ABOUT THE SERIES
Annie Walker is an agent with the CIA.
When we initially meet her in the first recorded adventure, she is a trainee in the CIA program, still learning how to become qualified to work for the Agency. She is, as are her instructors, surprised when she is pulled out of a training session and told to report for duty.
The department she is sent to is the Domestic Protection Division (DPD), a part of the larger National Clandestine Service. Her immediate supervisor at the DPD is the sometimes quite brusque but usually spot-on former field agent Joan Campbell. Two facts are soon made apparent about Campbell; she is upwardly mobile in her desires but she is also determined to make sure she does her current job as best she can.
Walker is luckily assigned as her handler Auggie Anderson. Anderson had also been an experienced operative for a few years before an accident while on assignment in Iraq with a Special Forces unit cost him his sight. The loss of his vision has put him back in the DPD as an analyst as well as handler but his experiences in the field, coupled with his friendly mannerisms, make him an excellent tutor to Walker. Anderson's keen points of wisdom not only help her manage the dangers out in the field but also aid immensely in surviving the political and bureaucratic dangers in the CIA Headquarters.
Initially Walker assumes the reasons for her abrupt promotion to active duty came because, as she was told, of her impressive skills as a linguist. Since she speaks six languages fluently, she trusts what her bosses tell her, not having learned the hard way yet that people lie or hide the truth and spies are exceptionally skilled at doing so. The truth will come out soon, though, that her brief, three-week relationship while on vacation in Sri Lanka some time back will be a key factor; there she had met and fallen for a handsome fellow American named Ben Mercer, not knowing that Mercer was a CIA operative who subsequently went rogue and was very much sought by the Agency.
The matter of Mercer will get resolved soon and Walker will, in the process, prove to her supervisors that she has the makings of an exceptional agent. During the next few years, her naivety will be swept away and her impressive survival skills and instincts will make her a very valuable operative.
