Tim Kyle is the lead agent for Pulsar International.
Pulsar is a large security organization able to handle whatever mission its clients had. Working normally for world governments or huge conglomerates, the jobs done by Pulsar might involve couriering secret papers, training would-be agents, ferreting out moles, or setting up nationwide security networks. As such, this company's intelligence work covered both defensive and offensive aspects. Chief among their clientele was the CIA from whom many of Pulsar's operatives came.
Kyle is the Chief Field Officer of Pulsar and a founding member of the organization since it began in Atlanta twenty years earlier. His loyalty to his boss and to the company he had given so much of his time to was unquestionable. His seniority in the company would easily qualify him for a huge corner office but his skill in the field, and his enjoyment of it, was such that it would have been a waste.
Now 42, Kyle is quite a lot different than most of the male agents detailed in this compendium. First, he is very happily married with three children so strike the normal woman-chasing spy stereotype. Second, he is blessed with, and uses often, a 'computer-like' brain.
The books make a lot of this computer brain idea. Often he would use its swift speed to rapidly reason out a situation. Other times he would allow a compartment to consider a matter while he tended to other things. And occasionally he would shut out the rest of the world so he might concentrate on one item alone. The font style of the cover is definitely 70's computer-ish further pushing that this was a state-of-the-art kind of agent.
