I'm actually working on a novella at the moment titled "Epidemic". It's about an outbreak of tuberculosis in the slums of the capital of a fictional country and the priestesses/nurses of the local religious establishment's efforts to treat and help those afflicted. It's told from the viewpoint of a young fledging priestess, Sophia Breckridge, and focuses primarily of her thoughts and feelings regarding the events she remembers from the outbreak. It's deliberately a very sad story, and very likely quite disturbing when Sophia recalls certain patients, such as an emaciated and dying pregnant woman. Kind of goes with the territory of TB before there was a reliable treatment or cure. There's still plenty of relief - even in serious works, a bit of humor never hurts - but even then I can tell everyone the ending's a bit of a downer.

I like the Culper Ring idea. I can totally see a Government Agency using Celebrities as Agents. Who better to get into an exclusive event hosted by a nefarious individual than a well known international figure.
