ABOUT THE SERIES

Simon Fletcher is an agent of A1Zero.

That interestingly named small organization is a group working "under the umbrella" of a private security company started by an old frenemy of Fletcher, Sean Smith. Smith had been in charge of the military force Fletcher had been with in Afghanistan handing mission with and for the CIA as well as the Pentagon. When the rapid exiting of that country by American forces took place, Fletcher had "stayed behind  to back proxy armies and assist with Afghan militia allies, opposed to Taliban rule" but he soon grew too tired of taking orders from the suits in D.C. 

Fletcher was in Thailand, getting into trouble with some powerful people for reasons Fletcher did not understand, when Smith tracked him down and offered him a position in A1Zero. As Smith puts it, "The CIA awarded my services with classified contracts, providing a list of targets and you're the man I'm choosing to do the dirty work up close and personal". Smith's reasoning for picking Fletcher was summed nicely by "You're a patriot, Fletch. God doesn't make men like you too often. He's given you a talent, and now I'm giving you a purpose". That talent, by the way, is killing bad guys and as Smith rightly puts it, "You're the absolute best the U.S. Military has ever seen".

For Fletcher's part, he is disenchanted with lots of things dealing with the government but he takes Smith up on the offer because he "had nothing to lose. No family or friends to compromise me. I was utterly alone and though I'd never admit ti to Smith, though he probably already suspected it, I also desperately missed the action". Plus there was the six-figure salary plus any spoils of war he could acquire on his own.

MY COMMENTS

You have probably noticed that the eight (as of this writing) adventures we have of Simon Fletcher are in the form of novellas. For that I am extremely grateful to the author, Jeremy Waldron. I adore that size in storytelling - long enough to give substance to the plot and the characters but not so long as to drag things out. Nothing is drug nowhere in these tales - well, maybe an occasional body but not the writing, that's for sure.

I would not say that Simon Fletcher is a man I would - or most people would - like as a friend because the chances of getting punched in the nose by people he is not friendly with, and there are a lot of them, would be quite high. But watching him from the safety of my e-book, well, that is a hoot.

I became a fan of the author through his Samantha Bell crime thriller, following her do her investigative reporting and solving crimes along with three good and very interesting friends. I was excited to see him make the move to the spy-fi realm just so I could say great things about his terrific writing.
