Topic: Big Spy, Little Spy
Big spies in novels, movies, etc., that glorify the spy who saves the world... Bond, Ludlum characters, etc... But there is the little spy, the man or woman who pretends to be a customer at a large store, but is really spying on the employee for the company. Talk about "toe the line" or else. What an interesting character study: weasel or company savior or ?
Here is a character who sees into various individuals personalities and problems, people who must follow the company policies, but what else might this company spy see? When you look too closely at any individual the lines get blurred, as everyone has a secret. I was thinking a company spy might uncover a murder/murderer and then this exposed murderer realizes he (or she) is discovered then learns who the company spy is, or thinks he knows and then...
Any books or films run this type of plot?
