|'The Correct Way to Kill'
by Brian Clemens
Steed changes partner - Emma joins the enemy
When two enemy agents are murdered in London by a pair of well-dressed, impeccably-mannered hitmen, Steed immediately falls under suspicion by his rival agents. After he manages to convince the other side that a third party is responsible, an uneasy truce is called and an impromptu agent exchange program drawn up in order to keep an eye on one another. While Steed is partnered with a lethal novice agent named Olga, Mrs. Peel joins agent Ivan. When the two parties attempt to uncover the real killers, the body-littered trail leads to an umbrella shop whose wares are being shipped to a chiropodist, and S.N.O.B. Inc. - Sociability, Nobility, Omnipotence, Breeding, Inc. - a gentlemen's training school whose motto is ‘Seek, hate, kill!’
