Intersect is a security corporation.
The idea of a corporation specializing in protection is by no means unique. There have been in life and in fiction many companies who provide bodyguard services to the rich and famous. The organization described in this two-book series does, however, have a specialty that gives it an entry in this compendium.
International Security Systems, Inc., or Intersect as it is commonly known, exists as a deterrent and a guard against the destructive forces of terrorism around the world. Its clients include many world governments, international corporations, and world-travelers leery of the rising specter of the fanatic killer with a cause. It has earned the hard way the intimidating reputation it has among the various organizations that might have to combat it.
Founded by Ronald Vickers, a former U.S. Ranger and member of the OSS during WWII, a man who has fought some of the worst that world had thus far seen, it has its offices in a small, one-story building on Massachusetts Avenue in Washington, D.C. from where it conducts its singular mission: the 'frustration and eradication of terrorists'. Vickers is the man who decides which of the many job offers that come in his company will take, and he is the one to pick the hefty fee to be charged. Vickers' team is effective but it isn't cheap.
To accomplish its mission, it has the services of a large group of dedicated men and women but at the core of the operations, ready for the worst assignments, in a six-man paramilitary group comprised of the elite from England, America, Germany, Israel, France, and Italy. It is this force that is used in the two adventures chronicled. The major of each book is devoted to their military operations.
