Queen & Country Declassified Vol. 2

Written by Greg Rucka

This book fills in Tom Wallace's backstory, detailing one of his earliest missions with the Special Section, on the eve of Hong Kong's handover to China.

The story follows the usual Queen and Country set-up, involving some tension among the bosses, and Minders having difficulty working with Embassy staff on the ground. Wallace is portrayed as highly capable and observant, setting his character up for his later role in the book.

This book feels a little rushed; I think an extra chapter would have helped flesh things out a little better, especially the character of Mei, the Hong Kong police.
