Professionals 2000: Gambit

by Jane

Review by: April

Jane took the concept of the Professionals and dropped them into the 21 century, including cell phones, high end electronics, both good and bad, and all the social problems plaguing the world now. The boys are established lovers, with Cowley's knowledge. Throw in an arch-villian to challenge Cowley and his CI 5 and you have an engaging story. It bogs down from time to time when Jane give voice to certain social issues, but picks back up as the story's plot plunges from one dangerous encounter to another. It ends with the thought of other stories to follow in this world, though it's not an extreme cliffhanger.
