Ghosts of Yesterday novel
Walter Simmons was regarded as the head of Sector Seven, despite the fact that they had no distinctions among them. Though he had not served in the military, Simmons was regarded as powerful, and a little scary. It was said he knew where most of the skeletons were buried, and how they had become skeletons in the first place.
When Ghost 1 was lost, Colonel Kinnear decided not to immediately inform him, as there was really nothing substantial to report. Later, when Simmons did hear, he was upset, but not as badly as Kinnear had feared. He also assigned Kinnear to oversee the moving of the Ice Man from the Arctic base to a more secure facility holding another alien device. They had received some intelligence that the Soviets might know something about the Ice Man, and Simmons wanted Kinnear to ensure everything went smoothly.
