Who is Chris Cable? — straight, tough, a little stupid, loves women, fights with men to retain his self respect and win as often as possible. That's why he carries a gun, a particularly nice gun, a SIG-Sauer 1911. When it's shot out of his hand, a crippling injury, Chris has to get by with a little PPK. Later in life, he'll be given a SIG P320, government standard issue, a rugged 9mm with no mechanical safety, just draw and shoot. He's military, on first name basis with national security people and LAPD. He earned battlefield promotion as a Marine Corps captain, saw relentless death and dismemberment, work that fighting men do. Half of his platoon were KIA, the other half scarred and crippled, including Chris, decorated twice for bravery. When a close comrade was severely wounded, an officer he liked and respected, Chris resigned his commission, spent a year at his friend's bedside, helped him through rehab. They were both finished with killing. Nightmare memories were bad enough.
What do ex-military people do? Law enforcement. Except that Chris had a hard time taking orders, following rules. After a couple years of getting yelled at and told to do nothing, Chris decides he'd rather be a private investigator, have gun will shoot. That succeeds for a while, but no one wants to hire him twice. He's dangerous, hard, emotionally absent. Girls shun him when he smiles. They know who he is, a lone wolf, doesn't take any shit. Of course there's a perfect female for Chris — a modern Nick and Nora Charles — except that Chris is armed and dangerous and well-connected, has friends and family in secret government service, career O.G.A. who don't tell Congress what they're doing, routinely misdirect Presidents and cabinet secretaries, collaborate with DIA, DHS and NSA, but never FBI. There's an open job offer in Langley, if he wants it, as a ruthless covert operator — urbane, sexy, Ivy League confident, unpredictable. Station chiefs complain that Cable did it again, went dark and failed to report as ordered, impossible to supervise.
Murder. Prison. Black Ops. And one of the greatest love stories ever told.
