Katya Peter is an exotic dancer.
Or if you prefer something a little less polite, she is a stripper. She is working in a strip club in San Francisco run by the Romanian Mob and managed by a particularly onerous individual when we first meet her. She is not thrilled with her line of work and she really is not happy with her boss, especially since he has been bleeding her financially, but as she will point out, life is seldom what we want.
She is definitely not a spy, at least not in that initial meeting. Spies usually work in the shadows out of prying eyes and considering she is "strutting on a stage", "naked except for my four-inch black heels", being a spy is out of the question. Unless she was undercover, of course. Which sort of is the situation with Jacob Wolfe, the NIA agent she will meet immediately and get to know better by way of a lap dance.
Since it is Wolfe who is the operative with the National Intelligence Agency, it might have been more accurate to have this page devoted to him. This is especially true since the first adventure has much of the events told from his viewpoint. Life will prove decisive in this matter and it will be Katya who remains the focal point of this series.
Katya is a beautiful woman in her mid-20s who came to the States as a refugee with her father, Albert Petrov, from Romanians after a horrific confrontation with government authorities there which left her mother and her sister dead on a warehouse floor and Katya and her father on the run. Things do not go much better as life continues, leading to Katya being up on that runway showing her assets to one and all. They do take a turn, though, when she meets Wolfe and gets involved in his line of work.
