In the heart of high-flying cold-war London lives the Queen's MI5. Deep currents of conflicting emotions churn beneath the surface of suave spydom. Old memories cause some to cast suspicious eyes at comrades, while one has no old memories. Among the spies, one is beautiful and determined to marry. Another is handsome and determined to remain a bachelor. Together they are embroiled in attempted assassinations, kidnapping, psychological warfare and romance, all conducted with a stiff upper lip and wry British humor. Because life in a small town can sometimes be humdrum for a senior citizen, Rita Nesbitt loves living vicariously in the dangerous and adventurous lives of her characters. She also loves seeing them come to the knowledge of Jesus. Writing is a joy and a challenge for her. One challenge she met winning an honorable mention for a short story in the '07 Writer's Digest Writing Competition. For the past twenty-two years she has written a humorous word definition column for several weekly newspapers. That, she says, is why she can't be serious about most things - too much in life to laugh at.
