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.
I have all the books this author has written. This was disappointing. Too much time spent reviewing things already covered in previous books and very little interaction with previously established characters. The book was out of character for the series. Hopefully, he is laying the groundwork for the next book in the series.
Waste of Time
I've been a fan for decades...and continue to think of myself that way. Yet these last few books (one could say chapters) in the series have been beyond disappointing. I'm 200+ pages into this latest addition and we've barely gotten beyond a rehash of the entire book series! I thought the last book was bad for doing that...this one has hit rock bottom. If you're a fan, and expect to stay that way, don't waste you're time with this. I won't even attempt to finish this one. It's insulting.
I have read everything that Mr. Griffin has written. However, his last two novels have been total disappointments.
