|'Honey for the Prince'
by Brian Clemens
When Steed and Mrs. Peel investigate the death of an agent, they trace the murder to a honey manufacturer and an agency called the ‘Q.Q.F’ - Quite Quite Fantastic - which claims to fulfil the fantasies of its clients. Meanwhile, Prince Ali of Baravia has arrived in the country in order to finalise a deal that will provide oil concessions to Britain in exchange for their protection. While Steed plays indoor-cricket with the prince, Mrs. Peel is ‘sold’ into his harem; they soon discover that the losing competitor for the oil concession deal is planning to use the ‘Q.Q.F.’ to devise a plot to assassinate the prince for them…
