ABOUT THE SERIES

Morgan Fox is a salvage expert.

He is no spy, doesn't want to be a spy, would much rather not have happen to him the sorts of things that happen to spies. Too bad he does not get to make those decisions.

When we meet him in the first recorded adventure, he is on the phone with his wife trying to explain that the job he was on in the Yukon was "safe". The way he was doing the explaining, it definitely sounded like he was having to the sell-job because his previous jobs of the type he was currently on had not been so "safe". The way she hung up on him spoke to how well she believed him.

Fox was doing the job because "he needed to do something to pay the bills - his heavy lift construction company just didn't have enough contracts at the moment to make ends meet. He was filled with frustration and disappointment at his inability to provide for his wife, to provide for their life." That desire to earn a decent life for the two of them will provide the incentive for him to get involved in several things that are most definitely not "safe".

Financial necessity is going to push Fox into working on one simple little job for the CIA. Of course it is never a simple anything with the Agency and once a fellow has done his good deed for them and pulled off a miracle, it is quite impossible to keep them from thinking of the guy the next time anything remotely like what he had done. Making it even harder is the fact that the money they offer is so darn attractive, it is next to impossible to say no.

Fox is described as a man in darn good shape, likely in his late 30s. He may be a civilian when we first run into him but we learn that Fox had served in Iraqi Freedom and had done more than one tour in Afghanistan so he certainly had experience with danger and with combat. This is a very good thing considering he will need all the experience, and luck, he can muster.

Good Line:
- "The death of the cold war has really put a damper on the spy business."

A prequel to the full-length adventures.
Lieutenant Morgan Fox was just another UH 60 Black Hawk helicopter pilot based out of Bagram Airbase. Until he was shot down.
The only way back into the air was to help search for a missing helicopter, past due.
Another 'Hawk pilot was missing along with a black operations team. Time was critical. Every day the team was gone meant their chance of survival would drop dramatically. Forced into a search grid he didn't think was correct, he worked with Captain Tony Fisher to find a way to also look in another target area.
Using his uncanny intuition and 6th sense, he worked out the possible flight path of the missing helicopter. Trying to find that missing helicopter was just the start of his problems when a rogue Major threatened to send him home in a box."

MY COMMENTS

To say that Morgan Fox was a tad ticked off with the Agency at the beginning of the first non-prequel adventure is saying a lot. That is a terrible way to resume a relationship that will keep the reader entertained for quite a few good reading hours. I don't think you could say he and the CIA ever really make up. But then again, where would be the fun in that?

I enjoy reading about people in different walks of life getting involved with spy stuff which is what we have here because Fox has expertise folks at Langley need. He, on the other hand, is less than thrilled.
