    The Tomb of Ishtar


    Dear Sir/Madam,

    First of all, well done! If you've decoded this letter then you're clearly the person we're after! Sorry for the cloak and dagger games, but we had to be sure those Nazi swine couldn't intercept the message.

    I've been instructed by Her Majesty's Government to put together a team for a top secret mission behind enemy lines. You'll find all the necessary travel papers and expenses enclosed with this letter, as well as a full pardon for your crimes should you need it.

    I'd be very grateful if you'd all join me for drinks and nibbles at my mansion in Oxford. The mission briefing will be at 2000hrs on June 16th.

    The mission is codenamed Operation Ishtar, and it's sure to be a jolly difficult yarn. But Her Majesty's Government has promised you all a very substantial reward for the risks you'll be undertaking.

    If you're interested, I'll have a glass of sherry waiting for you!

    Oh, and be a good chap and destroy this letter once you're done reading it!

    Yours sincerely,

    Professor Randolph Stern,
    Blexford Manor, Oxford, England
