Publisher Comments:

The crackling new novel in the bestselling Honor Bound series by the #1 New York Times– bestselling master of the military thriller.

W.E. B. Griffi‛s Honor Bound saga of World War II espionage in Germany and Argentina has long been immensely popular:“Enough derring-do, romance and action to satisfy Griffi‛s legion of fans and bring him new one” (Rocky Mountain News);“Cletus Frad‛s services to his countries, his fealty to honor and his courage in the face of danger lift this thriller right off the bookshelf and onto the nightstan” (The Star-Ledger).

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 pilot recruited by the OSS, with strong family ties to Argentina, and in Death and Honor—Griffi‛s fourth book in the series and the first since 1999—h‛s got a lot on his hands.

OSS chief Wild Bill Donovan has asked him to set up his own official-but-really-OSS airline in Argentina, using“loane” Lockheed Lodestars and Constellations. Of even more concern are two interwoven German operations. The first is a government scheme for Jews outside the Fatherland to purchase the freedom of their relatives in concentration camps, who will then be transported to Argentina and Uruguay. The second has to do with where that money is going: a plan called Operation Phoenix, which will establish safe havens for senior Nazi officials in Argentina, Brazil, and Paraguay. Needless to say, the OSS is very interested in both of them, and if Frade can somehow find out a little more . . . without getting killed, that is. Which, as Frade is about to find out, is easier said than done.

Rich with the special flair that Griffi‛s fans have long come to expect from him, Death and Honor is another“immensely entertaining adventur” (Kirkus Reviews) from one of our finest storytellers.

Synopsis:

Cletus Frade, a Marine pilot recruited by the OSS, investigates two interwoven German operations--the first to buy passage for Jews to Argentina and Uruguay from concentration camps, and the second to find out where the money is going.

Synopsis:

October 1945. The war is over. The OSS has been disbanded. But for Cletus Frade and his colleagues in the OSS, the fight goes on…

In the closing months of the war, the U.S. made a secret deal with Reinhard Gehlen, head of German intelligences Soviet section. In exchange for a treasure trove of intelligence on the Soviets and their spies within the U.S. atomic bomb program, Gehlens people would be spirited to safety in Argentina.

Only a handful of people know about the deal. If word got out, all hell would break loose—and the U.S. would lose some of the most valuable intelligence sources they possess. It is up to Frade and company to keep them safe.

But some people have other ideas....
