A humor-mystery short story of 41 pages. A quirky newspaper columnist suspects an editor of being a spy. However, he learns the editor is far worse than that. The result is a mystery and thriller romp with a humorous touch in which the columnist encounters murder, a voodoo doctor, two U.S. presidents (sort of), kidnapping, conspiracies, a homeless ex-congresswoman, and even Billy the Kid's great-great-grandson.
