Ethan Brooke is a character in the novel Snakehead.
Brooke is blind and has a seeing-eye dog named Garth present most of the time. He is described as "...a large man, in his mid fifties, with sand-colored hair and ruddy, weather-beaten cheeks..." He wears Armani sunglasses rather than the traditional glasses of a blind man.
In his earlier years, Brooke had been a soldier and then a lieutenant colonel with the commandos. Later in his career, a land mine in East Timor rendered him blind and the Covert Action Division (CAD) of the ASIS offered him a position. In the novel Snakehead, he was the Head of the ASIS CAD.
His second in command is Marc Damon.
