ABOUT THE SERIES

Nathan Grant is an agent with the CIA.

As we meet him in one of the first recorded adventure of his, he is nearing the time to say goodbye to the Agency, both in years and in often frustration. That adventure starts with his meeting a contact in a former infamous Soviet prison in Estonia and he is a tad unhappy about going the meeting and the locale without a weapon but he was told not to because the CIA "didn't want him shooting up the place". From the thoughts of Grant at the time, he would likely not have done such a thing but having the option would have been preferred.

And if gunplay had come into the matter, he would have been able to hold his own quite nicely as his old Army Ranger skills would certainly have come into play. Unfortunately for Grant, in that encounter, shots are fired and Grant has to rely on other abilities to stay alive.

Moving forward, Grant will decide that his time with the CIA had come to a logical end and he was ready to settle down. When that does not work out as he expected, he will be approached by the Agency to again work for them, this time on a contract basis which meant that while he would be largely on his own and would be disavowed if caught, he at least was free to carry his form of protection and that would make him feel a whole lot safer.

Grant is likely in his late 30s based on several tours of duty in the Middle East as a Ranger before joining the Agency and then just over a decade working for Langley. He is described as "tall and sturdy, with a chiseled jaw, the perfect nose and short, dark hair" and as having "chiseled abs". He is confident in himself and therefore quite at ease with the opposite sex, possibly do to his having a "buoyant, optimistic personality" in which he "couldn't help but smile and focus squarely on the brighter side of life". At least so thought very beautiful and quite capable Natalia Nicolaeva with whom he has an exciting adventure.

Good Lines:
- In a blurb for an adventure, "Why is it that when Nathan Grant is involved, everything always seems to go south?"

MY COMMENTS

Okay I am admitting that I liked the Nathan Grant series for two reasons.

The first is that Grant is a pretty interesting fellow who has to at times put up with idiots but at no time does he have to like it. Watching him handle things his own way is a lot of fun especially knowing how pale that would make his bosses back in Langley if they ever learned.

The other is the pretty amazing Natalia Nicolaeva who was actually around before Grant (in publishing history terms) with her own well deserved series. It is in one of her terrific adventures that we first meet Grant. So is she playing in his sandbox or he in hers?

Either way, the author, Kenneth Rosenberg, tells really good stories.
