FOR ROOKIES, SPYING IS A DANGEROUS GAME
The Board for Industrial Research and Development has been shaping major political decisions since 1929. You haven’t heard of them because no-one has. They’re efficient, discreet and ultra-professional. Working under the guise of a multi-faceted consultancy firm. But a new threat to their customers means all that could be about to change. After much deliberation, a decision has been made.
A new technology is to be tested in an extensive field trial, and the electric car expedition WAVE offers the perfect cover. Naturally, BIRD has no desire to see it succeed. The usual countermeasures are taken and a team is dispatched. The mission is to be low-key, no more than a routine training exercise: an opportunity for BIRD to blood the next generation of field operatives. There is, it seems, little that can go wrong.
But the new recruits are young and impulsive; quick to act when caution should be the name of the game. One bad decision leads to another, and soon the mission is spiraling out of control. What BIRD doesn’t know is that there is another elite force on the scene, a crack unit sent by security agency DISECUPRO to protect the technology and its engineer.
Suddenly, all eyes are on WAVE.
