Mr. Wormold, a vacuum cleaner salesman, was short of money. His daughter had reached an expensive age -- so he accepted Hawthorne's offer of $300-plus a month and became Agent 59200/5, M.I.6's man in Havana. To keep the job, Wormold pretends to recruit sub-agents and sends fake stories. Then the stories start becoming disturbingly true. "From the Trade Paperback edition."Product Description:
