Jeremy Waller is an agent with the FBI.
Though he has been an agent for many years, earning a solid reputation as a very dependable man to have on a team, he has, at the start of this two-book series, just become a member of the highly prestigious Hostage Rescue Team. As such, he is now tasked with heading to far-off places to take on dangers to civilians from a virtually unlimited number of dangers. Whether it is terrorists or organized crime or an unhinged man with a grudge, it is Waller and his fellow agents who must shut down the trouble with a minimum of bloodshed and innocent casualties. Within this division, Waller's personal assignment is that of sniper.
Standing 6'4" and weighing only 185 lbs, Waller is a very fit and sinewy man who enjoys going the extra mile to make sure he stays in shape. This is not easy to do considering that in addition to missions that take him around the world in a work environment not condusive to a regimen. Add to that the fact that Waller is a married man with three young children. Luckily for Waller, his wife, Caroline, has a handle on things albeit with less than great enthusiasm for the dangerous profession her husband has chosen.
Waller is known to his superiors and peers for more than his intelligence, which is high, and his physical ability, which is also commendable. He is known for his exceptional ability to think through a problem, seeing beyond what most do and coming up with a plan that gets the job done. He is seldom the fastest at something or the strongest at something but he is usually the first at getting it done, and done right.
While most series about FBI agents do not qualify for membership in this collection, Waller is a welcomed member because his recorded assignments are both of international scope and both have national security implications. And while he works as a member of team, his individualness makes him stand out.
