As with his three enormously popular series-Brotherhood of War, The Corps, and Badge of Honor-Honor Bound and Blood and Honor, W. E. B. Griffin's novels of World War II espionage in Germany and Argentina, became immediate bestsellers. These are "immensely entertaining adventures" (Kirkus Reviews), "superior war stories" (Library Journal) "whose twists and turns keep readers guessing until the last page" (Publishers Weekly). Now, in Secret Honor, Griffin creates his most rousing novel yet. In Wolf's Lair, a German general works toward the assassination of Adolf Hitler. In Buenos Aires, the general's son, codenamed Galahad, falls under suspicion by the SS after a Nazi operation suddenly goes bad. In the middle of it all is OSS agent Cletus Frade, who knows the identity of them both and what they will do nextif they can survive that long. For not only are SS and Abwehr officers hot on their trails in both countries, but the OSS has branded Frade a rogue agent and is determined to shake the truth from him, at whatever cost. If Frade can't figure out a way to hold them all off, then the futures of all three men may be very short indeed. Written with all the special flair that Griffin's readers expect, filled with high drama and real heroes, Secret Honor is further proof, in Tom Clancy's words, that "Griffin is a storyteller in the grand tradition."

"Secret Honor is the third book in W.E.B. Griffin's series about life, love, and intrigue in neutral Argentina during WWII. Reader Scott Brick does a wonderful job presenting the fascinating characters and circumstances. Complex German and Argentinean names for people and places roll off of his tongue. Conversations and narrative sections are delivered with smooth authenticity. Much of the interaction and banter between rival intelligence officers is written with satirical flare. Brick adds just the right lilt and cadence to his delivery, leaving listeners feeling as if they were eavesdropping at a nearby table in some dark bar. However, there is one minor difficulty: Griffin uses the thoughts of major characters to help tell his story. In print, these words are italicized to differentiate their purpose. It's tough to vocalize italics, so some important material is confusing. But Brick's sterling effort prevails. T.J.M. Winner of AUDIOFILE Earphones Award (c) AudioFile 2001, Portland, Maine"
