Harry Wilson and girlfriend Brenda Foster find themselves needing help to unravel the mysteries that entangle them. Harry is trying to develop a one-man security consulting practice and does not claim to be a detective. After twenty-five years with the CIA, he took early retirement when budget cuts forced cold-war-horses of a certain age to find new lines of work. Consequently, many of his old friends are highly-skilled people he worked with the Agency, aka the Company. Somehow, fate keeps stepping in with greater challenges than one man can handle on his own.
