The glitter of the jet-set. High-speed car, helicopter, and rickshaw chases. Explosions, dirty secrets, and high-stakes casino games. Lone wolves like James Bond and Jason Bourne save the world from international conspiracies and dastardly villains. And let’s not forget the ladies, like Mallory Kane or Evelyn Salt, framed and fighting back. Show us the ultra-competent operative, spy, soldier, hacker, or double-agent fighting against huge odds for the greater good, for a paycheck—or to clear their names. Show us tough men or women who know their poker, guns, high-performance cars—and are as adept at love as they are at killing. Whether they're seducing an enemy operative or faced with an intriguing outsider who may be clueless about their true nature, allow your agent to fall in lust, or even love—which is the game with the highest stakes of all.
