My wife and I have been binge watching a TV series called Blacklist which rivals 24 for its drama and intensity. James Spader stars as international bad-guy Ray Reddington. He’s on the top of the FBI’s most-wanted list but works with the agency to help them track down bad-guys that are as bad as he is. Somehow, he gets the FBI to help him get what he wants and he gets the bad guys to give him what he wants from them. Everybody gets what they want because he is so good at using leverage.
