Jameson: A Practical Beginning (or Thanks a Garotte for Nothing)
"Jameson!", MacTaggart screamed. It seemed he was particularly annoyed with his new recruit today.
"Yes, sir?", Jameson replied.
"What the hell is this?"
"It's a garotte, sir."
"I know that, recruit. But is this some kind of joke?"
"No, sir. It just didn't seem very cost-effective to use the given materials."
MacTaggart looked at all the other agents' garottes. Wires made of titanium, steel, polycarbonate plastic, and other hardened, yet flexible, materials were attached to custom-made handles. They gleamed with their deadly purpose. With one of these, an agent could quickly, and quietly, dispatch an adversary. He then returned to Jameson's; a shoe string tied securely between two sticks.
"Oh, and sir, this is a lot more expedient and environmentally friendly solution."
MacTaggart could only shake his head in disbelief. What had the office sent him?
Jameson, even from the beginning, was a practical man in an unpractical occupation. And thus begins... The Jameson Exploits.
