My new job title was ‘Secret agent’, and my first task to decipher the coded instructions that detailed my contract. TPR was also appointed at the same time. Our cover story was that we were academics who worked in a outlying suburb of Edinburgh.
Our first mission was to uncover the plans of the other employees who were plotting against our new boss. When this woman intimated to me that I had been selected for my role not only for my high intelligence, but because I was known to work beyond 8pm each night, I considered switching side to join the plotters myself.
