In a quiet side street in Spite
The Cheesemonger's shop in Spite peddles foul-smelling fungal ooze that has never been near any dairy…
Her appearance is perfect for Spite. A ragged old dress the colour of rotting brie, and red eyes that look like she's been crying. She has two potential jobs for you: one stealthy, one direct.

Volunteer for the stealthy job
You'd rather not be seen. It makes it much harder to stab you in the face.
Volunteer for the more direct job
You'd rather not have to skulk around in the dark.
Robbing the cartographer
Does the Russian Cartographer ever leave his neat little garret?

You will have to snatch the map from under his nose.
Take the… tablet?
The Cheesemonger neglected to mention that the 'map' is a twenty-pound clay affair. The Russian Cartographer has completed his copy. You need them both.

Beating the Importer
The Swedish Importer has a shop tucked away in one of Spite's great market halls. She often works late.

A personal service
One should attend to beatings personally. It shows care and dedication.

The Ambassador's valet
The letter certainly bears the Cheesemonger's handwriting and salty perfume.
'I want someone escorted to my shop. He is currently employed as a valet to the Ambassador. Bring him to me from the palace, today. An account needs to be settled. Kill him if he won't come along.'
The valet will be at the Shuttered Palace. You should go there.
Having second thoughts
Is the Cheesemonger allowing her feelings to interfere with business? Who is this woman, really?
Unlocked with an agent of the Cheesemonger 12
Her motives are none of your business. She pays well and the work is interesting. This is all that matters.
Perhaps you should find out more. Before her past gets in the way of your future.

Money, as ever, has the most eloquent voice
Perhaps the spies clustered around the carnival could be persuaded to accept a few pearls.

Do the work yourself
You're a spy, aren't you? Do some spying. This could be risky if she finds out, though. Just how good are you? You don't want to get this one wrong.
