"In spy terminology honey trap has been used by Soviet and Eastern European intelligence services defining a woman entrapping businessmen and officials from the West in sexual liasions to retrieve intelligence and subserviance." –quoted from: http://www.answers.com/topic/honey-trap

Peter Ashton is a Grade 1 Intelligence Officer of the British S.I.S. Unfortunately, he has to answer to Jill Sheridan, his highly intelligent ex-lover who managed to worm her way up to become his immediate superior. Gender sensitivity is not his problem though. His problem is Jill's ego and her preoccupation with safe-guarding her position which clouds her judgment and once in a while puts him in a precarious position. His counter-parts in other departments refer to him as a "loose-cannon" due to his unorthodox methods of solving problems. Unlike James Bond 007, Peter Ashton carries no weapons for his job. He's a married man and would rather work 9 to 5 and looks forward to a vacation with his wife once in a while. His survival on the job depends on his sharp mind, accurate memory, connections, quick reflexes and lots of luck. And also his ability to stay out of the honey trap.
