Your biggest problem, which will last you until the end of your days, is you’re
not going to be able to tell anyone what you do or what you’ve done. It

they’re entitled to know; they’re in on the secret.
might just be that they have the sort of clearance that entitles them

that your best friend in the world and the people with whom you work
and on whom you rely should be treated as mortal enemies because what
