Manny DeWitt is a lawyer.
That notwithstanding, he seems to be a good guy. He is extremely resourceful, quite smart, energetic, and at times playful. He is the go-to guy for a very wealthy Dutchman named Hans Lobbe who mixes languages with ease, though perhaps not so easy to understand. If there is a negotiation, DeWitt is sent. If there is an investigation, DeWitt is the guy. If there is a chance of getting killed so Lobbe can make a few more millions, DeWitt answers the call.
DeWitt does not, however, consider himself important. He claims that just as Lobbe has a typist pool from which to draw, he has a lawyer pool. Manny considers himself just one of many. He isn't, as Lobbe routinely picks him. Except when he is fired, which apparently happens on a regular basis. Or he quits, which is also not rare.
This series belongs here because the business affairs of Lobbe very often fly in conflict with the desires of other nations and that usually causes guns to fire, bombs to explode, knives to be tossed, and beautiful women to appear out of nowhere. Lobbe makes the money and DeWitt takes the risks. Of course, DeWitt is quite nicely compensated, when he forces the issue, but nothing can adequately pay for the dangers that DeWitt faces because of his boss, or the aggravation caused by his boss.
DeWitt does not like violence. He has little use for guns or knives or those people who routinely use them. Unfortunately for him, his boss's strange assignments keep pushing into conflict with those people. Luckily, DeWitt knows a good lawyer.
