That wasn't The Truth about Cushgar, though, was it? Two Agents working
together would have been Padagan, who was from non-human stock (as opposed
to Zamm [I might be misremembering her name] who was a Daya-Bal [IIRC]. I
don't remember the name of the Zone Agent that Padagan in effect interned
with.... and I'm getting more sure that that was the story with the crazed
rulers, because that Zone Agent, had been primed to be CAREFUL around the
fellow. Also -- but no, I don';t want to give the story away.
