As part of the Special Section of Britain's Ministry of Intelligence, Tara Chace is one of a handful of operatives they call when they need to clean up a mess, or to make a new one. It's certainly a world of questionable morals. For instance, is it better to assassinate a general in the Russian mafia, to take his life, rather than allow him to peddle more guns and drugs in underprivileged countries? Tara's bosses seem to think so. But the Russian mafia ask their own questions--once someone has taken the life of one of their officers, can they continue to let that person live? Greg Rucka peels back the lid on the traditional espionage story to reveal the nastiness inside, and Steve Rolston brings it to life with stunning clarity. Queen & Country, Vol. 1: Operation: Broken Ground also features chapter break art by Tim Sale and a special short story illustrated by Stan Sakai.

Good stuff. Mature, fast paced storyline. I wonder why Rucka likes to make his strong women characters such heavy drinkers? Just asking.

A fantastic, and fantastically gray addition to spy fiction. Populated by dynamic, and flawed, human characters put in extraordinary situations.

Greg Rucka welcomes readers right away to the real world he has created in Queen & Country. I don't know how the English would take this book but everything I read seemed very believable to me. Every panel was so very real. The art by Steve Rolston, while not dynamic, is everything this book needs. Realism and significance. Overall, I look forward to delving into this world more often.
