The Presidential Agent adventures return in the most harrowing novel yet in the #1 New York Times–bestselling series.
M exican drug cartels are shooting up the streets of Laredo and El Paso. Somali pirates are holding three U.S. tankers for ransom. The President is fed up and has what he thinks is a pretty bright idea—to get hold of Colonel Charley Castillo and his merry band and put them on the case. Unfortunately, that will be difficult. Everybody knows that the President hates Castillo’s guts, has just had him forcibly retired from the military, and now Castillo’s men are scattered far and wide, many of them in hiding. There are also whispers that the President himself is unstable—the word “nutcake” has been mentioned.
How will it all play out? No one knows for sure, but for Castillo and company, only one thing is definite: It will be hazardous duty.

Hazardous Duty, W.E.B. Griffin and son.
When an author writes a series of novels about the same characters he gets a group of readers who want to follow the stories of these characters, and who like the style of writing employed. If that author suddenly decides to write a book in the series which is written in the style of second-rate humorous novels (and the M*A*S*H novels after the original are second-rate with the possible exception of M*A*S*H Goes to Maine) he is just going to alienate his fans. This novel, number 8 in Griffin’s Presidential Agent series, should be avoided by all serious Griffin fans.
