A Communist Bloc operative has been arrested for the assassination of U.S. Senator William Townsend. Briggs & Co.'s mission is to prove the operative did NOT kill the senator on behalf of his government. The prime suspect is businessman R.J. McMillian, Townsend's primary backer. The Secretary believes McMillian killed Townsend to create a martyr and to create momentum for a preemptive war with the Soviet Bloc. Briggs concocts an elaborate scheme which calls for Rollin to play the role of a con who springs the operative from jail, Cinammon to pretend to be a journalist and Briggs himself to pose as a painter. But, at the climatic moment, there's a twist that even Briggs doesn't anticipate. Written by
