The Engine of Our Ruin (a comedy)

In a hotel suite somewhere in the Middle East, United States diplomat Charles Manning-Jourdain meets with delegates of that nation in the hope that a simple trade agreement will bring their two countries closer together. But this routine mission quickly becomes an international incident thanks to an idealistic interpreter with an agenda of her own; a belligerent official who brings a rumor of war; and Charles’s own staffers, whose attempts to cover up an after-hours party might just topple a foreign government.
