Summary (From the publisher):

As Napoleon and Ilya watched the filmed interrogation of a THRUSH agent, Waverly explained, "This man has revealed that he was distributing information to THRUSH investors on gold stocks in Africa. When he said to buy or sell, they did - and at the price he specified."

"But that isn't illegal," Solo protested.

"Not in itself," said Waverly. "But THRUSH's plan is an international conspiracy, originating in England, to manipulate stocks in this country by using the five-hour time difference between London and New York. They seem very close to cornering the entire market on the gold reserves of one of the African nations. Can you imagine what THRUSH could do with that kind of power in the explosive situation in Africa?"

As the two U.N.C.L.E. agents nodded grimly, Waverly said, "Then you know why the safety of the world may depend on stopping THRUSH's scheme!"
