SLOCUM AND THE WIDOW KATE
The Widow Kate in this story is not some old, wrinkly woman as Slocum first suspects when he takes the job of escorting her, sight unseen. She winds up having to use her wiles to “distract” him to keep secret the real purpose of Slocum’s employment.
Someone once told me that they thought that Martin Cruz Smith, well-known author of “Gorky Park” had written this one but they couldn’t be 100% certain.
