Ezra Rosenbaum

International financier supported economical interests in quiet partnership between the United States and Great Britain.  Imprisoned at Auschwitz at the age of ten Ezra survived through sacrifices made by strangers.  Whether it was rations or a shirt to cover his emaciated body from cold, Ezra never forgot.  He spent the rest of his life is support of Human Rights as being one of the most altruistic philanthropist in New York City.

Jack’s final assignment was to provide security for Ezra.  At a summit in South Africa Ezra was approached by a former survivor with information of an elaborate plan to reduce global population through war, created epidemic and soft kill.  Ezra called upon his friend/body guard to investigate these allegations against the most powerful nations in the world.

With proof of these horrendous acts upon humanity, and an upcoming economical submit at the United Nations, Ezra prepared for the presentation.  He was scheduled to report on global economics instead he would bring to light propagated genocide.  Which began on the citizens of Africa through the guise of small pox inoculation infested with the aids virus.

A healthy man, Ezra was not under a physicians care.  His short brick stature, wiry, thick, gray hair and deep brown eyes, were clear in the picture of health.  Each day he would walk five miles except the day of the meeting.  Ezra was the first keeper to die.  The microchip of death would be held in secret for nine years.


Eliza Rosenbaum

Eliza Rosenbaum, wife and widow of Ezra, a petite woman with fire in her eyes and heart of a warrior.  A philanthropist like her husband, a woman, whose loss in the camp of Auschwitz never defined her life purpose.  Eliza watched as her parents and sister walked into the showers never to return.

Eliza supported the Arts, Homeless Shelters, and mentored hundreds of young people that society had discarded.  One young woman did not fall into that category, an individual she would love as a daughter, Shanon McNally.


Shanon McNally

Shanon was a survivor of sorts.  At the age of four her parents perished in an automobile accident.  Her fraternal grandmother, an independent woman who became the first woman contractor in nineteen-fifty, was mother and father.  Four months before Shanon graduated college, her grandmother passed.

Although Shanon did not have the financial freedom of a philanthropist, she stood for the rights of children, challenged the broken education system.  She wanted to shape the lives of the future. She became an educator, a kindergarten teacher.  The decision to visit New York City after graduation would be the catalyst of transformation.  The cultivator of young souls would live conspiracies, interrogations, and assaults.  More than once would she find her hands stained in blood.

Shanon’s bond with Eliza brought her life lessons she would carry to eternity.  Eliza would bring Jack Smith into Shanon’s life. Upon Eliza’s untimely death, Shanon became executor of Eliza’s estate.  The nine years Shanon spent with her mentor, surrogate mother/grandmother brought her what life had not given, the ability to trust another human being.  This Irish Catholic woman, of long wavy red hair and emerald green eyes small in stature would capture the soul of a restless warrior.


Paul Gregory

CIA operative under Commander Smith for twenty years, like all the men of Black Covert Corp respect for Jack knew no boundaries.  Paul was the electronics genius of the group.  There was no security system he could not breech, no computer system, he could not hack.  Although these elite few eliminated emotions long before, Paul and Jack were brothers by choice.

Paul’s six-foot frame, shoulder length, straight black hair and hypnotic blue eyes attracted many women.  Yet Paul loved only one woman, a woman bound to another.  In contrast to Jack’s steel, intense persona, Paul was relaxed, easy going.

Casey Knudson

Agent Knudson like each man under Commander Smith held specialized talents.  Casey was an expert with sniper’s tools and could alter the physical appearance of any individual with the expertise of a professional FX artist.  Small in statue compared to the men of the unit, his gray eyes, curly light brown hair with dimpled cheeks, he was as boyishly cute as Steve was handsome.  Casey trained as an Army Ranger the only ground soldier in the group of seals.

Kevin Cooper

Jesse Skye

Jesse, like Paul was an electronics expert.  There was no surveillance, firewall, network or satellite system he could not gain access to never leaving a trace.  Jesse was also a bomb expert, diffusing the most intricate devices was a game in which he reveled.  There was one additional reason Jack chose Jesse for his squad.  His physical features and stature illuminated Paul so closely they could be twins.


Maggie Martin

Beautiful Maggie whose natural sun-lit blond hair fell in spiral curls cascading to the middle of her back.  With wide almond shaped blue eyes mounted with an array of long lashes, it was her porcelain skin, natural blush cheeks that defined her physical perfection.  Maggie was Shanon’s source of truth, lifelong friend sister in spirit not of birth.

Madeline was born to a mother addicted to methamphetamine, no one was quite sure of the identity of Madeline’s father.  At the age of two, child services were called in when a concerned neighbor phoned in a complaint of a child crying.  Madeline’s mother had passed from an overdose two days before.

State workers brought Madeline to the children’s shelter at the convent and for the next two years Madeline barely spoke and did not interact well with the sisters of the convent or other children.  She was a tiny recluse whose wide blue eyes hungered for knowledge, a beautiful four year old, with an empty soul.  Madeline remained closed off from the world until a new preschool teacher walked into the classroom, Shanon McNally.

Madeline opened her soul and world to Shanon.  In a few months, the petite curly haired blonde angle would find a home with Jack and Shanon.  In their love she bloomed.  Not only was Madeline highly intelligent, she was also a gifted artist.  Madeline was the youngest keeper whose courage and hope never diminished.

Jack was not only an acquaintance of Ira Weitz but also his most challenging case.  Ira would fight one final battle for “The Lighthouse Keeper” securing his freedom from Homeland Security, FBI and those who controlled America.  No man or woman could free Jack from the lethal conflict within.
