Every deep-cover intelligence agent has a spooker. It's his escape hatch - a hidden kit that contains false identification, keys to a hidden car or boat or plane, weapons, and money - lots of money. If you need to disappear fast, you need a spooker. And if you are the sort of person who can kill for a living, then there's no more attractive target than agents in deep cover, and their spookers. It's the perfect crime: agents die everyday, taken out by the other side. It took our people a long time to figure it out. The killers were good - invisible, quick, leaving no trace behind. But one day the murderers made a serious mistake. They targeted Gary Landis, a DEA man in deep cover. They spooked him into running, and grabbed him and killed him. And then they dumped his body down a mine shaft they'd used before. It was a bad kill - Landis didn't have much of a spooker he was a fed, not an international intelligence agent. But he did have a few good friends.
