ABOUT THE SERIES

       Lee Corey is an agent for the FBI.
       He is, more specifically, an undercover agent for C-2, a highly secret department of the FBI responsible for liaison with Interpol in the tracking and recording of criminal activity on an international scale. At least that is how the division was initially scoped to function but in the many years it had existed, its mandate has grown until now its agents were responsible for much more. One of the most experienced of those agents is Corey.
       Corey has worked for the Bureau for just over 16 years as the series opens. He got his start as a normal FBI investigator, just out of law school. He was young, excited about his job, and happily married to his long-time sweetheart. Then a car bomb took the life of his lady and with it the enthusiasm for his work. It did not, however, take his drive and his determination to stop those killers who would prey on innocents just as someone preyed on his wife.
       So for most of his career he has worked in C-2 going undercover to infiltrate any number of targets from criminals who blow up banks for the money to terrorists who do it for the attention. He allowed himself to be sent to prison to create an unshakeable cover. He has worked in the deserts and the city jungles and places in between.
       And he has acquired an attitude that no one can quite grasp. To some it seems incredible cockiness. To others it is, if not a death wish, certainly a death ambivalence. Whatever the truth, Corey is hard to pin down and hard to stop.

MY COMMENTS

       The three-book series about Corey is an interesting combination of almost light reading with intense feeling. The characters, especially the bad guys, are stereotypes but they still ring real. It sounds odd but is true nevertheless.
       The books read incredibly fast as there isn't a lot extra put into them. If the action spot is the robbing of a bank, we read about the robbery, not what the robbers did the night before or planned to do afterwards. Straightforward.
       The character of Corey is instantly likeable and comfortable. You know what you will get from this man and you get it. He has an earnestness that is compelling.
