Item description for Queen & Country, Vol. 7: Operation Saddlebag by Greg Rucka, Mike Norton & Steve Rolston...
Still recovering from the death of her co-worker and lover, Tara Chace is granted a brief reprieve from London's rain and MI6's bureaucracy. This emotionally charged vacation takes Chace to the slopes of Switzerland for a visit with old friends and family. But being an agent for Her Majesty's Secret Intelligence Service leaves little time for rest. A junior minister with close ties to the Prime Minister appears to be selling state secrets to the Russians, and the Minders are assigned to quietly investigate. Tara is forced to walk a tight rope between the violent dangers inherent in the field of espionage and the discretion inherent in the bureaucracy of the government, all the while assuming the new position of Minder One and field-testing a new agent. Operation: Saltlick takes the Special Section from the safety and comfort of Great Britain to the St. Petersburg underworld.

Amazing! Feb 10, 2008
En la línea de las sagas anteriores, con una primera historia que enlaza los acontecimientos de la pasada recopilación y el desarrollo de la Operación Saddlebag completa.
Another Q&C success! May 15, 2005
Could this simply be the finest work in the Q&C ouevre? The drama is tight, the action is hot, you want to beat the crap out of the wanker "C", and you want to fall in love with Tara Chace (forget that she's just ink on paper). The vulnerability of the female character is exceptionally rendered visually and intellectually. The prologue should help explain some of Chace's behavior as she encounters her overbearing, sexually loose mother. It doesn't completely, and at first I found it off-putting this was included in the overall arc, but the full story overcame this small shortfall. Rucka continues to portray Chace's female character with sensitivity that most secret agents do not get as they are, usually, beyond pain, grief, and failure. Could a male character fill Chace's boots? I don't care and hope Rucka never attempts to find out.
