W.E. B. Griffin returns to his Honor Bound series set in the shadows of World War II espionage in South America…
May 1945: Just weeks after Hitler’s suicide, Cletus Frade and his colleagues in the Office of Strategic Services are fighting several new and deadly battles. The first is political—with every department from Treasury to War to the FBI grabbing for OSS covert agents and assets. The second is military—with the OSS having smuggled Germans into Argentina for years because of their knowledge of Soviet KGB agents in America’s atomic bomb program. The third concerns what might be the next world war against Red Joe Stalin and his voracious ambitions.
To get an early advantage, Frade has been conducting a secret and daring operation against the Communists. But to do it undetected, he and his men must walk a perilously dark line. Because all it takes is one slip—and everyone becomes a casualty of war.
In this latest installment in Griffin and Butterworth's Honor Bound series, WWII is winding down and Maj. Cletus Frade a citizen of both the United States and Argentina with strong ties to military, political, and business elites in both nations must navigate a convoluted maze of intelligence operations and conflicting agendas to prevent the Germans from creating a sanctuary for Nazis in South America. Narrator Scott Brick dazzles in this audio edition, providing a wide array of international accents and voices for Griffin and Butterworth's characters. Among the many standouts are Frade, who Brick lends a voice that is aristocratic, mysterious, and infused with a touch of bravado, and two German soldiers participating in covert anti-Hitler campaigns. However, listeners new to the series may find themselves struggling to keep up with the book's twisting and turning plot and extensive roster of characters. A Putnam hardcover.
