Occupation Agent

Time Span: 2016 - 2018


Peter Blake is an agent with MI6.

Blake came to the department after putting in several years in the British SAS, reaching the rank of sergeant indicating he was there for likely more than one tour of duty. While we do not know exactly how long he has been an agent, it is certainly long enough to have acquired a reputation for getting the job done such that he has for the past four years been assigned to work directly under the control of the Director of Operations and not through the normal bureaucratic structure at Vauxhall Cross. In fact, that Director has taken to setting up his own operations in a "clandestine office above a small antique shop" and not at the Legoland headquarters. This move was done to protect 'C', the head of MI6. "In these days of transparency and accountability, the Director rightly felt that the less [ C ] knew of the illegal elements the better."

Blake is described as 43 years old, still quite fit, standing 6'2". He has "short dark hair, steely grey-blue eyes, and a square, determined jaw". Elsewhere it mentions that he has a chiseled face. He commonly sports dark attire such as a black bomber jacket, t-shirt, and jeans. In his off time, he enjoys sipping on Jack Daniels on the rocks and spending time with Theresa, a mid-30's woman who has gone back to college to major in journalism.

On the job, Blake routinely partners with CIA operative Brad Samson. Again it is not known how long their association has been going on but it is long enough that they have established a well-defined connection and can anticipate each other's actions and trust that they each have the other's back covered.

Off the job, Blake partners, and then marries, a waitress named Theresa who is studying to become a journalist. She will over time achieve that profession and go on to make a name for herself especially when her interested areas begin to overlap his.

Blake loves the profession he is in. "Life is nothing without adventure", Blake once commented to his boss upon being told there was a new assignment for him.


Number of Books:4
First Appearance:2016
Last Appearance:2018

       The first three books in this series are denoted as being "a trilogy of contemporary thrillers that span a three-year period in Blake‚Äôs eventful life, each a story in its own right, though inextricably linked by events which have a telling effect on the outcome." The fourth is a follow-on.


The first three books constituted a trilogy, according to the publisher. Apparently after that was concluded, the author decided yet another adventure of Peter Blake, along with his CIA pal and his wife, decided another was called for, a thought with which I concurred. 

Unfortunately, from the little I can discover, there were no more in this series.

This is a shame because I took to Blake right off and I really appreciate a storyline where the characters evolve a bit each adventure. Enough to wonder what happens next.
