If you’re anything like me, then you’re a fan of spy movies and TV shows.
After all, who doesn’t enjoy watching a James Bond or Sydney Bristow kick butt as they go after the bad guys and save the world?
Of course, before any of that action can take place, there’s a lot of research done to find out exactly who the bad guys are. That’s where a team of investigators and agents come in who don’t get to take part in the car chases or gunplay, but whose roles are just as important.
