Created by Ralph Dennis (1931-88)
Best remembered, if at all, for his Jim Hardman series, author Ralph Dennis started another series that followed a man named KANE who had once worked for the CIA as an assasin.
Following a botched operation in Saigon, Kane was shot up and suffered some memory loss. His behavior became erratic, and rather than cancel his contract, the CIA decided to erase his memory completely and give him a new one.
The story picks up where we find Kane working as a freelance hitman (or is it a detective?) in Atlanta, unaware of his past. But when he's hired to track down a client's missing brother, vague memories start to pop up, and the CIA decides keeping Kane alive may be more trouble than it's worth.
It was a fun idea (see the The Bourne Identity by Robert Ludlum and The Long Kiss Goodnight by Shane Black), but Dennis' premature death meant there was only one entry in the proposed series.
