    I think the chase reffer to a thief man or a criminal man or a thief.

    Still need more context: What are they passengers in? How is the vehicle that they are in related to the chase?
    I'm not a teacher, but I write for a living. Please don't ask me about 2nd conditionals, but I'm a safe bet for what reads well in (American) English.

    That makes no sense at all.

    ***** NOT A TEACHER *****


    Do you mean that a criminal is on a ship with many other passengers and that a detective on a smaller boat is

    chasing after the bigger ship? Well, then, your sentence would mean something like:

    Are the passengers excited as they watch the detective's boat get closer and closer to their ship (with the bad guy

    aboard)?

    Note that there is no such thing as a "detectiver".
    Remember - correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing make posts much easier to read.
