All of thisto the befuddlement and bemusement of Intercom's editor, oneCarter who has never met his new employers and who has nonotion of the real nature of the SESAME facts and figures.Carter, who is not used to taking either the paper or himselfseriously, suddenly finds himself the hottest property intown...which is security minded Geneva, Switzerland. With theKGB and the CIA tripping over each other in their attempts toclose SESAME. Written after the fact, it's an intriguingaffair to remember.
