“It was a dark and stormy night as the midnight oil continued to burn in the lavish office located on the top floor of Vauxhall Cross. ''C'' scanned the latest dispatch from the China office as the smoke of his B&H Silver mingled with the steam from his freshly poured cup of PG Tip.

The broad smile had vanished.”
