The tall man in grey was sitting at his usual place, the corner table facing the main entrance by the window. The mousy lady-librarian was sure the book he was working with was The Mystery of Mr. Bernard Brown (1896) by Phillips-Oppenheim.
She waited till he walked out, and then walked to the shelf marked spy-fiction; the book was in its exact spot. She took the book home.
Tracing the erased pencil marks, she prepared a note and posted it the following morning.
Its deciphering in a backroom in Washington precipitated a flurry of calls between White house and Pentagon.

Words  ~100



Thanks for the prompt Rochelle Wisoff-Fields. SHALOM.

  1. This is s great little spy story! The mousy librarian is an effective player in the game. Her age, demeanor and occupation make her “invisible” and make her actions appear normal. Well done!

  2. Dear Yarnspinner, Outstanding – Mystery at the Library! I worked for the Johnson County Library from 3 years and I really enjoyed it. Weird things happened sometimes and it’s a wonderful place to people watch. I was working there during the 911 attacks and became more suspicious afterwards. I think we all paid more attention to our surroundings afterward. Gread story – and fun! Nan 🙂

  3. It’s always the quiet ones you need to watch out for. This is a great start to something – I would love to know what the White House and Pentagon concluded and what happens next.

I love arguments
