Publisher Description

The secretary of state has been kidnapped by Islamic extremists and his only hope for survival is a reconstituted Presidential Agent team in this revival of W. E. B. Griffin's New York Times bestselling series.

Secretary of State Frank Malone has been kidnapped from his Cairo hotel—his security detail wiped out. President Natalie Cohen is left with several unacceptable options. It's time to think outside the box, and that can only mean one thing: the revival of the Presidential Agent program.

Cohen calls for Charley Castillo to come out of retirement to direct a new Presidential Agent, one Captain P. K. "Pick" McCoy, USMC. Charley may be too old to kick down doors and take names, but Killer McCoy is just the man to get the job done.

Together, they will track the kidnapped secretary from Cairo to sub-Saharan Africa. The only problem is that one man can't hope to win against an army of terrorists...good thing there are two of them.

Good follow-on to WEB Griffin

Engaging story with plenty of good action scenes, with the latter being an improvement over novels written by Griffin. Junior was a good character but McCoy felt one dimensional - in idealistic Captain America kind of way. In Semper Fi, Pick McCoy’s grandfather was a much more nuanced character who have little of the idealistic naïveté, which is more believable as befitting of a veteran. Pick’s idealism didn’t feel realistic - for example, stopping to check on a civilian while in hot pursuit. Also, there are too many headshots in the shooting scenes. As Chris Kyle’s biography would tell you, soldiers aim for center of mass, not flashy Hollywood head shots. This is especially so given many of the engagements were close and Pick was using a battle rifle spitting out 7.62 cartridge.

Where’s Svetlana?

All of Castillo’s family have literally been written out of the new book.
I loved the new book, but come on guys, Charlie’s entire family and especially his wife Svetlana? She was a GREAT character as were her extended family, and his interaction with them helped make his character.
I certainly hope his Russian family were simply away on sabbatical.

Well done & written …

Refreshing pace forward — combining previous series characters into this novel. Definitely worth the read and wait for the next installment! “Junior” (new character) 👊🏽
