About Ken Walther

As Technical Undercover Operative of the clandestine services, he is the real life version of some box office fiction.

For nearly three decades the covert, true-to-life practitioner of CIA spy technology, assumed various Covers and Identities in working targets around the globe.

Ken Walther at home in Las Vegas

From Africa, to Southeast Asia, to Central America, Europe and beyond, he practiced the black arts for the Clandestine Services. 

Racking  up 102 Countries while living overseas for 20 years countering  terrorism, genocide, espionage and assassination, he learned to sleep with one eye open, always faces the door, and uses tradecraft all operatives adapt to their everyday lives. 

A recipient of the Intelligence Medal of Merit for conducting operations of high national security value, as well as the Career Intelligence Medal and numerous certificates from the US Department of State and from foreign intelligence services,  Ken is instructor, engineer, paramilitary colleague and technologist.

Still on the cutting edge of technology as a consultant and entrepreneur in Las Vegas, Ken lives among us, a Consular Emissary.   But we just call him “Q”.

“One of the more famous capers he worked on involved the creation of devices that looked and acted like bombs, except they couldn’t detonate.  CIA operatives gave the devices to Spanish terrorists who in 1983 planned to kill Juan Carlos, the King of Spain.  Hidden within the fakes were homing devices that led to the terrorists’ capture.”-“Spies In The Valley” by Joe Shoenmann, Las Vegas Sun Oct. 22, 2009
