Full Episode Summary

Noah wants Al to borrow the unpublished memoirs of The Duchess of Lambrose, so they can be microfilmed, and then returned, without her knowing. The Duchess was one of the most sought after women of her time, and her memoirs deal with the most important men in Europe and America of the past forty years; kings, prime ministers, generals and dictators. The memoirs could prove embarrassing to the west, as some of her admirers were important American diplomats. Noah wants the microfilm in order to read the memoirs before they are published, and find out just what the diplomats whispered into her ear. The S.I.A. wants to make sure that there are no incriminating secrets in the memoirs that may jeopardize the security of the western world. The memoirs are to be published after the duchess' death, but Noah suspects that the enemies of the U.S., who want them published now, will try to accelerate the publishing date, by "knocking her off!"moreless
