Vargas Hamilton
Life Is A Gas
by David Cocklin

After years as a highly trained secret agent with the world as her playground, Vargas Hamilton is handpicked from the ranks of the CIA to head a new, top-secret division called PT1. This special assignment team is tasked with undertaking the agency’s most dangerous and desperate plots. Armed only with her trusted Maxim 9 pistol and ESEE Strike knife, her first assignment lands her in the middle of an organized ring of contract killers, drug dealers, and defected agents. They are set on upending the global balance of power and have developed a weaponized gas capable of unspeakable destruction. Her investigation leads her around the world and down a rabbit hole of deception that seems to lead all the way to the White House itself.

Hand selected from the ranks of the CIA, Vargas Hamilton heads PT1, a special assignment team that is tasked with confronting only the most dangerous, delicate and desperate plots. Her natural instincts, extensive training and lethal temperament, wreak havoc in the diabolical world of criminal masterminds and terrorists alike.

Armed only with her trusted Maxim 9 pistol and Esee strike knife, her first assignment lands her right in the middle of contract killers, drug dealers, defected agents, and a new targeting gas, that threatens the world as we know it. But that’s not the worst of it! What she discovers opens a door into the CIA, and internal deception, that may lead all the way to the White House.
