They are the most versatile, deadly, best trained – and certainly best-looking – troop of secret agents in the world. The D.E.B.S. are four young women who have been specially trained at a secret “academy” as part of an undercover government mission – after having been hand-picked for the job at inconspicuous nationwide academic trials to test their suitability.Dressed in their tartan mini-skirts and white socks they do not, at first sight, look like anything more than well-behaved schoolgirls. But, in reality, they are fighting at the forefront of national security. Max is their leader – a military genius and a tough cookie; Janet is the rather absent-minded baby of the family; French exchange-student Dominique is a chain-smoker and just crazy about boys. Amy, however, is the troop’s star agent. Not only did she attain top marks during the test, she also has the perfect boyfriend and a pristine personal file to boot. But then, during a particularly dangerous mission, she is kidnapped by Lucy Diamond. A jewel-mad bank robber, Diamond is the personification of all that is evil in the world: nobody who crosses her path lives long enough to speak badly about her. And then something incredible occurs: Amy falls in love with the D.E.B.S’ arch-enemy. In doing so she puts the existence of the whole group at risk…
