The Sleeping Dogs is a group inside American Intelligence.

At least, two decades ago it was. It was seen by the top echelon in the intelligence community that terrorism was becoming a clear and present danger to the country and that since the new enemy was able to strike when and how it liked with no mercy and no conscience, it was vital for the survival of the West that it create a force just as ruthless and just as determined. The best men and women from every Special Forces group were culled and then trained even harder until they were sharper than any opponent they were likely to come up against. For a time, they did their job swiftly, violently, and silently and proved just how valuable they were.

But Administrations change. Values change. Objectives shift. And ideas on how things should be done and enemies fought change. So it was with the Sleeping Dogs. Where one leadership saw them as saviours of freedom, another saw them as vicious killers violating rights and breaking laws. So the program was scrapped. The Sleeping Dogs were put away.

Now an old enemy hidden long ago has been revealed and the Sleeping Dogs, much older and rusty, are again needed. The questions they must ask themselves, though, are: Are they able? Are they willing? And will they even have a chance to try.

These are important questions that come to mind of Brendan Whelan, the former leader of the Sleeping Dogs, and he must ask them of himself before he can bring himself to ask it of the others. And what will he do if they say no? Can the country survive without them? Can they survive if they say yes?

Well, talk about ungrateful. They are picked to do a job, hired to do it, trained to do it, do it better than could be reasonably hoped, and then some time later it is feared the truth of it will come out so, hey, let's off the people we had do it. Ungrateful.

And talk about stupid. They hired a group of people they thought could do the job, trained them to do it, and then expected these people would just let themselves be eliminated.

For action and adventure, there is definitely something to be said about this exciting series but if you are like me, you will growl more than a couple times at how unfair things can get. And then you will grin when the good guys succeed.
