He wakes up hanging off the end of a fishing boat, a young girl suffering from hypothermia clinging to his sleeve.
Newly-minted double-o candidate Will Graham has been itching for some career advancement ever since his ex-husband faked his death, and up and left him for some counterintelligence agent Will had never even heard of in his former tenure as Asset Manager for MI6.
Lo and behold, M has a sick sense of humor, and Will’s last candidacy assignment before becoming a full-fledged agent involves not only killing someone, but also a bit of creative play-acting with a supposedly-deceased familiar face.
(The moral of the story is that Will can never properly remember Bedelia Du Maurier’s name. Whether this is for spite or for real is anyone’s guess.)
Twenty years ago, the Black Kaiser killed nearly everyone Connor loved. But that wasn’t the end of the story.
On a quest to repay the man behind the Kaiser’s reputation, Connor finds Hank Anderson, middle-aged and living quietly in a small town with a new Saint Bernard pup he genuinely seems to care for.
He doesn’t seem like a monster, and Connor discovers early on that he’s questioning whether or not he can follow through with his plan to kill the Kaiser.

Husband is a dope who does not realize we haven’t had sex in 65 days.
Husband would be threatened by the fact that female assassin am currently chasing likely has a dick bigger than his.
Will buries her face in her hands, knocking her glasses askew.
Enough with the stupid scribbles in the diary, she tells herself, reading over the ridiculous lines she’s just written and crossing out the one about her female assassin’s imaginary knob.
Or: Will is extremely under-qualified to set a honeytrap against a mysterious female assassin she only knows by the letter "H". She manages to screw herself over, or at least, get screwed in the process.
