This is a different kind of spy story about men and women who seek to understand what makes the varied assortment of world leaders and other world notables, both good and evil, tick. They gather and assess information gleaned from endless hours of research and file gathering, to put together a profile that will provide our government the tools needed to deal with these people and their governments.
Buried in the bowels of one of the several intelligence agencies in the US government is an office of clandestine medical personnel. Their mission is to analyze the health and mental state of international persons of interest and report their findings to America’s policymakers. The team is on call 24/7 to comment on and analyze any written observations, pictures or videos of such persons of interest that may come into the hands of the U.S. government. The goal is to provide timely information to policymakers and negotiators so that the United States of America may achieve maximum success in dealing with the people concerned. Usually this is done in the safe confines of the Agency walls, but sometimes the analysts are forced to place themselves in harms way. Through it all and despite the circumstances, their Code of Honor is to Do No Harm.
