This story is probably the middle of a series that is in the tradition of many spy/thriller authors such as Robert Ludlum, Lee Child, and Vince Flynn. While all of those authors have their own style, John R. Maxim redefines the genre.
There is a group of intelligence operatives from many nations that have banded together in Westport, Connecticut (real town) for their own protection and an effort to lead normal lives. They are as blood thirsty a group as you are likely meet and also very personable. Their adventures can be violent and very entertaining because they are the good guys and girls. The story is replete with every degree of bad guy that you can imagine. All in all, a very entertaining story. Well done.
