ABOUT THE SERIES

       Agent M is an agent with the British Secret Service.
       The "M" stands for Max, itself short for Maxine though she reminds people regularly (and curtly if they do not get it the first time) that she does not like being called Maxine. Max it is.
       Her exact age is not specified but she is likely in her very early 30s at the most and more likely in her late 20's. This is based on the "years" of service she has already performed. In the period she has managed to create an impressive record of successes and a reputation for getting the job done. Not, however, that that seems to matter to her bosses for no matter how well she has done in the past, there is more than a bit of 'but can she really do the job.'
       The job in question is largely the same - eliminating the enemies of the British government. In most cases it appears to be foreign problems but criminals sometimes rise to the occasion. To achieve the success she has done so far, she has trained to the point of exceptional skill.
       Many times in the pages of her recorded adventures, mention is made of her incredible beauty and her dynamite shape, making her irresistible to her targets and getting them actually anxious for her to be near. Once there, her athleticism and her training in all forms of combat and hand-to-hand fighting make her a most deadly weapon. Add to that the fact that behind her gorgeous looks is a brain that can out-think most people and her usefulness to any mission is incredible.
       Helping her on occasion is the equally beautiful and resourceful Virginia.

MY COMMENTS

       I had some major problems with this series and I really, really wanted to like it. The covers are terrific eye-candy even for an old duffer like myself so I was hoping that the books would be a delightful. They were not. The writing is not bad by any means. The problem is with the logic of the stories.
       Max is an agent hardened by many years and many, many missions of death and she still can blush and get flummoxed with getting personal. That did not make sense.
       Max is a killer who can and will dispatch people at the blink of an eye but she seems to waver quite a bit. Now, thinking before taking a life is a good thing but not the way it is written. It just reads wrong.
       And worst of all is that Max is said to have killed "hundreds" of enemies of the country. This was written, not a dialogue where you can discount it as hyperbole or bragging or just plain lying, but in prose as a statement of fact. The believability factor is far beyond my ability and this is a guy who has enjoyed vampire and werewolf spy stories.
