Quote from my book Gifts of the Gods

“Ken looked at Stephen and offered him a cigarette, even though he knew full well that Stephen didn’t smoke. But such were the laws of hospitality and respect between employees of the Central Intelligence Agency of the United States.
– But I’ll smoke,” said Warren, cutting off the tip of his cigarette and looking piercingly at his interlocutor.
He put the cigar to his lips and lit it spectacularly with a lighter. It was an old habit of his. It was something he used to do when he was a young man and did serious investigative and operational work himself. He had changed, but some of his old habits remained.
– I hear you’re going on vacation.
– I’m ready to sign the papers, but you have to do one little errand for me.
Stephen tensed up. When Warren offered to run a small errand, such errands sometimes stretched over several months. And one of his little errands had even stretched over several years and had most recently ended with the capture of a group of Latin American criminals carrying a large shipment of drugs into the United States from Mexico. And so the vacation trip to the Maldives was once again postponed.”
