CIA director Thomas Stansfield is dead - a fact many individuals in and around the nation's capital are pleased to hear. But their happiness proves to be.
That was his ticket out: a full ride to Arizona State University. After school Clark had gone into commercial real estate and development in a fledgling suburb of Phoenix called Scottsdale. Clark's life from that point forward had been one success after another. By thirty he had made his first million. By thirty-five he was set for life and decided to go into politics. He served one term in the U. House of Representatives and then it was on to the Senate, where he was now in the middle of his fourth term.
One would think that this would be enough for most people, but not Hank Clark.

He wasn't done achieving yet. There was one more job he wanted. Unfortunately, several people in Washington weren't cooperating at the moment. That, Clark knew, was why Mark Ellis had decided to make his unscheduled trip to the tiny island. Clark was a wealthy man, but he had no intention of throwing away all of that hard-won money.
That was why he needed Ellis and his friends. They had serious money, they weren't simple millionaires, they were billionaires, and they weren't shy about doling some of their billions out for access and information. Clark sighed and shook his head at the tedious road ahead. Information, that's what this whole mess was about. Knowledge truly was power, and men like Ellis understood that Clark could help give them the knowledge they needed to grow their billions and protect their kingdoms.
Even over the roar of the surf Clark heard Ellis enter the house. Clark and Ellis shared a thirst for power and that was about it. Where Clark was calm and discerning, Ellis was volatile and brash.
The man had a way of wearing people out through frontal assault after frontal assault. Nothing tricky, no feints, he just hammered you into submission.
Clark found it all very interesting. He was a true tactician, and often relished outmaneuvering people like Ellis, but tonight, in the warm Caribbean air he would prefer drinks, some light fare and the smooth skin of a young woman flown in from Miami. Ellis strode out onto the terrace at full speed like an impetuous prince delivering bad news from some far-off front.
His demeanor was very out of place in the laid back atmosphere of Clark's private retreat, and the senator made an effort not to let his irritation show. There was no hello, no comment on the weather or the beauty of the setting sun. Ellis forcefully slapped down a copy of the San Francisco Chronicle on the small wrought iron table near Clark and kept his eyes focused on the man. How was your flight? Clark glanced down at the paper and said, "Mark, you'll have to read it to me.
I don't have my glasses with me. This might be enjoyable after all: the bull and the matador. Sources close to the president say that next week he will nominate Dr. Irene Kennedy to become the next director of the CIA. If Kennedy is confirmed she will become the first woman to head the spy agency. You are not my only source in Washington," spat Ellis. I'm hearing if she finds out about our little arrangement she will blow us out of the water.
I don't know who your other sources are, but I will guarantee you they don't know Dr. Kennedy as well as I do. She was taught by the best. That agency has never seen anyone as competent, efficient and lethal as Thomas Stansfield, and I doubt they ever will I have no doubt that Stansfield has left her with his files.
I know some very powerful men in Washington who are very nervous about her nomination. These men are afraid of her. They are afraid of what she knows, and they would prefer not to draw any attention to themselves. I don't care how many of them are afraid of her. I don't care how many of them lose their jobs or their wives or whatever it is they are afraid of losing -- " "How about their freedom? Would you like one? You're trying to scare me into backing down.
And I'm telling you right now I'm not going to. The bottles were kept on a speed rail beneath the bar. Reaching for the Scotch, he said, "Your little investigative firm that you use in Washington" -- Clark allowed himself a slight chuckle -- "I suppose they're fine if you're looking for a little dirty laundry on one of my colleagues or a reporter you don't like Ellis muttered several swear words under his breath and took a drink.
The situation the senator was referring to was a disaster for the billionaire. He had hired a private investigative firm in Washington to spy on the lobbying office of one of his chief competitors. The sleuths attempted to bribe the night cleaning crew by giving them cash for garbage.
The cleaning crew reported this to their employer and the cops stepped in and busted the employees of Leiser Security. It was later learned that Ellis had hired the firm. Ellis hid behind a shield of lawyers and no charges were ever filed, but on a personal level the incident was the talk of Silicon Valley.
Ellis avoided the social scene for months and was on the wrong end of some very scathing jokes. Knowing no other style, Ellis refused to be deterred by the senator's embarrassing reference.
I don't download this crap that a bunch of senators are scared of Kennedy, and if they are, that's all the more reason to block her. You're not making any sense. Most of them think that Kennedy will do just fine, in fact probably better than anyone else we could find. To them there is no reward in blocking her nomination. I'll fill their reelection coffers with cash. The only way to stop her nomination at this point is to find something damaging in her past.
The senators on my committee will not vote against her over differences of opinion. She has too good of a reputation for the work she's done as the head of Counterterrorism. You don't get to where she is without breaking some of your stupid oversight rules.
The result was the formation of the Orion Team. An organization supported by the Agency but outside the Agency. Their job in a nutshell was to take the war to the terrorists. The hunters became the hunted. To use the Orion Team against Kennedy would be a very risky proposition. If she decided to take others down with her, it could get very ugly indeed.
That particular information was far too valuable to trust Ellis with, though, so Clark just shook his head and said, "There is nothing. Believe me, I've looked. Unflappable as ever, Clark flashed a big grin and said, "I am my own source. What in the hell do I have to fear from her? Do you know anything about this woman's mentor?
Thomas Stansfield was not a ruthless man. He was very calculating. If you tried to do this country harm, or his agency, or him personally," Clark shook his head, "you were apt to end up dead. My portfolio is down forty percent! My investors are down over fifty percent! It's bad enough that the market is in the tank, but it's unacceptable that I'm flying blind!
I spent way too much fucking money on Echelon! The man was beyond recovery at the moment. His thoughts turned to Echelon, the supersecret program started by the National Security Agency back in the seventies. Through a series of ground stations located around the globe and satellites in space the agency began intercepting telexes, faxes and phone calls. Using supercomputers and highly advanced voice recognition software the NSA was able to sift through millions of calls daily, and sort out the ones that were interesting.
Somewhere along the way some people got the bright idea of targeting certain foreign companies that were direct competitors of U. The information was then passed along to, for example, a certain U. Echelon continued to morph into the nineties. Worried about the spread of U. Senator Clark, as Chairman of the Senate Select Committee on Intelligence, got to see what was being discovered firsthand.
The information he got was valuable to men like Mark Ellis. Who was working on what? How close were they to bringing their product to market?
Who wanted to download whom? Ellis had made a killing on the information. Clark had helped to create a monster, and now he was forced to deal with it. After the long moment of thought Clark said, "It is not my fault that Echelon was shut down.
