Annie Walker Bio She may be new to the government's most secretive branch, but 28-year-old Annie Walker has the uncanny instincts, tenacity and persistence that could make this girl-next-door a lethal weapon. Although her first mission unexpectedly ends in a hail of bullets, Annie doesn't get flustered or second-guess her new career path when the Agency unexpectedly promotes her to field operative. If anything, it has made her more determined to be good at her job and see her assignments through...As Annie plunges headlong into her new job, she soon realizes it means having to lead a double life, whether it's lying to her family or facing down ruthless terrorists around the world and enemies of the state. Unlike her older sister Danielle who has worked hard to build a stable, reliable, and predictable life, Annie likes the peripatetic and unpredictable nature of working for the Agency. But she'll soon find out that staying emotionally unattached could prove to be far more challenging than staying alive.
