AFTER THE SHOW

                                                 

PART 1

The 1932 Paris premier of “Mata Hari” was like a flame to a moth for every female spy, thief or   intelligence agent in Europe.

Europe was smoldering with only the slightest spark needed to begin another great war.. The Bruening Government in Germany had just resigned. An upstart with a mustache was pushing to become the next German Chancellor.  Japan was completing the withdrawal of its troops from Shanghai only days after the assassination of Japanese Premier Tsuyoshi Inukai.

The smell of espionage was as pervasive as the fragrance of the flower shops along the Seine. Ahhh, but Paris, Paris that spring night was as lovely as the ladies nestled in their opera boxes waiting in secluded anticipation for Garbo’s greatest performance. Samantha found it odd that each of the absurdly expensive boxes was occupied by only one exceptionally beautiful woman. But then ... so was hers.  

Samantha had seen most of the women coming and going from the suites at the hotel. It was of course “the” place to stay in Paris.  But she knew them better from the files kept at the Academy. The German was of course The Baroness Von Striker. Her family had a rather extensive file. The Countess was in her box as was that thief from Spain. She also could catch a glimpse of a dark haired beauty she did not know. She wondered if perhaps it was the French agent she was to meet at the masquerade party... “After the Show”.
