This compilation novel is comprised of three novellas: Assignment Zero, Agent Prerogative, and The Final Chapter, making this the complete Alexis Parker prequel series. Assignment Zero: You may know Alexis Parker as a top-notch investigator and security consultant, but before joining the private sector, she was a federal agent. At approximately 90 pages, this novella chronicles Agent Parker's beginning from her last few days at Quantico through her very first mission as an underling to S.S.A. Mark Jablonsky. As a probationary agent, Alexis Parker is learning the ins and outs of conducting a proper investigation, but all bets are off when she ends up undercover with her academy rival, Michael Carver. Suspicious shipments keep surfacing, and the Los Angeles FBI field office is forced to partner with the Office of International Operations to conduct their investigation. A restaurant employee, a wine collector, and the Russian mafia are all pieces of this daunting puzzle. Weapons are being smuggled into the country, and it's up to Alex and Michael to determine the source. Things continue to become more complicated until they reach an unsettling end. Agent Prerogative: Alexis Parker is close to finishing her two years of training at the Office of International Operations. Having gone undercover to thwart arms dealers, working with Interpol to bring down a group of forgers, and dealing with more paperwork than anyone could ever imagine, she's ready to become a full-fledged federal agent. Returning from an extended overseas mission, she discovers her rival, Michael Carver, has permanently transferred to the OIO. Her unsteady partnership with her Quantico competitor must fall to the wayside as Alex and Michael are forced to work side by side. This time the FBI is trying to identify and track a group of ATM bandits. The only lead in the case is from an anonymous tip which no one believed to be legitimate until another ATM machine is hijacked. The OIO team is spread thin as they attempt to keep watch on all the possible targets while searching for the identities of the mysterious tipster and the group responsible for the thefts. The Final Chapter: In the explosive conclusion to the Alexis Parker prequel series, the OIO is hot on the trail of a bomber. So far, there has only been a single detonation at an impound lot, but with a threatening phone call promising more fireworks, it is a race against time to identify the bomber and stop him before there can be more destruction. Agent Parker has been on the job for over four years, chasing suspects, identifying leads, and becoming close with her federal agent brethren, but a single moment can alter the outcome of one's fate. The stakes are higher than they've ever been, and Parker is running on fumes. Find out what served as the impetus for all the major changes in her life and what leads her to becoming James Martin's personal bodyguard in this compelling final installment. This book contains a bonus excerpt from the first full-length novel in the Alexis Parker series, Likely Suspects.
