A gritty and believable modern day spy story. Tara Chace is one of three 'minders' (special agents) who are routinely sent on dangerous missions to the world's hotspots. The book also focuses on the management such people by senior officials, and their relationship to other intelligence agencies. Obviously well-researched, the book shows the less glamourous side of intelligence work: waiting around, office politics and the minders' problems with PTSD and alcohol. The characters are very job-focused and closed. It's hard to read much into them, even Tara. ( )

A graphic novel series about the British version of the CIA (operatives that only work on foreign soil). Even though the novel is very plot driven and doesn't really provide background information on the operatives (unless you count the blurbs in the beginning which I don't because really they only describe people's positions in the organization); I was still really interested in the characters, their interactions with each other and with the shrink. Too bad my library doesn't carry any of these. ( )
