In the game of spying, breaking rules is a rule in itself. Ostensibly, field operatives must always obey orders from headquarters. But sometimes an operative will decide when to bend or break the rules. Headquarters and the field regularly engage in an ongoing battle over control. The bosses must always follow the law. Field operatives, however, can stretch the rules as needed. Ultimately, only the case officer can decide when to change the game, and he will certainly do so if lives are at risk. The woman wrapped in royal red is the power of government. But in the end, her pawn may choose to make the move himself.
