There is no summary for it, anywhere, thats what im trying to look for too cuz my exams on it tomorrow, but really what its all about is a group of american cigarette sellers, who are poor and they are all trying to get out of poverty, by selling cigarettes until one day this police man diguises as a buyer of cigarettes, named l'homme in the beginning of part one and in part two we learn that his name is ledoux. Ledoux or l'homme follows Passe-Partout one of the careless man of the group and does not follow the rules of the chef since he is jealous that Ciboulette loves him, Because Passe-partout obviously loves her back,but seh doesnt :(. and Passe-Partout gives this policeman a portfolio of all their costumers. Bad bad.. so they get caught, no but htey are being suspected and are later investigated on their case, each one following, moineau, tit-noir, ciboulette, Tarzan and Passe-partout by three policeman: one is le Chef (the chief), ledoux and roger. (this is how part 2 begins). So for each one of the people, le Chef has a technique for revealing by asking them the same questions and by switching around their words, while roger on the other hand is just going hard and playing bad-cop on them and Ledoux is just there being mean & sarcastic especially to moineau :( and kinda going hard on them. All of the men reveal something, but Ciboulette faints, she's really melodramatic. Moineau at first, doesn't want to reveal anything and plays it cool and smart, while Ledoux ridicules him for beign stupid ! :(. We learn that he likes comic books. By le Chef's trick he reveals that Tarzan is the (le) chef (the leader of the "contreband"/ or their leader). Tsk, tsk. But he also says that he loves him :) aww. Then Moineau is finished, and Tit-Noir comes in and like Moineau he plays it cool and smart, which he really is and he makes many jokes to the questions and prolongs them. He reveals his real name which is Arsene Larue adn that his parents were poor and that he would later want to have a good life with/for his family. Again le Chef uses his technique by asking the same questions again and again and Tit-Noir accidentally reveals that they actually sell cigarettes. During the interrogation, le Chef speaks to a policeman named Spencer about a police at the board (boarder line) who was shot. And I may continue my answer later, but as for now I hope this has been useful for you (somehow) but one tip, DO NOT USE A TRANSLATOR it never help you imrpove at all i used to do it and as soon as i stopped and started using a <>, i improved in french and now i can understand and converse i was just looking this book up in english because too lazy to make notes but now im basically making notes by answering your question, thanks for that. So, i know is really boring it still is for me, but i'll try to keep up with it, so i could get a job and I hope you'll start using just a dictionary, good luck and thanks. :)
