In a few minutes Kathleen had to meet with George. She twirled an enameled pen — her farewell gift from Rodney. His field reports lit up dots all across the map of Europe. Prague, Paris, Padua. Out in the field. Where the action is.

Being an African-American didn’t hinder her as much as being a woman. Even though almost all the old-timers had worked with women in the field or at their cover assignments, they thought of women as order-followers, not order-givers.

It was damn hard to find just the right tone, just the right words, whenever she wanted to get a point across. She had to remind herself not to speak too often, too forcefully, too whatever.

She was determined to make herself an integral part of this operation going down today. Prove that she could handle sensitive situations.
She had to — if she ever wanted to get a field assignment.
George signaled for Charles to take a seat, watching as Charles unbuttoned his navy blazer before sitting. Ah, yes, the blazer with the Yale sculling team buttons. Beth Parsons had gone to Penn. Had Charles chosen this outfit to silently cue her in to his superiority?
