Description

The crackling new novel in the bestselling Honor Bound series by the number-one New York Times-bestselling master of the military thriller. The year is 1943, and Argentina is officially neutral but crawling with every kind of spy, sympathizer, and military official imaginable. The hero is Cletus Frade, a Marine fighter pilot ace recruited as a spy by the Office of Strategic Services. He has strong family ties to Argentina, and in Death and Honor-Griffin's fourth book in the series, his first since 1999-Frade has got a lot on his hands. OSS chief "Wild Bill" Donovan has asked him to set up in Argentina his own official-but-really-OSS airline, using "loaned" Lockheed Lodestars. Of even more concern are two interwoven, highly secret German operations. The first is a Nazi scheme for German Jews outside the Fatherland to purchase the freedom of their relatives in concentration camps. The second has to do with where all that dirty money is going: a plan called OPERATION PHoeNIX, which will establish safe havens in Argentina, Brazil, and Paraguay for senior Nazi officials who fear they've all but lost the war. Needless to say, the OSS is very interested in both operations-which is to say President Franklin Roosevelt is very interested-and Frade must somehow find out a little more...?ithout getting killed, that is. And Frade, whose father's murder was ordered by the Nazis, knows that's damn easier said than done. Filled with the special flair that Griffin's fans have long come to expect from him, Death and Honor is another "immensely entertaining adventure" (Kirkus Reviews) from one of our finest storytellers.

Professional reviews

"In the last installment (1999) of Griffin's Honor Bound series, Cletus Frade, a U.S. Marine fighter pilot turned OSS officer, was sent to Argentina in 1943 to learn what he could about two secret Nazi operations. This time the story picks up just after Frade has survived a German assassination attempt and his Argentinean father is killed. Scott Brick is adept at switching between Latin and German accents and English. His pronunciation of guttural German names and titles is impeccable. One can vividly imagine his characters goose-stepping and saluting. Griffin excels in making simple conversation exciting, and Brick's ironic tone holds one's attention even though a conversation may last several tracks. Here's hoping we don't have to wait another nine years for the next installment. A.L.H. (c) AudioFile 2008, Portland, Maine"
