Once we knew the number of the room where the meeting took place, and after a small bribe to the receptionists, we were able to go down to the old register where, among dusty filing cabinets, we found the names of the oldest guests. Our surprise was great when we noticed the alias of one of the most famous art dealers of the France of that time among its pages, Gustav Dumont.
Would that thief want to get his hands on the treasure to take it out of the Spanish borders? We also discovered that one of the safes in the reception area related to this dealer had not yet been claimed or opened and that it had held something inside for more than 70 years.
We needed the combination to open it. After studying Gustav’s way of working, we discovered that the names of the operations always referred to the place where his stolen antiquities would leave for, but would that also be the key to the safe?
The treasure would undoubtedly leave from the coasts of San Sebastian and to prepare its departure, perhaps, besides studying the area, Gustav would not hesitate to talk and make friends with anyone to draw his plan and achieve his purpose… This sand is famous for its surfers, who travel from one end to the other of the Basque-French coasts to enjoy their favorite sport… Would they perhaps have something to do with the destination where the treasure would go?
