ABOUT THE SERIES

       Alex King is an agent with MI-6.
       And an agent with MI-5.
       When we first meet him, he is in his early-40s, a highly thought of and well seasoned operative for the Secret Intelligence Service. His specialty is taking out targets that need eliminating and he has shown over the years he was capable of doing so from a long distance or from up close. As the man in charge of Special Operations has reason to remark, King is one of his three top agents and the one who has performed "the highest percentage of successful operations". Even though he is starting to get up there in age, he remains "among the fittest" and "passes all the regular mental agility tests".
       But an action he took in northern Iraq for sound reasons has come to bite him and there are some who, for their own reasons, decide he should be made a scapegoat.
       Not to worry, though. As the series progresses, while MI-6 might say goodbye, MI-5 is more than willing to pick up a highly trained operative and while they might not have quite the need for someone with his deadly abilities quite so often, they certainly can see the use of having his expertise around when needing to stop other assassins from plying their trade against British subjects.
       Of course no good deed goes unpunished and as administrations change those in authority change and gratitude is just a word in the dictionary, not an emotion felt in the high offices so King will again find himself where he so often has been: very much needed and very little wanted. Good thing the man has thick skin.
