ABOUT THE SERIES

       Jack Russell is an agent with American Intelligence.
       Naturally there is no specific agency with that name and refers to the intelligence community as a whole but that is, at this time, the most I can give because almost nothing else is given us. We know by several inferences that he is American and we can surmise by his actions that he is in the clandestine business but beyond that, nothing.
       Russell is described as looking "like one of the new breed of CEOs - he wore a white shirt and khaki trousers, with no tie and no jacket". He has muscular arms and bronzed skin, so bronzed it looks almost burnt. "His eyes sparkled like diamonds as they caught the light" but they can also be "cold as steel".
       While we do not know how old Russell is, but his reaction to things around him we must conclude he has been in the cloak and dagger business for at least a decade. He is too calm and determined to be less experienced - he is not blase about the situations he finds himself in but neither is he surprised or anxious. By the same token, he is not likely to be much older than say mid-30's because of the athleticism he must produce to handle a couple of particularly strenuous events.
       Strong and dependable is how Russell comes across. In a couple of the problems he gets thrown (literally more than once) he shows a doggedness that is admirable. His body is screaming at him to lay down and die but his mind refuses to do so because, well, it isn't in his nature to just give up. And in one case, he is standing in the open with death racing at him and little chance of survival and he doesn't panic or quit even though there is virtually no chance of making it out but still, virtually doesn't mean actually.

MY COMMENTS

       This is what I left in an Amazon review.

       "I write about spy series for my blog so when I saw this collection of stories, I got it just because that is what I do. I am so glad that I did because I was hooked immediately. The novelette that starts things off is filled to the brim with action and excitement and would make a terrific scene in any action movie. The three other short stories that follow each tell a completely different kind of adventure but are all three darned interesting.

       "The writing is terrific. Few wasted words but no doubt as to what is going on (well, except for the hero, Jack Russell, who is a tad befuddled at times but he's been shot and a little blown up so he is excused). I sincerely hope the author decides to give us more stories about Russell and I really hope he keeps them in the short story format because he has that nailed."
