"That mini-transceiver we planted in your neck for the Gienah job," said Stetson. "It's still there and functioning. Anything happens around you, we hear it."

Brilliant agent Lewis Orne uncovers a secret political organization of brilliant women. Why this organization is dangerous, and why this discovery is relevant, is never fully explained. A waste of time, not much here to recommend.
