Now he spent his time tending to his farm in southern Indiana, betrayed by the very government he swore to protect at all cost. His identity stripped, he didn’t exist- he had no past and very little future. Agent Miles was slowly becoming a myth, a whisper on old men’s lips. Younger agents believed him to be a ghost story that older agents shared to scare the daylights out of them. Most of the people in his small town knew him as Uncle Chuck, that nice guy that held doors open for young women and helped the elderly across the road. The “Old boy scout” some called him, but little did they know at one time he was one of the country’s most effective military killing machines.Only a handful of government officials knew he existed for sure and knew that someone within our own government was still releasing a healthy salary to agent Miles. One of these officials was his old friend and President of the United States of America Oliver Crawford. What do you do if you are the president of the United States and each of your intelligent reports and every one of your top advisers advise you that you are facing the biggest global terrorist hit in modern history? Your gut, however, tells you there is something more. It tells you that all these signs point to something home grown and it points to the fact that some of your top advisers are working against you. It tells you although you may have recently won the election you dont necessarily have full control of your country. If you are President Oliver Crawford, you turn to the only man that can be trusted in these times. You turn to phantom agent Chuck Miles who doesnt exist on paper and reenact him to defend a country that turned their back on him 20 years before. When you are up against the unknown you need an unpredictable, loyal, and above the law individual to fight for your side. When you are facing your last winter sometimes you have to bet on the long shot.
