George Raven is an agent with American Intelligence.
That nebulous description of Raven's new employer is about the best I could come up with. Raven was hired by an older gentleman named Goldfarb, once with the CIA but now "officially out of the game" though not so much that he could not set up a "special task force" at the behest of the US President.
First, though, it is important to note that George Raven is a made-up identity, given to a well-seasoned CIA operative named Wayne. That is his last name. What his first name is does not seem to have been mentioned, though we learn that he was codenamed 'Cowboy' and that was often used in its place.
At the beginning of the first recorded adventure of Raven/Wayne, we follow a very unpleasant dressing-down of Wayne for supposedly torturing an Iranian who was, according to Wayne, deeply involved in that nation's nuclear weapon program. Since the incident had become somewhat public and even a congressional hearing was suggested, a fall guy was needed to clear the Agency and Wayne's career would be brought to a very abrupt end with a permanent firing, as in good-bye and don't come back.
Officially, though, we learn that "Cowboy Wayne didn't make it. He had a tragic heart attack after being dismissed by the CIA. Another sad case of a burned out agent who couldn't make it back to the civilian world. There will be a small funeral service with a closed casket. Wayne will be deemed to have died honorably on active duty. His accrued Agency benefits will be put into a fund for [his] two children. They can use it for college and will have full access to the money when they reach twenty one."
Thus was the demise of Wayne and the birth of George Raven, now offered that position with the President's task force.
Joining him will be several key people including John Black, an engineer and skilled pilot and pseudo-operative himself (see his own series page), Rudy Rogers, Terry Coston, Pat Barry, and Vinnie Russelle, all good people to have Raven's back. He will also have the use of impressive technology coming out of Cybertech, about which there are a couple of solo adventures written.
And then there is Josie Lynch, about whom several adventures could and should be told all by herself. Lynch is a paranormal, a person with extraordinary skills. In her case it is remote viewing which gives her limited ability to see "future events from a great distance".
Josie Lynch is described, when we first meet her, as "five foot two and perhaps a hundred and ten pounds soaking wet, which was how she had been last night in the moonlight climbing out of the fountain at the conference center, stoned silly. She was a challenge at times. Lately, too many times." Another more colorful description of her is "ninety pounds of girl, mostly tits". Not particularly PC but certainly evocative.
Readers will quickly learn that there is a whole lot more to this woman than her chest. Though Lynch "abhors violence and is even physically and psychically sickened by it", she will become a partner with Raven in his adventures, as well as some intimately closer.
