When Inspector Kit was just a little kitty, she desperately wanted to be a spy - jetting off to foreign countries, thwarting international diamond thieves.
And now the big day has arrived - her very first mission. And it's rather disappointing. This was not she had in mind - a grubby room somewhere in America.
The room's seen better days for sure - there's not even a stunning view to compensate. The first window shows a brick wall, the second a dead-end street and the third a bit of sky with the top of a billboard.
As for lasers, codebooks and electronic forcefields, forget it. There's a very old map of America and a flipchart with an impressive obscene doodle on it.
In the corner, there's a dusty bookcase with a few old books falling to bits - no-one has touched them for years.
The extremely promising selection is The Life History of the Louse (with pictures-1974 edition), Chart-Topping Hits (1977 edition), How To Keep Your Hamster Happy (1976 edition), Fun and Easy Codes for Kids (mouldy cover only).
Joining them on the shelf are a few rusty staples, some bits of old string and half a dozen drawing pins.
And the mission instructions on a piece of paper torn from the flipchart.
NUMBER 1 MISSION.
Find the state that the bomb has been planted in - X marks the spot.
That's all there is. Apart from a coffee stain. And another obscene doodle.
This spying lark isn't so glamorous as it seems. But the problem has to be solved...
