A soap opera about life and love at an American Embassy

Wally Weston is a pen-name for Harry Lime. Harry has 8 other pen-names but this story called "Diplomatic Affair" will most likely be the only story under this pen-name. It depends on the status of the Harry Lime stories which are undergoing revision and updating for the period 2011-2014. The Embassy of the story is an actual Embassy. Most of the characters are loosely based on real people and the story is a more in-depth look at the Cold War scenario of Harry Lime's previous series titled "The British Ambassador's Secretary". This story will be comprised of 30 chapters of about 2,500 words in each chapter. That would result in a 75K story of about 175 pages of content. The writing will stretch the limits of timeframe and geography and in many instances the "action" will seem far-fetched. There is a certain line between reality and fiction that most readers can recognize as poetic license and make allowances for interest generating devices. Some of the actual happenings before, during, and after this particular moment in time are even more bizarre than the fictional descriptions which only underscores the truth in the old adage, "Truth is stranger than fiction".
