Behind The Character: Special Agent Jameson

JamesonArmyWhen I was young, I always enjoyed the tough guys in movies and television. The quick one liners directly after an explosion, the huge guns and seemingly endless amounts of bullets, were pure adrenaline to a boy my age. As I grew, I began to notice faults in those depictions. You can’t really punch through a car window to unlock a door. You can’t single handedly take out a compound full of Vietnamese soldiers. My heroes, or at least my concept of a hero, began to change. I needed someone smarter, someone with specific expertise to explain the hows and the whys. A different description of badass began to take shape for me, and eventually manifest itself on the pages of my Montana Marrenger Mysteries.
Jameson is a good looking guy, smart, cynical, and funny in a way that most women find charming. He never quite shed his military background. After serving in Afghanistan and Iraq, that type of lifestyle was something he had gotten used to. He became a Private Military Contractor, bringing on old war buddies to help him with assignments. He was extremely successful at the job, but one particular assignment made him rethink what he should do for the rest of his professional life. That’s when he decided to join up with the FBI, and use his experience to help track the bad guys. This time, he could bring them to justice without the morally gray areas of being a PMC.FBI-IMAGE-GUN
He’s a bit of a player, which his partner, Selena ‘Montana’ Marrenger calls him out on from time to time, but the fact is that as far as personal relationships go, he isn’t at the point of settling down. Jameson likes for his life to keep moving, his days have to be filled to the brim, or else he’ll get bored easily. During his days off, he’ll usually spend his time at the shooting range, jogging, or hitting up the gym. By nightfall, he’ll drink pretty heavily, and reminisce about the glory days when he worked for Uncle Sam.
Having no family left, Jameson often thinks of Selena as a little sister. They aren’t just partners, not just associates on the job, but friends. A soldier always has his partner’s back, on or off the battlefield, and that statement couldn’t be more true about Special Agent Jameson.
