Kiki Claymore is an agent with Task Force Ten.
When we first meet this very much alive and lively young woman, she has a part-time job for NATO as a typist, a not very exciting job that allows her to see very little and do even less but it does afford her the opportunity to live in Amsterdam and that is for her a lot better than Ottawa, Canada where she was born and raised. That life is about the change drastically.
It seems being a spy runs in her family and when her grandfather, Angus, a Scotsman who turns out was a legendary operative. Claymore did not know that but soon learned it and other things, too.
And suddenly she was part of Task Force Ten. She really did not want to be. And her fellow operatives did not want her to be. And her new bosses most certainly did not want it. And things were about to get worse.
