Full Name: Kent Steele
Codename: Agent Zero
Nationality: American
Organization: CIA
Occupation Agent

Creator: Jack Mars
Time Span: 2019 - 2020


       Kent Steele is an agent with the CIA.
       He has been one for quite a few years and was rated as one of their very best for most of that time, a man who has performed impossible tasks in a wide variety of spaces around the globe.
       Reid Lawson is a professor of European History at Columbia University, a widow who greatly misses his wife of many years who died some time back from a brain aneurysm. Despite the heartache, he manages to raise his two loving teenage daughters, Maya and Sara. He has been a college instructor for most of his adult life, starting shortly after he himself graduated and rising through the ranks to be the respected 38-year-old academician that he is.
       The problem is that Reid Lawson is Kent Steele. He just did not remember that he was. But, of course, he could not have been standing in front of students each day as his memories tell him he was if he was also busting in doors to take out terrorist cells. Right?
       As Lawson slowly and painfully realizes that much of his life was not real and deals with memories conflicting with other memories, bad things start to happen that he is the perfect man to handle. The trouble becomes that to deal with all of these matters is likely going to lose for him the things most precious to him.
       Lawson/Steele is an extremely dangerous man who, even though he is in his late 30's or early 40's, can still move with impressive speed and agility which is vital because as he regains those memories, he remembers and realizes there are a lot of people who would love to get their hands on the operative codenamed 'Agent Zero'. And if they cannot snatch him, shooting him or blowing him up is almost as good.
       As one adversary says to him, "Agent Zero. Many of us know you as Kent Steele, but all know of Agent Zero. Like a legend-an urban myth. A name that inspires fear in the most stalwart." A bit flowery, perhaps, but it definitely fits.

When Professor Lawson answered the knock on his home's front door, the two Arab looking men asked if he was Reid Lawson. He agreed, of course, because he was. After they quickly kidnapped him and took him away for interrogation, they kept asking him the same question but were unhappy his answer never changed. Even after taking him across the Atlantic to Paris for more questioning, they were certain he was a highly dangerous CIA spy. Lawson knew they were terribly wrong. Except for the memories of events that never happened which started to return to him.

       Agent Zero is a character who is probably way too good to be believable and I did not care in the least. He is not invincible like a couple best-selling operatives seem to be because he gets the tar pounded out of him now and then but he is a stubborn cuss and never stops fighting. I had fun with this.
       I also very much enjoyed that back home he has a life to go to - indeed, he would probably not leave it if he was not forced. And while I disliked the fact that often that home life is not perfect (we are talking teenage daughters, you know), that part is believable.
       I like the author's other series but of the two, I prefer Agent Zero and I hope he sticks around.
