Brice Bannon is an agent with Homeland Security.

He is also the owner of a bar along the dockside.

Most of the pertinent intelligence on this man was provided in the promotional blurb for his first adventure:

"Brice Bannon served fifteen years in the Coast Guard, most recently as captain of the Deployable Operations Group, (DOG), the Coast Guard's version of the Army's Special Forces and Navy's Seals operations. When the command was decommissioned, rather than accept re-assignment, Bannon retired from the full-time Coast Guard.

"But, Bannon didn't leave the Coast Guard behind completely. He remains in the Reserves.

"Recruited by the Secretary of Homeland Security, he leads a small, secretive team of specially-trained, highly-skilled operatives capable of responding to and investigating specific, targeted threats against the homeland. Threats that cannot be effectively handled by standard operating means. Threats that call for a unique and often secret approach outside the normal channels of either Homeland Security or the Department of Defense.

"When not risking his life for the government, Bannon runs the Keel Haul, his bar in the resort town of Hampton Beach, on the New Hampshire seacoast. There, he also operates as a small town private investigator and tends to get himself in big trouble along with the help of his two best friends and teammates; Tarakesh "Blades" Sardana and CWO Skyjack McMurphy."

So when we meet Bannon, and his two close colleagues, he is a man who wears four hats: special operative reporting directly to the head of DHS, Coast Guard Reservist, private investigator, and a bar owner. While the stories that are available to use about his activities tend do deal mostly with the first and a bit less with the second, the third and fourth do come into play. Especially when bad people do bad things to his bar. He really likes that bar.

Note: His best buddy McMurphy is a very interesting fellow and a lot of fun to have around. The real star of the show, though, is "Blades". What an amazing woman! Definitely deserving of her own adventure (or three).

I had a blast reading this series. It is fast and furious with enough dark humor between the main characters to be a hoot while never coming close to being a comedy. I really liked the character of Brice Bannon and I hope the author writes more about him. Considering the man has several other series going, though, I have to worry about his having time. And here I am at the end of the About the Series section suggesting he also write some solo adventures about "Blades". The man has to sleep sometime!

Seriously, for a fun, fun read, check out these adventures, both the books and the novellas.
