter 25- The Duke and the King could be seen to be in danger when Doc Robinson attempts to expose them, but the girls never waiver in their loyalty to the con-men.

Chapter 26- Joanna catches Huck in a number of lies..... Mary Jane stops her in her tracks and tells her she's rude. Mary jane saves Huck the same way she has saved the others.

Chapter 27- Huck takes the stolen money and is frightened he'll be caught with it. No worries...... he buries the money with the dead body.

Chapter 29- The Duke and the King can't get away fast enough after the money has been found and everyone realizes they're frauds. No worries....... they get away!
