ABOUT THE SERIES

       Leona Foxx is a minister.
       She is the pastor for a Chicago inner city congregation named Trinity Lutheran College. The area in which the parish resides is undergoing fairly rapid change as white families are moving to the suburbs and gang activity is gaining a presence. She has been the spiritual leader of this group for just over a year as we first meet him.
       Fox is a 35-year-old die-hard Cubs fan described as having "flowing auburn hair draped around a slender unblemished face, partially covering one of her electric blue-green eyes". She is said to have a very athletic and appealing body to do with her quite attractive looks.
       What makes Foxx interesting to fans of spy fiction is the fact that prior to taking up the cloth, she had been a very experienced and successful operative for the CIA. And much to her annoyance, they would like her back. If they cannot have her full time, occasional missions would be acceptable.
       This is not something Foxx is all too happy about persuing. As she explains to Graham Washington, the man from the Agency who comes to entice her back, "When I left the agency, I turned in everything and made a clean break. I have no relation whatsoever to the CIA or its mission. I went to seminary in Berkeley. Got a divinity education. And now I'm serving as pastor here in Chicago. I am doing everything in my power to forget or, if I have to, deny what happened when I was serving the insatiable lusts of the Whore of Babylon."
     Her wishes to be finally free of her former work will not be fulfilled. Old enemies of both the Agency in general and her in particular will return to make their displeasure known and that will require her to retreat, temporarily, into her old life. Plus there is a very special someone who will show back up again from her past to really complicate things. 
     Foxx will be shown again, as if she didn't already know too well, that once that door to the past is opened again, it is really hard to get it to close solidly again.


Good line:
When asked how it felt to take a life, Foxx responds, "It's dreadful. It's never good. But sometimes good is not an option."

MY COMMENTS

     I have some interestingly mixed feelings about this series. I would have easily given it a B+ grade if only the characters did not talk so much for so long. That, I will admit, is a pot-calling-the-kettle-black coming from long-winded me.
     Still, when the sometimes bloviating people stop their blathering, this series has some very enjoyable twists and turns to it that I really enjoyed.
     Foxx is a fascinating minister, one who has no desire to ever have to use a gun again but who will not hesitate much when it comes time to actually pull the trigger. And key point to make is that she, to quote a famous credit card line, never leaves home without it.
