Scott Wolfe is an analyst turned agent with the CIA.
The promo for the recorded adventures of this individual states "Scott Wolfe is a talented computer and electronics security specialist and an avid rock climber. He's a pretty typical twenty-something; he likes to party, he's bad at relationships, and he is a bit more adventurous than common sense would dictate. He does have one trait that makes him atypical, though. That gift is the secret to his professional success — and it comes in quite handy when a rash decision turns his life upside down." That does a fairly good job letting you know the basics of this person at a glance. As always, though, there are lots more to know and understand.
Wolfe is in his mid 20's. He has a girl friend but their relationship is on shaky ground when the first adventure happens and it happens because of her and that tenuous connection. He cannot commit and she wants one and she leaves to be with her father and she and Daddy get kidnapped and Wolfe feels responsible. That in a nutshell is how the series starts but it goes in unexpected and interesting directions from there quite quickly.
As far as Wolfe can remember, his father was a pretty rotten dad who abandoned him and his mother. His mother is in a vegative state in an institution and Wolfe is certain her condition is related to his father but beyond that memories are a bit fuzzy. Relationships are difficult things for Wolfe to deal with because of this upbringing.
On the plus side for Wolfe is his very high intelligence and his almost eidetic memory and his unique ability to see patterns in logic which help him considerably in his chosen field of computer security. If a system has a hole in its firewall, Wolfe could find it and either seal it or use it, depending on his needs and whims. That makes him in demand and will be of even greater use when his new life kicks in.
And it kicks in with a vengeance when his girl friend gets in trouble and Wolfe starts to learn he is a whole lot better at things than he ever thought he could be and a darn sight better than he probably should be and that has him intrigued and a tad nervous and gives the reader a lot of enjoyment.
