The protagonist has been sitting on the porch for several years and peacefully reading the newspaper. He is not interested in missions, threats to the world and cataclysms. The case of the past remains in the memory. Ethan no longer intends to spend his own strength to once again save humanity. Age makes itself felt. It is better to spend time quietly with family, children, but a spy is never a former one, and how can one forget about a turbulent past. Constant dreams and horrors in the subconscious make you have a loaded gun under your pillow, be ready for any situation that can happen suddenly. It is better to be careful, if necessary, to protect relatives and friends. He learned in his youth, when it was reliably impossible to figure out the first time, where is an ally, and where is a traitor. Such things come with experience, and after that they are remembered forever.
But everything suddenly changes. Former ghosts of the past fell upon his quiet house. Former enemies are planning to take all the most precious things into it. Such an incredible revenge will break the old fighter. No one expected that a man would be able to stand up and start fighting. He did not involve the former agency in which he worked, preferring to conduct business alone. Cases on the personal front are always resolved independently, without intervention and advice.
