ABOUT THE SERIES

Tara Wolfe is a freelance agent.

That is the best description I can come up with for what she does, at least what she is doing at the time we find a recorded adventure about her alone. We meet her first as a fascinating participant in the adventures of a part-time MI5 agent and for a time we have to wonder

just how bad of a person she is going to turn out to be because our introduction to her takes place as she dispatches a man swiftly and certainly with a sword. That sort of thing has a way of catching your attention.

But to be accurate, the person who took care of the Columbian drug kingpin was not named Wolfe at the time but Wei Mei. Mei is a Chinese woman, young, very attractive with a small slender figure, "almost boyish", but she confidently and efficiently approached the victim and ended his life without compunction or remorse and then called her boss in the triad for whom she worked to report completion of her task. Orderly, calm, efficient, deadly, those are very accurate words for Wei Mei.

It will be some time before we learn that this oriental instrument of death did not always go by the name she uses when we meet. She was born Tara Wolfe and it will be in the adventures of Gabriel Wolfe that we learn that as a tiny baby she was kidnapped from their home in Hong Kong. The British, including dad, refused to pay the ransom and the girl was never recovered. Exit tiny Tara and enter Mei.

She was raised in mainland China by 'Mummy Rita" until bandits attacked the village and she barely escaped, fleeing to the huge city of Shenzen and a life on the streets. An incident where she had to defend herself against three spoiled rich kids is witnessed by a 'recruiter' and she is whisked away by the Communist Party who saw great potential. 

It will be many years of working as an assassin for first the Communists and later a triad before she would learn that Wei Mei was originally Tara Wolfe and with the new knowledge, yet another life change.

MY COMMENTS

I really enjoyed the Gabriel Wolfe tales and especially liked the super-dangerous Wei Mei. When the author decided to 'convert' her into Tara Wolfe, I was skeptical but then decided what the heck and went with it. Good move on my part because Wei Mei is cool but Tara Wolfe, now knowing she is of two worlds, is way cool. 

I really hope the author will continue to give us Tara Wolfe adventures. I love the character and can think of lots of great ways to take her, with or without further input from her brother, Gabriel. They are fun together, I'll grant you, but she is even better on her own.
