Bill is weary. His independently-wealthy wife Keiko and their newborn have run him into the ground. He never sleeps and he sees work as a haven from home. He doesn’t want trouble or excitement or controversy at work – he just wants life to be quiet. He ducked out of being the maverick field agent years ago. But it flickers… He and Eve have worked together for over ten years – they have a great relationship. Bill humors Eve’s conspiracies, teases her and also dismisses them. She has been right once or twice, but when she is, there is normally a whole load of bureaucratic red tape bullshit to have to sort through that, these days, he’d rather not have to deal with. He is solid, but tired. When Eve proposes he join her in a secret assassin tracking unit with MI6, he discovers he may have some life left in him yet.
