While appearing to be a decrepit freighter, it’s actually a high-tech advanced ship used by the Corporation, under the leadership of Juan Cabrillo. The ship is run like a business, with its crew shareholders, taking jobs for the CIA and other agencies to help stop terrorism and other crimes.
The crew is adept at disguises, combat, computer hacking and more to aid their missions. Juan speaks to Pitt on the telephone, and Austin and Zavala appear at the end. They center around Isaac Bell, a brilliant investigator for the Van Dorn Detective agency, which appears to be modeled after the real-life Pinkerton Agency. Like Pitt, Bell has an affinity for automobiles and is a crack shot. The first book does reveal Bell survives into with a wife and grown children.
