Doyle is uneasy when Cowley orders him and Bodie to draw out a Soviet blackmailer, but even he doesn't suspect just how wrong things are about to go.
I owe enormous thanks to Callisto (callistosh65) for doing the first beta on the story, Draycevixen (draycevixen) for several invaluable plot consults and pointing out where the story was going awry, Halo (halotolerant) who did a final beta on the (almost) complete story and helped rid it of any unfortunate Canadianisms and dodgy assumptions, and m. butterfly for performing her usual impeccable copyedit. Any remaining mistakes or problems are mine own.
Huge thanks also to Molly, who produced such wonderful art for the story.
And finally, massive appreciation to Draycevixen (draycevixen), SC Fossil (sc_fossil), Norfolkdumpling (norfolkdumpling), Saintvic (saintvic), and Sineala (sineala), who cheerfully signed on as co-mods for the Big Bang and made the whole thing possible for another year. A huge hug to all of you! It really wouldn't have happened without you.
This is the latest instalment of my Comfort and Joy series. There are some references to and characters from the earlier stories, but it does stand alone.
