Madam Engadine and her celebrated parties. The Prisoner was a regular attendant of these parties, I wonder why? And according to research conducted by No.2, it would seem that the Prisoner, having handed in his resignation, was going to make a bee-line for Paris so to attend one of Madame Engadine's so called celebrated parties!
So what was Madame Engadines reasons for organising these regular parties? Was it for her own gratification, to be at the centre of society in Paris? Perhaps she was looking for another husband! And what happened to all her other husbands? Did they divorce her, or did they all die?! Perhaps Madame Engadine likes to bring people together!
And the Prisoner, why did he attend these parties. Was it for business or pleasure?
I should imagine that all manner of people were invited to attend these parties. Embassy Ambassadors. Possibly politicians, diplomats. People of influence and power. The rich and famous, the poor and infamous! People with information, and those looking for information. Such a party as this would be full of social intrigue, as well as international! Take 'A' for example. He found what he was looking for, and he was saving himself money into the bargain! And then there is 'B', and with the Prisoner, that makes Madame Engadine parties a hive of spies and agents from all sides! If the Prisoner-No.6 was going to sell out, then I can think of no better place than one of Engadine's parties to make the first contact! One other thing, have you noticed how many guests at the party acknowledge the Prisoner? He seems to have made many friends and contacts in Paris, and appears to be very well liked, and thought of. Unlike 'A,' an oily man, who can slip in and out of a party without hardly being noticed! Madam Engadine never liked the man, and the Prisoner has no regard for the man either, not since his defection! Yes, I'm quite sure you could meet all kinds of people at one of Madame Engadines celebrated parties.
Be seeing you
No. 6 going to this or: that kind of party, most likely a social event, would further indicate that he wasn't just one of the countless "raincoat agents" with dark glasses but a high-rank official with ample knowledge of and insight into intelligence services of many countries. Thus a delicate position and also a political one. And the reason why they simply couldn't get rid of him by killing him. - BCNU!ReplyDelete
An interesting comment which cannot be denied. It would seem our old friend No.6, moved in high circles.
You can bet he did. But he'd certainly act and behave not like, say, James Bond. - BCNU!ReplyDelete
No, more like John Drake!
