Creator: Dave Edlund
Time Span: 2014 - 2021


Peter Savage is a CEO of an engineering company.

Actually, EJ Enterprises, the name of the company using his two grown children's, Ethan and Joanna, first initials is "a combination of engineering, physics, and small arms". The item he shows off to a visiting friend is a "magnetic impulse gun", the technology of which is far beyond me but sounds very impressive.

Savage is nearing retirement age but has little thought of settling down. He might have once but when his wife of many years, Maggie, passed away, work provided a great distraction and he has made it pay off quite well. His two grown children are a son in college and a daughter got her degree and is now in the work force. He remains on great terms with both but they have their lives now and he has his. He also has a father who is still quite active, a semi-retired research professor at a university in the state. The state is Oregon and the small city Savage makes his home and the location for his business is Bend.

Peter is quick to smile and laughter comes easily, but there is always a twinge of sorrow with his still missing his wife. He is of medium build and sports brown hair in a conservative cut. His most distinguishing feature are his eyes-steel gray and his determined expression when he concentrates. What cannot be seen about his is his high intelligence and his willingness to act on his hunches, a trait that saves his life a time or two.

For a man who many might think beyond the age to get into the kind of scrapes Savage will find for himself, Savage does land into a good deal of trouble here and there but his intelligence and his experience and his tenacity help him come out on top.

The older I get, the more I enjoy reading about older men and women still being able to kick butt (albeit maybe not as high up) and take names (in my case, remembering them would be questionable). I could never do any of the things that Peter Savage does even when I was his much younger than I age but I can pretend.

The writing on this series is darn good. The stories move quickly and smoothly and the characters are a lot of fun to follow. I recommend this series for any fan of spy action adventures.
