Item description for Queen & Country, Vol. 5: Operation Stormfront by Greg Rucka...
When an agent dies in the field, it's their fellow spies that are always hit the hardest. When the agent that doesn't make it home is an ex-lover, "hard" doesn't begin to describe it. As Tara Chace and the rest of the department reel over the demise of one of their own, a ghost from Director Paul Crocker's past has him sending his minders into danger yet again. But will this operation free Crocker from his ghosts or merely create new ones? Queen & Country: Operation: Stormfront is the latest volume in the award-winning series of espionage and politics and sees creator Greg Rucka united with the Eisner-nominated artist Carla Speed McNeil (Finder).

Visceral action in Greg Rucka's spy-thriller classic May 21, 2007
"Operation Storm Front" is the fifth volume of Greg Rucka's "Queen And Country" series, reprinting issues #16-20 of this increasingly dense, gripping spy-thriller saga. This is the best storyline to date, a tense, grippingly violent story that revolves around a kidnapping in the former Soviet republic of Georgia. British secret agent Tara Chase is sent in to settle old scores, but finds herself (and her new partner) overwhelmed by the ruthlessness of the locals. The real action, though, is back home, behind the scenes, as we delve into the office politics of the spookhouse Chase works in... Things are really heating up for Tara's beleagured boss: will she be in for a promotion, soon? I'm sure future volumes will tell!
