Book Summary

Hiding intelligence clues in deliberately bad poetry that he writes from his vantage point in France, undercover agent Augustus Whittlesby is scathingly mocked by an American envoy's niece, Emma, whose favor he is forced to gain in order to collect information about a top-secret device being shown at a local house party.
