Full Name: Nathan Frost
Nationality: American
Organization: CIA
Occupation Agent

Creator: Joe Williams
Time Span: 2021 - 2021


Nathan Frost is an agent with the CIA.

More specifically he is attached to the Special Activities Division. Occasionally he is part of the Political Action Group which "specializes in thigs like psychological, economic, and cyber warfare". At other times he works as part of the Special Operations Group. In the later we are told, he is one of the "leave-your-dog-tags-at-home guys". While the powers-that-be liked the work he did with PAG, they also "didn't want everything [he] learned during sixty-one days of hell at Fort Benning's Ranger School to go for naught".

When we meet him initially, he has the rather odd and to him quite dull work of playing a philanthropic benefactor providing post-graduate scholarships to foreign students coming to America. The purpose behind that was to monitor these young people for either those who would want to do harm to the U.S. or who might prove useful as an asset.

The monies used for these grants is, we are told, at no cost to the average taxpayers as he and his associate had come up with an rather unique and considerably gruesome way of funding it. More on that can be learned by reading the books yourself (no spoilers).

That associate mentioned is fellow PAG operative Diana Calabrese. She is a more-than-capable operative all on her own, certainly not one that a person should want on their bad side. From her description, she is a very good looking woman who, when seen with Frost, invariably makes people wonder that she was doing with him, or how did he get so lucky.

The relationship between Calabrese and Frost is interesting and one that I am not sure if Frost has quite figured out.

Good Line:
- When Calabrese tells Frost she is heading out for a mission that is likely to be humdrum, he asks "You're hoping to get shot at?" to which she replies, "Well, maybe not at close range, but ..."

Written by Joe Williams

Nathan Frost is in charge of a college scholarship program to monitor foreign exchange students to see if they were either a potential threat to America or a possible asset to be recruited. He was beginning to wonder if the CIA funded project would ever find anyone actually doing something wrong. And then he did.

2 The Boomslang Beauty The Boomslang Beauty
Written by Joe Williams
Copyright: 2021

While on vacation at a resort in the Florida Keys, Nathan Frost steps out into the hallway of his hotel to investigate a disturbance. He finds a young call girl and an angry customer having issues but it was not the type that Frost was expecting. Both were displaying early signs of trouble from a sudden disease. Afflicted with a virus called the Boomslang, they were the first victims but as Frost would find when he starts to track things, nowhere near the last.

I pondered for a bit why I liked this series as much as I do, which is a good deal. The writing is very well done and the plotting is darned fine. But it is the characters, especially the main two, that make the stories so good.

I really liked the dickens out of both Frost and Calabrese and I love it when the two of them are together. Their friendly banter is such a pleasure to follow.

A lot of series, especially on television, have a "will they or won't they" subplot going. This one did - and then didn't - and then did. For me the fun was watching them try to decide. All while not getting themselves killed on whatever mission they might be on.

I certainly hope there will be more books in this series.
