Created by Christopher Reich
The first name seems like a blatant shout-out (a scream-out?) to Simon Templar (aka “The Saint”), and the last name is hardly less subtle, but Christopher Reich’s London-based, jet-setting, gentlemanly “professional problem solver” and “freelance industrial spy” SIMON RISKE gets the job done and is more than willing the take the risks wherever he finds himself.
He may live in a funky apartment over a garage in Central London, but he’s just as likely to be found in Monte Carlo, New York, Switzerland or Paris. The dude gets around. And while he may seem like a gentleman and a well-dressed bon vivant, but there’s some grit (and well as, yes, a particular skill set) in his background — he’s an ex-con who once did time for theft. He hasn’t so much redeemed himself and upped the ante.
