A Legend, the Reinforcement, Agent One, all of these names for Evelyn Slide, the number one agent of the CIP. The CIP was founded back in a time of spies, wars, and lies, Central Internal Placement. The main goal is simple: send an agent in, collect intel, and respond to the situation. 
      
      Evelyn Slide had this all under routine, after all she is known as a pathological liar but in this game there is nothing wrong with that. She works alone and gets the job done, her list of completed missions is longer than any other agent could hope for. 
      
      Some don't even believe in her, some believe she's fictional, made up by the agency to coerce the new recruits into doing better, but that is simply not the case. Evelyn works as a ghost, only speaking to her boss when collecting details for a new mission.
      
      The day things changed was the day she was assigned to infiltrate Omni Tech, a company believed to be doing human experiments. In order to do this mission she was given a team, working with other agents isn't exactly her speciality. After all when you don't carry empathy how can you be a people person? 
      
      What Evelyn didn't expect was that OMNI TECH working on humans, making people with extraordinary abilities. They are looking for someone with enough resilience to handle two powers, and guess who is the perfect match?

  "I'll just be going then." I enforced the helpless victim façade with this statement.
  
  "You're very pretty, let's have some fun." The words came out in a jumble and it took me a few seconds to piece together what he said. Needing to burn off energy I let the third and the second guy shove me against the brick.
  
  "So I've been told." I snapped back and saw the eyes of the bald widen for a second before I wrenched my arms away from the second and third guy and clutched the throat of the man in front of me.

                              The plot is so so interesting! I'm not usually one for reading action novels, but you've pulled off the beginning so nicely!
                              The build up of action in the van and the protagonists humour when she said she had to be somewhere else was really great! I loved it!

Lol. "Whoops." I love it. I can just see her face, like Marilyn Monroe putting a gloved hand to her mouth before beating the hell out of a bunch of dudes.  However, I don't know if your protagonist is blonde, not like hair colour matters.

Your action sequences are gold. Your description of the fight along with the witty dialog is great and works well. Also, as a martial artist, I loved the use of hand-to-hand combat and your choreography of it.

Your character description is done in a really nice and subtle way. I can already tell Evelyn is a total badass well done!
